I'm listening to the news and they announce that at Sunfest, a local festival in West Palm Beach, all handbags and backpacks are being searched and they are not letting anyone with bag or backpack larger than 12x12. I guess they don't make an 11x11 pressure cooker? The irony is it's perfectly legal to carry a concealed firearm in.

Can you say "kneejerk"?

And this would stop what? I am sure you could make a bomb and hide it in a Lays potato chip bag. Evil people with evil intentions spend a lot of time researching and perfecting their craft. People with good intentions fail to look past the obvious.

It seems that were destined to always fight the last war, prevent the last terrorist attack Our security officials need to learn to think outside the box. Maybe a red agressor group will work.

Yup.

If the restrictions at the airports are any indication, liquids in concentrations greater than 3oz can be a dire threat, as can shoe soles. Can't imagine what a person could stuff into platform shoes or boots, in that regard. Imagine all the ~20oz water containers, supposedly all containing water, let alone items like CamelBack packs.

Short of coming in naked, a determined violent murderer can find a way to sidestep checks for violent murderers.

And so, it comes to this: How much liberty are we willing to trade in the vain hope it'll yield security and safety from harm? How much unconstitutionality are we prepared to accept of our hirelings?

Bolded - That won't work either. Who says they can't swallow the device or explosive components...or implant them somewhere...:blink:
"Nightly News at 10: Officials are reminding everyone to wear sweatpants and prepare for long wait times getting into the city sheep shearing festival. Long lines and a shortage of lubricant are going to be a problem this weekend.
Next up - Suspected Islamic Terrorist released to country of origin and encouraged to try again."
:rolleyes:

They have been doing that for years at the UT football games but that was to keep booze out. But this year I am sure they well be doing much more because of what happened in Boston.

Nude marathon = problem solved.

This is getting rediculous. But +1 for allowing CCW.

Do you realize that you have a point there? Aren't the Muslim men suppose to kill themselves if they see a neked woman other than their wife?

It pacifies the sheep. Give the flock a false hope and they'll cling to it like a babe to stuffed animal. Ya gotta do something to reinstate the feeling of security, don't ya know!

Sir, If that were the case there would be a lot of dead Muslims . I managed two very Muslim countries fighter aircraft programs and when they were in training in the US the majority hit the topless joints and drank. The favorite spot was the Landing Strip when they were in West Palm Beach. Yes, I accompanied them on many occasions and picked up the bill on my expense account as entertainment.

Age old response. We always prepare for the last threat we encountered....

The terrorists have won, plain and simple. My solution? Go back to pre-Sept-11 life and then move forward. As any threat comes to our people, respond with 100X force and zero guilt. Someone bombs a festival. Make sure and investigate then have a public hanging on the town square.
I've been proposing this for decades. Everything else has been tried. Once upon a time, we were this straightforward in our dealings with murderers. Due process, sure ... but then duly removed from society once determined to have abused the welcome.

I bet someday the TSA will have power over all these events.
