Former Sheriff David Clarke declined to cite or charge concealed carry permit holders who brought their gun to an airport checkpoint.
In a 2016 statement, Clarke told the I-TEAM "I trust CCL holders."
Acting Sherif Richard Schmidt has changed procedure at the airport and will enforce the county ordinance.
Schmidt, in a statement, said CCL holders "will receive a county citation for presenting a weapon at a checkpoint."
Mark Lendvay said that citation will come on top of a federal fine of up to $3,000 and potential federal criminal charges.
It's a strong reaction, but Lendvay said it is necessary.
TSA never knows when an honest mistake could be cover for something more sinister.
"Although they say they forgot, we don't know if someone is testing the system. We don't know if that 'oops I forgot' is someone trying nefariously to come through the system with a weapon," Lendvay said.
