Guns on Planes- An Idea Whose Time Has Come

Despite the TSA’s efforts to disarm peaceful air travelers, a significant number of these traveling individuals insist on arming themselves when flying. AP reports:

In the first six months of this year, Transportation Security Administration screeners found 894 guns on passengers or in their carry-on bags, a 30% increase over the same period last year.

And the amount of guns found last year was up 17% from the year before. This seems to indicate a steadily increasing trend. Is this a sign of a growing resistance movement to being disarmed by the TSA or are these thugs just becoming more efficient at their “duties?”

TSA doesn't believe these gun-toting passengers are terrorists, but the agency can't explain why so many passengers try to board planes with guns…

"We don't analyze the behavioral traits of people who carry weapons. We're looking for terrorists. But sometimes you have to scratch your head and say, 'Why?'"

Well, only a conditioned slave would have to ask, “Why?” It’s a perfectly natural inclination for one to protect himself and be personally responsible for that protection. Only those indoctrinated to believe otherwise (and have yet to awaken) question such an action.

Of the 12 airports with the most guns last year, five are in Texas: Dallas-Fort Worth International, 80 guns [We‘re number 1!….]; George Bush Intercontinental in Houston, 52; Dallas Love Field […and Number 3!], 37; William P. Hobby in Houston, 35, and Austin-Bergstrom International, 33. Hartsfield-Jackson in Atlanta had the most for any airport, at 96. Others include Phoenix Sky Harbor, 54; Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International in Florida, 42; Denver International, 39; Seattle-Tacoma International, 37; Orlando International Airport in Florida, 36, and Tampa International in Florida, 33.

I believe we can make the following conclusions:

1) Yes, some just forget. Many folks, to their credit, see carrying a firearm as natural and second nature as carrying a wallet or a pen. But I seriously doubt this can explain this large a number of “violations.”

2) More likely, a lot of these people have gotten through security just fine with a weapon in the past, so therefore try to do so again.

3) And from this speculation it would follow that a significant number of firearms are making it on flights, despite the efforts of TSA thugs.

4)This means that TSA is not detecting scores of firearms packed by passengers.

5) Yet, despite all these firearms passing through security, not a single incidence of a passenger brandishing a firearm on a flight has yet to be recorded, that I’m aware of.

Therefore, hoplophobes would seem to be incorrect by hysterically claiming that allowing passengers to carry their personal firearms on flights would lead to disaster.

I’m still waiting.
