TSA misses loaded gun in bag at LAX
Other than the fact that the gun's owner was too retarded to unload the gun & pack it securely, why am I not bothered by this?
OK, I am really confused! I thought TSA screened checked as well as carry-on baggage...right? Wrong? Huh? What about the story about the woman who discovered a "pervy note from the TSA" in her baggage that was checked? Wasn't the note written on a TSA inspection form?
They do, but a gun (properly unloaded & packed) in checked luggage isn't a threat to anything.
They haven't said if the chamber was loaded, so it's entirely possible that the gun was "safe".
Of course. Whenever the TSA's monkeys screw up, the TSA announces that whatever was missed was not a threat (knife in carry-on) or not their responsibility (gun in checked baggage) or even that it might have been someone else's screw-up (pervy note inserted into someone's checked baggage on TSA stationery.)
It is, however, no surprise, since the TSA's very existence is predicated by the abdication of personal responsibility.
Personal responsibility - isn't that a term Ron has been using lately?
I think that he also claims that since TSOs are "Federal Officers" they are exempt...or some-such nonsense as that.
Which is even funnier as there have been several reported instances of LEOs threatening TSClerks with arrest for impersonation when TSClerks claimed to be "federal officers."
Threatened with arrest? Oh, there’s been several Isolated Incidents™ this year alone where they've actually been charged:
TSA officer charged with impersonating police officer during Roselle Park traffic stop, March 07, 2011
TSA Agent Cited for Flashing His Badge on the Highway, Jul 27th 2011
They are very good at finding sex toys however.
