T.I. and Tiny’s daughter, Zonnique Pullins, is explaining what happened last week when she got arrested trying to board  a plane at Hartsfields-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta with a pistol.

Tiny says that Zonnique didn’t have her permit on her, but she IS permitted to carry a weapon — although it wouldn’t have made a difference when trying to get one on the airplane.

Zonnique says it was all one big accident and that she simply forgot she had it on her.

“I was running really late to the airpot, so I was throwing a lot of stuff into my purse so I could get there and the gun is really small and it was in the bottom of my purse,” she tells toofab. “I just forgot it was in there. I couldn’t see it, so when I went through security check, they pretty much found it.”

“I told [the TSA] they could throw it away,” she adds with a laugh, “but that wasn’t what they wanted to do.”

Pullins has the support of her mama, who was actually the one who got her the gun.

“I bought the gun for her because I just felt like she’s staying on her own now, she’s older and we’re not around her as much,” Harris tells toofab. “I don’t really know all of her whereabouts all the time. I felt like she needed something, especially for the house. Somebody break in or whatever, she has some kind of protection.”

Tameka says Zonnique has been trained on how to properly use the weapon, if the situation ever calls for it.

“A gun is no good if you don’t know what to do with it,” adds Tiny. “These streets are crazy. This is my baby, my first love and I just want to make sure she’s safe.”
