New video from the nation’s airports showing a woman who was trying to get from Point A to Point B. In between, the federal government:
Here’s the sad fact. If tomorrow, Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood joined Big Sis Janet Napolitano in announcing the dissolution of the Transportation Security Administration and airports across the United States were responsible for their own security, there would be much rejoicing.
However, what you wouldn’t see announced, but would be implemented, would be a system of regulations that required private security at airports to essentially be the same as the TSA.
They would not simply allow every airport to decide its own policy.
Personally, if the free market were allowed to dictate, I would choose to fly on the airline that handed out Tasers when they checked your boarding passes. Or Sig Sauers with rubber bullets.
An armed airplane is a polite airplane.
