    A record 18 guns found in 1 day at U.S. TSA checkpoints, 36 last week, TSA blog.

    A record 18 guns were confiscated at U.S. airport security checkpoints on one day this month, alarming homeland security officials tasked with protecting millions of passengers.

    The confiscations were recorded on June 5, according to the U.S. Transportation Security Agency and a day later, two passengers were arrested after bringing loaded handguns into Virginia airports.

    On Monday, a Fairfax County man was cited by police after trying to bring a loaded gun through a security checkpoint at Washington Dulles International Airport the third gun TSA has detected at that airport this year.

    Last week alone, 36 firearms were discovered in carry-on baggage across the country, 33 being loaded and seven had rounds chambered, TSA said in its weekly blog.

    All these guns found, most likely more missed, and still the only ones criminalized are citizens. It is time to end FedGov's WAR ON CITIZENS that is sailing under the false flag of WoT. Woot!

    Sounds more like a war on stupid people that bring guns into restricted areas.

    Alternatively, they might be free men choosing to ignore unconstitutional restrictions?

    What restrictions are those? Just unload, separate the ammon, lock it in a case, and declare it.

    Problem solved.

    I hear you, though. The way the Constitution was intended and still reads, I should be allowed to OC on the airplane itself.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    This is the part that is really scary!

    Do they actually think they are protecting millions? Egos!! The TSA I have met, although anecdotal, could barely run 25 yards. I would question their ability to operate a firearm.

    That is if the owner of the airline permits it.

    Remember, the TSA has never caught terrorists and only catches 15% of attempts to carry contraband through the checkpoints.

    This. The average citizen has stopped more terrorists than the entire TSA combined. Roll back the security theater.

    It is only "stupid" because the state has declared it so.

    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare
