with a major over reaction and probably an expensive one at that. Maybe we need more TSA for the private pilots and small planes? You can't write and pass laws for every possble nutcase incident. Maybe we could declare a health care and education emergency and focus on those issues with the same vigor this will enjoy? Now that would be something, eh?

Seems to me it is impossible to protect anything.

The guy probably filled the small plane full of topped out gas cans to the maximum weight the plane would lift. How mny thousands of small planes like that in the country?

What prevents the use of other types of vehicles from being used as fireballs?

Anyone can figure this out and execute an attack.

Maybe we need to start to treat ALL people with due respect.
