    Duh. Nothing like pointing out the obvious. Did anyone think service personnel went thru a TSA screening every time they came and went?

    Not only is there an attack on the 2nd Amendment but it appears the 1st Amendment is being attacked, too. Here I thought that whistle blowers were being protected. I guess it depends on who's being whistle blown.

    Yes TSA is a total joke, a shame they are vengeful upon this fellow
    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

    Gee, ya' mean that embarrassing a powerful, governmental agency sometimes results in punitive retribution? Who'd have ever guessed that? Hasn't anyone (else) ever angered an IRS agent during an audit? I somehow won the random audit-lottery for three more years...in a row!

    These and more flaws have been reported for years. Remember in another thread we discussed the illusion of security. This is just the tip of the ice berg.

    Several weeks ago someone here posted a thread he called "Security Theater." The quote below condensed his thoughts into one sentence:

    "Security theater attempts to make people feel better by putting on a show when, in reality, it accomplishes nothing."

    This seems to pretty accurately describe what's happening with TSA. It's a damn shame that doing so puts so many lives (along with national security, of course) at risk.

    Same thing could be said about Government in general.

    Some of the security flaws are visible only to a few of us, and they are as large as a hanger door.

    Every single person who is forced through screening is a victim of terrorism.

    Terrorism aided and abeted by the US Government.

    Here are the most recent statistics about guns and planes. This kind of security catches most but certainly not all guns. So it's possible a terrorist could get a lucky pass.

    It would be interesting to see the written justification for the claimed revocation by his county sheriff's of his state CHL, or whether the "justification" would merely turn out to be proof of retribution for showing-up Uncle.

    God forbid we reach the point of imprisonment for, say, things like photographing a "military" or "government" subject. While I can see the risk to the status quo via photographing and divulging patent weaknesses that any alert traveler can see, I hardly see it as a threat to anyone's physical well-being.
