If you are so for the TSA, why just limit to airport and plane? Why not mall, casino, etc. Don't they have more people.

How many people can a plane house? I am sure if someone want to do maximum casualty, a mall or a busy intersection like time square will do a lot more casualty.

It take courage or someone insane to kill another human being. It take more courage to kill yourself. Unless you must and have no other choice, people will not kill themselves unlike they has psychological problem. When you factor this in and you wonder why anyone would do something like this.

@RM99
You are in a gun show, of course people are flashing their guns. You act like if guns are allow, everyone would be flashing it. I know it is not the case. There are only a small percentage of people own gun flash it. Most people conceal them.

If you are so anti people carrying gun in an open area, do you accept military/police walking around in the city with rifle? If you say they are the law enforcer, they can do that, but why can citizenship allow to protect themselves?

I recently took a plane trip and was neither fondled nor xrayed. Sure, it was disappointing, but to know that I may never have the opportunity again is quite disheartening. Add to the list of reasons to hate Texas I guess, what else can you do about it? Just one man's opinion.

But when they are flashing it at you ... numbers are superfluous ... you gotta understand this ain't New York City... it wasn't that long ago that it was legal to drive around Texas drinking beer as long as you weren't already drunk... I'm a gun nut ... but ... at least I have been professionally trained to use them...

It bothers me when I am at a Gun Show and groups of young men indigenous to the neighborhood wearing the same color bandana's are buying dozens of Raven 9mm's .. it bothers me when I see people carrying a loaded firearm and they can't tell you if the safety is on or off , they don't own a cleaning kit and they wonder why I think they should... it bothers me when I read that another child has taken a loaded gun to school ....

In Houston the Police picked up a 12 year old because he was renting guns to the kids at his middle school...


Yes, if everyone was responsible and trustworthy you would have a valid point ... but life don't work that way...

Nawww... look at history... things have been worse... the Black Death is estimated to have killed 30% – 60% of Europe's population, reducing the world's population from an estimated 450 million to between 350 and 375 million in 1400.


Feel better?

If laws and regulations is the way to go, then yes, you have a valid point, but you are only stripping the right to protect themselves from the law abide citizens. Those who want a gun can always get a gun regulate what laws or regulations put in place.

There are irresponsible people everywhere, in all age group. This is human nature.

It hurt me even more when a gun man run into the no gun school zone, and the no gun zone sign didn't stop him or her.

To get a drivers license... they make you pass a written test and driving test ...

Marriage and guns you only have to fill out a form...

Planes, trains and automobiles

I can tell you that I would rather be in times square when a bomb goes off then in an airplane. The chances of survival I think are significantly better.

We are living in magnificant times! I think people just don't understand how the world works or how it has worked, so they take their own perspective and start to see all the 'issues' and feel ganged up on and overwhelmed.

Quality of life gets better every single day. However, there may be a 50% retracement at some point in the future. If that happens during our lifetimes, then, well, I guess a little bit of bad timing.
