OMG Guns on Planes!! Well, Almost…

Did you hear? Only quick thinking by unionized government drones selfless public servants of the TSA have prevented absolute Armageddon in the sky!

Channel 9 learned at least 31 people have tried to bring a gun through Charlotte-Douglas Airport since the beginning of 2011.

The TSA stepped in before those people could step through.

Oh, thank God for the TSA!

I know that many of you don’t click through the links, but you owe it to yourself to go to this one. They have a video up you have to watch. The text version of the story cannot capture the breathlessness of this video. The palpable fear of what is basically a non-story is off the scale. There were SIX GUNS SEIZED AT CHARLOTTE AIRPORT LAST MONTH!!! 

You’d think they were trying to drown raped babies in Alar. You see, the District Attorney isn’t “prosecuting” the people caught with guns at the security checkpoints. They are only socking them with “multi-thousand dollar fines,” but apparently reporter Scott McFarlane wants them perp-walked to the Federal lockup.

There is one shining moment where reason and sanity shines through. The reporter manages to track down a US House Representative, Paul Broun of Georgia’s 10th District and a foe of the TSA, and Broun delivers the best line ever.

“Thing is, a law-abiding citizen bringing a handgun on an airplane is not a danger,” Rep. Paul Broun said. “A terrorist with a handgun or a bomb is. We’ve gotta start focusing on the terrorists.” 

Who wants to bet that the reporter couldn’t see the sense in that statement?

Archie Bunker had it right

 

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. In the land of the disarmed, the guy with the box cutter flies your plane into a building.
