    Saw this guy on the news last night and forgot to look it up, but they replayed it tonight.

    Sounds a lot like profiling.

    "2nd Amendment enthusiasts"? What a weird way to label us. Sounds more like we are Constitutional history majors or something.

    Let's try, lawfully armed citizens, m'kay?

    It's a pretty good improvement over "Gun nut".

    Like it's a "dirty" thing to enjoy the liberty's observed in our nation's Constitution. Whenever you speak are you a "First amendment enthusiast?". LOL

    I loved it when Joyce Oscar said, "Are we just stupid?".

    She hit the nail on the head with this rather factual opinion piece.

    Hey, who do we write to find out about getting our behind the scenes tours?

    I sent the reporter and email asking if she has ever sat down with a gun owner that carries and had a interview that was not a hit piece.

    I don't see her as the problem here. If anything she gave us a direct quote(instead of a "he said") from the guy you should be contacting.

    I guess if they are concentrating on having "eyes on me", then they are not focused on doing their job. :shock:

    All i have to say is thank God these folks are tasked with providing security.

    The Minneapolis-St. Paul area has the largest Somali population in the US. And it's well known as a hotbed for muslim radicalization. So they get butt-hurt over racial profiling and TSA gives them a tour of sensitive areas of the airport to assuage said butt-hurt? And even ask their opinions on how to make it "better?" Really? Hey, TSA. Here's a suggestion: Just give them the building keys.

    John Kelly needs to clean house at TSA and the whole Homeland Security bureaucratic boondoggle.

    2nd Amendment enthusiast? :popcorn:

    Is a religious person or a reporter a 1st Amendment enthusiast?

    Is a believer in due process a 4th Amendment enthusiast?

    Is a believer in states' rights a 10th Amendment enthusiast?

    “If 2A enthusiasts are at the airport and they’re exhibiting that, we will ha...


    Well once we started embracing "gun nut" it started to be less derogatory.

    More women are carrying now, so the antis have a hard time saying we are only carrying to compensate for our masculinity.

    Now it's 2A enthusiast I suppose.

    I'm particularly fond of ammosexual.

    I don't understand the comment at all. Are they saying that they will be watching open carriers? Is that what they mean by 2A enthusiasts? If someone is CC'ing, there is nothing to observe. As far as I can see, this is just more nonsensical lip service intended to make ignorant people feel safe. Is the shooter at the FL airport the 2A enthusiast because he flew with a firearm? Is that who they are going to be watching? I thought I read something just yesterday that had the FBI claiming that the shoot in FL flew specifically there because the whole airport was a gun free zone.

    The video is out now.

    Which was Esteban Santiago Aashiq Hamad doing, concealing or carrying openly? Would they have been watching him or the guy carrying openly coming to baggage claim to pick up his wife?
