    I know I'm supposed to kick up my heels with glee whenever a TSA employee gets burned, but this sentence bothers me. It's illegal for a citizen to possess(5th amendment) a weapon (2nd Amendent)? We're getting used to this. We're getting used to our rights melting away "for the common good," but is the common good really being served?

    Property taxes wittle away at our right to own property, making it seem like U.S. Citizens only rent land, home, businesses and other items we imagine we "own." Our firearms are confiscated and never returned over ridiculous pretexts, all "legally," and all "for the common good." Does it really serve the common good to undermine U.S. Citizens' property rights and 2nd amendment rights? I'm not so sure.

    I read recently that the majority of guns the TSA "discovers" :rolleyes: belong to LEOs who forgot to leave them behind when they went to the airport.

    If this is true, then it makes the TSA's "cleverly concealed" gun hype look even sillier than before. It also highlights the basic innocence of the vast majority of the people they "catch."

    It's a joke. None of the weapons found were of nefarious intent. Compared to the weapons successfully smuggled through by the red teams. Or by Jon Corbett (weapon == sewing case)
