Security for President Barack Obama's second inauguration will, of course, be extremely tight. Uniformed police will be everywhere in Washington. ---snip--- But some of the security is meant to be nearly invisible. At Union Station, two men who could have been waiting for a train were actually DHS Behavioral Detection Officers who blend into the crowd. Trained to look for suspicious behavior among passengers, they were in communication with teams of armed TSA officers.

teams of armed TSA officers.

That thought alone is scary.

They are NOT “good guys”. They are protecting the enemy of the USA.

Don’t be surprised if a government “plant” fires a round or two during the inauguration just to put the final nail in the 2nd Amendment coffin. It would be the culmination of a lot of anti-American strategy this administration has been cooking up.

Agreed. Anyone who partakes in the destruction of America is NOT a “good guy”.

One of the politicians instrumental in creating the TSA, Rep. John Mica, who wrote the legislation that established the TSA, has apparently decided that the whole thing has been a failure and should be dismantled. He notes that “the whole program has been hijacked by bureaucrats.”
“It mushroomed into an army,” Mica said. “It’s gone from a couple-billion-dollar enterprise to close to $9 billion.”

As for keeping the American public safe, Mica says, “They’ve failed to actually detect any threat in 10 years.”

While I approve of good guys with guns, I hope they will all stay away from this terrible event in DC. We need to hunker down and survive the next four years, ignoring unconstitutional demands from the Community-Organizer-in-Chief but avoiding conflict unless we are attacked. As for the TSA, I’ve heard them referred to as child molesters and pedophiles, but good guys?

Paranoia...it’s a real bad thing when the government embodies it. Born of the real threat posed by the bombing of the World Trade Center, that is the spirit of Homeland inSecurity’s reason for being...and abusing.

I understand why you’re saying that but I was trying to point out the hypocrisy of politicians who spare no expense hiring a small army to protect themselves but balk at having armed guards in schools.
