In Turks & Caicos:

Americans detained & charged due to ammunition "accidentally" left their travel bags - found when they were in Turks & Caicos.

HOW did they leave USA with them undetected?!

Really make you feel secure in US airports, huh? (NOT!)

What are the TSA agents doing?

DJ: I'm not a fan of TSA and think it is mostly theater, but note that TSA found over 6000 guns at airport security checks last year -- and over 90% of them were loaded.

There are a lot of stupid gun owners out there. So, TSA appears to be doing something, at least... Finding the idiots.

On a non-RE forum I chatted with a couple people that used to work for TSA.

It was common for Americans to carry firearms everywhere they went for a lot longer than it has been disallowed. Itís too bad all the namby pamby libtards like you have forgotten your history and ruined it for the rest of us. --174.240.xxx.xxx

Stupid gunowners? John, I guarantee you you could go out to my truck right now and find a shell laying on the floor or on the dash or dig through one of my coats and find one.

They're getting better! In a recent undercover test, TSA failed to detect 50% of guns and explosives. A couple of years ago it was 95%. --107.141.xx.xxx

Sorry, NE, but it has not been common to carry guns in the majority of foreign countries where it is common for it to have been illegal for a very long time. Their country, their rules, and your constitutional rights do not apply as soon as you step over the border and out of the USA. --76.178.xxx.xxx

It's legal to fly with ammo in checked luggage.

Really dumb of them to have it when flying internationally--not up to security to take care of you where you land.

Word of advice: If you are driving into Canada, make sure that you don't have any ammo undeclared. They take it pretty serious. I always go thru my vehicle really well before traveling across the border now. Got detained once many years ago for a piece of medical equipment not declared ( just for a little bit- but it made me be extra vigilant now) --76.138.xxx.xxx

Zero: unfortunately, I do believe it.

I used to work security and was very frustrated at the abysmally low level of being serious/vigilant among other officers.Scary really.

Everywhere, Even in Federal buildings

Nobody liked me because I actually did my job.

Treated me badly until I had enough & finally left.

Never looked back or regretted it.

I just HATE working in a situation like that --68.229.xxx.xxx

Did the article say that they left the US with them undetected? They may have flown there a week ago without the ammo and were now boarding with ammo. --73.2.xx.xx

NE: There is a HUGE difference between finding a shell on the floor of your pickup -- and leaving some in your bag for an international flight.

If you can't see the difference, then I'm certainly not "tard" here...

I bought a house in another town (county) for my kids while they went to college. I had to go to the county building to pay taxes or something.

I walked in as I do at my county building and saw a metal detector. I asked the officer why it was there. Just always is. I went back, took off my not allowed equipment and walked back. It was a long walk by the way. Then I get there and beep.

Oh crap, I forgot to remove the spare ammo I had. I told him, he asked if I was LEO. Nope, just a concerned citizen.

Walked back to the truck yet again and then went in to do my business.

One reason I am happy I sold that place. --107.147.xx.xx

NE: So, what about the 6000+ that went to the airport last year with a LOADED GUN in their bag? Sorry, but those people are indeed idiots. We're not talking about accidentally missing some ammo in a bag that you use for other things. We're talking about walking into an airport to board a plane with a loaded gun in your bag.

If you can't see that most of those people are dumb, then I don't see the point in talking about it any more.

Why are they stupid? Maybe theyíre Stupid rules in the first place made to appease stupid people, all while diminishing the freedom of others. I should be able to travel with a fully loaded AR to a country that welcomes it, as long as the safety is on and itís not pointed at anyone. Why? Because Iím not a threat. Just because youíre scared doesnít make me a threat. Kind of like the scamdemic, just because youíre scared doesnít mean Iím a threat.

There is going to be a vote by the school board here as to whether or not to allow teachers to carry guns in school. Now, honestly, that is scary. Not because of the gun carrying, but because that is the solution they have come up with for a much more serious problem. --76.129.xxx.xx

6x6, perhaps if there were armed teachers in the first place, there wouldnít be so many mass shooting. 95 billion dollars to Ukraine, but not a dime to arm guards at our own schools. Stick by what I say, our society has become a joke. Clown planet. --24.152.xxx.xx

Anyone who has any serious security experience will tell you that checkpoints like the TSA security screening at the airport are good as a deterrent and moderate to poor in detection. In most security analysis models the credit given for probability of detection in screening is around 25%, that's why in places that security is critical you end up going through 3-4 layers of security screening to get to a higher probability of detection. --209.205.xxx.xx

NE, I understand what you are saying, however, back when I went to school we didn't need armed teachers and it would have never entered anyone's mind that there would ever be the need. That said, they did have paddles. --76.129.xxx.xx

NE: They are stupid because everyone knows that you can't take a loaded gun on a plane. Period. I don't care if you WISH that were different because of your FREEDUMBS, it doesn't change what every intelligent American should already know: we aren't allowed to take a loaded gun on an airplane any more. Duh.

Therefore, yes, those 6000+ people are idiots for showing up at the airport with their loaded guns. They are fools.

Thatís the 6,000 they found. Wonder how many they didnít. Johnny, just because thereís a rule, doesnít make it right. As a landlord you at a minimum should know that. We talk about the absurdity of rules here all the time. Now I know you like the taste of government boot leather and comply no matter what, but I donít and that forces me to question a lot of things.

Like I said before, just because youíre panicked with fear, doesnít mean Iím a threat. Just like rent control or ESAís or lead paint or permits or anything else.

Ps: box cutters were used on 9/11, not guns. At least thatís what they told us. Just saying. --174.249.xx.xx

The greatest threat to safety of this country is certainly not the man who has been around firearms his whole life who may sit armed next to you on an airplane. Certainly not the man with a few rounds of ammo and no way to fire them. (Go fund me is #freeryanwatson. The real threat is the persons perspective that governs the train thought that comes out of the people like you. The ones who foolishly call freedom, dumb. That is the true enemy of traditional America. --174.249.xx.xx

How do I KNOW you are not a threat NE? Because YOU SAY so?

When I was a kid,I never heard of a school being shot up,..anywhere. Now its almost weekly despite in many school systems that have done prevented measures add that to ones in big crowds and even an occasional church.

You often hear how "normal" This shooter person was by his friends and neighbors.

I remember the All in the family segment when Archie tried to bring forward the idea that every one on a plane should be issued a gun,..to protect a bad gun with a gun.

You can say here that you have never been a problem or a threat,..well,.you can say that,but I don't really know that.

Yes there are good rules and laws and bad one but I also remember when smoking was allowed on a plane,.then they passed a rule that there was a smoking isle and a non smoking isle 2-3 feet away,..very logical,..and for sure that worked well as that smoked stayed on that side,. plus you are at 35,000 feet with little fires in an enclosed area with long time to land somewhere.

What's the old saying your right to swing your fist ends where another man's nose begins.
