Bwhahahahaha!
TSA’s ability to interdict bombs and weapons was the subject of a scathing IG report six months ago. TSA’s screening failed to detect the ersatz bombs and weapons in 67 out of 70 cases (95%). I’m sure it would have been higher if the testers had put scissors, nail files and nail clippers into their carry-on bags as that seems to be what TSA does best.

“…also indicate that “more people are bringing guns on trips because they think they need to have a gun with them 24/7.”
This just might have something to do with travelers concerned about crime in their destination cities and/or people waking up to the fact that the police cannot protect them so they have to protect themselves.

Disband TSA, Close DHS, Re-elect no one.
