    The solicitation:
    As picked up in InfoWars, solicitation by TSA, for existing range within 20mi of LaGuardia.

    THIS ends my airport travel once and for all.

    Maybe they just want to be able to fly people in from the eastern U.S. for training, hence the proximity to LaGuardia.

    Generally, long-haul flights are restricted from LaGuardia, short-haul flights are discourage from JFK.

    On the other hand, let them arm TSA. The body count will quickly put an end to all the nonsense.

    The email address of one of the procurement officers is "@secureskies.net". This domain involves the FFDO (Federal Flight Deck Officer) program, i.e. armed pilots.

    We want them armed! With a bit of luck maybe they'll use smurves for target practice. :D

    Phew--no armed smurfs.
    Only accounts for one half M rounds though.

    Just a minor point, air marshals are part of TSA and they do shoot.

    Which should be of special concern to mentally ill individuals in jetways ...

    Instead of one Rastafed we'll have hundreds.

    Exactly, and there are some liason positions that are sworn armed officers (such as the AFSD-LEO positions), all of those folks have to qualify and maintain a certain level of proficiency with their assigned weapons - just like other sworn LEOs. I do not have numbers for the amount of armed people in the region, but based on the population rate, and the number of flights in and out, I would venture there is a fairly substantial TSA/DHS LEO contingent in that area, and finding a range they can use within 20 miles is a normal arrangement that many LEO groups make.

    Interesting little article from a survival list site, but came up with a little gem.

    Already covered elsewhere -- it appears to be for FFDO (armed pilot) program.
