I'm also pretty sure we have quite a few people on this forum that have shown up at a security checkpoint with something that is banned, through no malicious intent of their own. Pocket knives, ammo or spent casings in the carry on bag, etc. (Or a bottle of water, OMG) I'm not saying what she did was right, I'm saying that it was a minor lapse in judgement that should have been handled with her being told to take it back to her car. Not having a huge scene made of it. This one incident will probably cost tax payers well north of $10K. I'd rather have that money spent on something else.
    I understand your point but let me give you a scenario and tell me what folks think should happen to this individual:
    A 12th grade teacher and her husband are fine upstanding folks but like to do "home bedroom movies". This is just for them and not the internet or to show anyone else. The teacher is in a rush for work and takes a tape of a PBS show she was going to use for class. But she did not know that by "accident" one of their movies was on it. She starts the PBS show and walks out for a moment. While she is gone the PBS special switches over to the other content.

    That is an "accident" also. Betcha 5 bucks folks would want that teachers head on a platter. And I would not be surprised that she would be fired for her "accident".

    Point is IMO we like to forgive folks that have "accidents" with their guns but less forgiving for others that make mistakes.


    As far as taking stuff through security, yup, had a ppair of pliers once. But good grief, we are talking about a gun. And I never said to rake her across the coals. But a fine or something else should be done minimum.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    Well, that's because what the teacher did caused harm (or so the theory goes), where as bringing a gun to a checkpoint really doesn't. Well, not any more than a pair of pliers. :)

    I guess that's the point that rubs me the wrong way - why does the TSA have such a phobia of guns when the biggest airplane terrorist attack in history happened with box cutters? The misplaced, irrational fear is what escalated this situation.

    I see no reason to change the language to satisfy some latter day idea of politically correct terminology .

    Per Miriam Webster:

    Definition of STEWARD: an employee on a ship, airplane, bus, or train who manages the provisioning of food and attends passengers



    Definition of STEWARDESS: a woman who performs the duties of a steward; especially : one who attends passengers (as on an airplane)

    It doesn't. It has a phobia about guns, knives, scissors, files, and liquids, and about anything else it can imagine.

    Fixed it for Webster.
