If only they were unionized. /s
On our way overseas, we had several things stolen from our luggage. You are at their mercy because you can’t lock your bags.
I had the misfortune of flying out of Newark about 6X’s.
The potty bowl of US airports!
For crying out loud, who, in 1982 named a baby, "Al?" In Jersey no less.
And people wonder why stereotypes exist.
When congress started this program back in 2001 they knew the employees would be scum.
It’s way past time to disband the DHS, eliminate the TSA, and allow CCW holders to fly fully armed.
Problem solved. And it doesn’t cost taxpayers a dime.
“Problems with babies crying will escalate to aircraft turning into Swiss cheese, and falling to Earth and killing everybody.”
That’s why it won’t happen.
“Thats why it wont happen.”
Nonsense. CCW holders on the whole, are trustworthy individuals who would only brandish a weapon when no other options are left. A requirement for frangible ammunition negates any “swiss cheese” concerns.
Just the likelihood of them being aboard would make any hijack attempt a complete non-starter. So why bother?
See aforementioned Liberal squeak.
They have a section of the country extremely polarized against firearms. Not to mention how many Congressmen *coughschumercough* and Senators *coughboxercough* that are anti-gun as well.
I just realized I called Schumer a Congressman. Is that worse than calling him a bed-wetter?
