T.I. and Tiny are coming out in defense of their daughter Zonnique, following her arrest in Atlanta for carrying a handgun through a TSA check point.

Zonnique claims that she forgot the firearm was in her purse, though she says she has a permit for the weapon. Though she didn’t have the permit on her at the time, T.I and Tiny say they knew Zonnique carried a firearm around- they even encouraged it.

According to TMZ, Tiny even went with her daughter to purchase the .38 caliber pistol, after some encounters with death threats online, and a fan grabbing her at a listening party.
