    CCW at the airport

    Stunningly, one can still carry a gun in an airport, right up to the security checkpoint.

    Horrors! Run for the hills!

    Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, was surprised to learn that airports have been allowing weapons for years, and warned that Congress could move to ban the practice. In a July letter to TSA, Thompson called guns in terminals "a threat to the safety of airline travelers."
    That's some predictable "malarky" - as Biden would say.

    Some gun owners who take their weapons to the airport cite the need for protection. Others carry a gun frequently and say they do not want to be bothered finding a place to stash it if they go to the airport.

    Joel Rosenberg, a firearms instructor in Minneapolis, said he regularly carries a gun to the city's airport and has not heard of any problems caused by the policy.

    "People who are law-abiding are going to be law-abiding whether they have a .38 snubby on their hip or not," he said.
    Imagine that.

    I think airplane crashes are a threat to the safety of airline travelers and people like Thompson are a threat to the Constitution.

    THIS kind of logic could lead to banning guns from ANY public building. But, automobiles cause more deaths per year than guns, shouldn't they be banned first?

    Not just crashes, but terrorists too.
