TSA airport security checks are little more than security theater. Really expensive security theater. Security theater that causes unnecessary delay. And violates our Fourth Amendment protections. And trains Americans to accept police state tactics. Other than that, I love ’em! The recent bust of airplane-based gun smugglers has TSA supporters’ knickers in a twist. It could have been a bomb! They reckon this scandal simply means we need to tighten security tighter! And gun laws, too! Nonsense. Allow guns on planes and eliminate all gun control laws. Done.
