and what would a person do with a gun on board? The cockpit door is bulletproof now. The Capt. would have that plane on the ground as soon as he got wind of a cabin disturbance.

Guns don't take down planes, people with box cutters do.

TSA loves to boast about finding "prohibited items" yet none of them could really do any harm.

TSA is an excuse to invade the privacy of Americans. It needs to be defunded and make airlines accountable for safety.

It served the purpose GWB wanted. To give the flying public a false sense of security immediately following 9/11. Now, ten years and $$$$$$$$$Billions of dollars later, it serves no purpose.

You can travel with your weapon in your checked bags as long as they are declared and unloaded. Now if these are either loaded or undeclared the owner is in a tad bit of trouble. The fine ain't cheap either.
