I suggest not resorting to what the "Journal News" did. There were only several individuals involved with that article. Their names, addresses, and photos were posted on a map already. Doing it to the TSA and other federal agencies is going to cause more people who may be sitting on the fence to jump to the other side and possibly cause harm to individuals like you and me. I'm sure James Yeager probably sent a few people scrambling to the other side with his rant.
Instead of guessing the motives of the OP for asking a question, why not just answer it with whatever honest answer you have? Like this:

I guess we're just having a fatherly reaction to the question - like if our son asked "Dad, do you know if Home Depot sells fertilizer and kerosene?" We'd feel compelled to ask, aaaahhh I guess so, son, um why do you ask...?
