Question For Karen

In Yo, Karen: YOU’RE a “Careless Mistake,” one of the TSA’s insufferable shrews scolds passengers, If you own a firearm, you need to know where it is at all times…”

Steve Stanek responds to this harangue by asking,

… if that applies to air marshals and FBI agents and other “law enforcers” who leave their firearms lying around for anyone to find. For instance:

 In a restroom at the Denver airport; 

 In a restroom at the Houston airport; 

 In a restroom in a California restaurant;

 In a restroom in a Grand Rapids bar; 

 In a restroom at the Newark airport. 

 Steve concludes,

What stands out to me is the hypocrisy. These agents of the government seem not to lose their jobs or get arrested or heavily fined for leaving their firearms lying around for anyone to walk off with, yet they don’t hesitate to punish others.

Leviathan is nothing if not a master of double standards.
