Dems Want Harsher Penalties For Guns Found By TSA

From Bearing Arms:

The letter specifically highlighted how Mr Cawthorn, the embattled North Carolina Congressman, was recently cited for carrying a 9mm gun at Charlotte-Douglas Airport, as WSOC9 reported. This was the second time Mr Cawthorn was caught with a gun at an airport, since he tried to bring a gun on his carry-on luggage at Asheville’s regional airport.

“Two incidents in such a short period of time should raise our collective alarm regarding repeat offenses involving a firearm. Accordingly, we urge the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to act decisively to ensure repeat offenders like Rep. Cawthorn face the full extent of TSA’s enforcement actions,” Mr Thompson and Ms Coleman wrote in a letter.

Traveling With Guns

From The Truth About Guns:

My first advice to traveling gun owners is to always be nice. A good attitude goes a surprisingly long way in getting you through problem situations. Do your homework, know the rules for checked baggage (no loaded firearms, ammo in a separate container) , and destination gun laws concerning possession of firearms (i.e., concealed carry no-go zones, magazine limits, etc.) pack well and leave early, check-in early and then…smile. I may know TSA’s rules and regs more than anyone at the airport, but I don’t flaunt it or shove it in their faces.

TSA Fails 75% Of The Time


In the wake of the Russian Metrojet crash and the Paris terror attacks, security while flying in the U.S. is of greater concern than ever. Yet in Atlanta, a man said he accidentally carried a loaded gun onto a commercial flight and the TSA never found it.

The TSA is mostly just security theater to make it seem like people are safe. This is worse than doing nothing because now people have a false sense of security.
