    To all that are bothered by airport security I apologize. You see all of this is my fault. I'm the one who doesn't want to get blown up, shot, knifed, or hijacked when I fly. Sorry to be such a bother.

    Also to those who chose to drive instead. Go ahead and ignore all those stop signs, speed limits and other traffic control devices, they're such a pain in the butt.

    Agreed. Fairly silly to be harping on the "loaded" aspect. Defensive firearms wouldn't be very useful without being loaded.

    Such a frenzy (beyond the mere fact he was attempting to carry it onto a plane) shows the continued "wooly" nature of the media. If anything, that's a warning to us all that such frenzies won't abate anytime soon.

    Why "nose tackle" him ... you mean, arrest him?

    Probably because attempting to take a firearm onto a commercial airline flight isn't considered very cool by the statutes.

    Bringing a lawsuit doesn't make much sense, in such a clear infraction of a basic statute related to firearms. Personally, I don't think restricting the public from being able to defend themselves even at airports and on airlines makes much sense, but the statute does exist. And, as legitimate upstanding people, we know this. He "forgot" or failed to care enough to consider it also applied to him. A lawsuit won't change that: it was the law.

    Didn't the whole Starbucks thing start in CA where they were OCing unloaded, now he had bullets he may have actually ha intent to defend himself.

    I haven't seen the news coverage on this so forgive me if it's been covered. Did they find the Kimber after he cleared security?

    And while I agree that air travel has become over-priced, over-crowed and overly strips you of your rights and then they charge you for taking a carry on and to check your bag (and then lose the one you checked and refuse a refund); I can tell you that I don't think there is one magic solution (if there is I certainly don't have it).

    And yet with all that "rational and effective hi-tech security," the "Fruit of the Loom" bomber came dangerously close to killing hundreds on Christmas 2009.

    Until we get the political correctness out of airport security measures it will remain laughable and full of holes. Lunacy I prefer not to participate in.

    I prefer to drive when I'm able. And I'll continue to observe the speed limits. That's what cruise control is for.

    P.S. Save me "the flight originated overseas and we have no control over that" dogma... It's a red herring argument at best.

    No upstanding person wants to be attacked. Not on the street, at home, in a car or plane, or simply while out and about.

    IMO, taking a public airliner to a destination is little different than taking a public bus, metro train or subway, other than the altitude. Citizens are forcibly disarmed in only one of these conveyances. I don't see much sense in this, particularly given the laughable quality of the security, which is simply in place to give people a sense of security, not to provide actual security. I appreciate the concerns most people seem to have. Like it or not, I'm in the small minority on this point.

    Don't mistake the branding air travel as lunacy the equivalent to a desire for living a life of danger or crime, in this or other things.

    I happen to choose travel by car instead, whenever possible. It's largely because of the onerous security procedures and crushing delays amongst large groups of silly, fearful people. It has been possible in all cases except a couple, since 2001. Thankfully, my chosen activities can generally be adjusted to accommodate.

    I see as a "pain in the butt" being disarmed for no good reason. A real "pain" is the utter inability to effectively defend onself.

    YMMV.

    Find a way to make millions of dollars and fly charter out of small private airports instead. It would be magical because most of us are never going to have that kind of money.
