The "shoes off" and the "no liquids" is a brain-dead attempt to re-assure Americans that the government is taking safety seriously. Yet, when a Surgeon General says that guns are a public safety issue, Americans are outraged.
Saying that we dont need guns because we have police is just ridiculous. The police cant be everywhere at once and are almost never around when a violent crime is committed. Just like having fire extinguishers because firemen are not always around, we should have guns for protection when the police arent around. - Urgent - Stop Gun Control
