Reminds me of what one of our founding fathers
Those who trade essential liberty for a little temporary safety,
deserves neither liberty nor safety.

Weapons and ammunition exists that are "aircraft
friendly". It is time to put away this nonsense that everyone carrying
a gun on an aircraft "must" be a terrorist. Maybe it is just someone
who recognizes the government is powerless to protect them despite their rhetoric.
Just how were their regulations successful in preventing this most recent disaster?
Armed pilots or aircrew would be helpful. An
air marshal on every flight is better than nothing but a scheduling nightmare
and puts one more person at risk. The crew is always there. They are professionals
and know when they are in danger. They should be the first line of defense.
The fact is, even a decompression of an aircraft
is surviveable. A madman induced controlled flight into a stationary object
These recent recommendations for airport security
are a joke. They will do nothing; I repeat nothing to make your visit to an
airport any more than a major pain in the ass. If our government is to be believed,
these recommendations are unnecessary because if they do what they say they
are going to do, terrorists will no longer be a problem. I'm sure you believe
It is time to take fantasy out of the equation.
These airport security measures, being enforced by minimum wage high school
dropouts in a fancy uniform are totally useless. Air marshals put an end to
unscheduled flights to Havana and were replace by the vapor fix of the security
checkpoint. Clearly these cannot stop a dedicated madman or as the recent episode
clearly shows, a conspiracy of madmen. Madmen will succeed despite our concerted
and often expensive methods to prevent them.
20,000 gun laws have not prevented criminals
from acquiring guns. They have only prevented law-abiding citizens from acquiring
guns and being able to use those guns in their own defense.
20,000 laws regulating air travel and airport
security will not stop terrorists from boarding airplanes. What will stop them
is the ultimate authority of the aircraft crew, an ARMED aircraft crew. --Fight
