    This is great but is not something that the states should be required to do. The TSA needs to train it screeners that they cannot stop travelers from recording their actions.

    The TSA has absolute power, so no amount of "training" will matter.

    Americans shouldn't be at the mercy of one institution, with no recourse if the institution fails them. Yes, the TSA needs to "train" its screeners to stop lying about travelers' rights to record their screenings, but Americans should not be forced to depend on the TSA to protect our rights. We need to be allowed to exercise our right to protect ourselves from abuse.

    The TSA has a serious problem. Usually people are "trained" not to lie between the ages of 3 and 7. If it hasn't happened by age 9, it's unlikely the person will become honest later in life. The TSA screeners routinely lie. That's a problem that can only be addressed externally, because apparently this population lacks the internal controls against lying that would qualify them to function without constant monitoring.

    It is what it is. The TSA deliberately sought people with certain traits to become screeners. They wanted people who are comfortable committing boundary violations. They got 'em. Lying goes hand in hand with routine boundary violations.

    I just sent off an e-mail to my state senator regarding this effort by New Hampshire. New Jersey needs to join in this effort.

    TSA has had ample time and opportunity to train TSA screeners. TSA has failed so making this a criminal matter seems a logical progression of events.

    TSA goons know very well photography is not prohibited, however in their quest to intimidate, control and exercise their "authority" they'll continue to pull the power trip of not allowing photography.

    The New Hampshire legislation recognizes the simple fact TSA employees are incorrigible.
