An article with the headline "TSA sees increase in guns over holidays" quotes one of the agency's army of propagandists: "'No one wants to get on their holiday flight and be sitting next to a person packing heat,' [Sari Koshetz] said."
Au contraire. I would very much like to "get on my holiday flight and sit next to a person" able to defend me and everyone else aboard from the terrorists preying on American aviation. Judging from the mail I receive, a great many folks agree.
Naturally but tragically, however, those terrorists disarm us so we cannot fight back when they sexually assault, rob, bully, or even kill us.
