The New York Times reported on Friday the startling trend of Transportation Security Agency agents finding more and more guns in airline passengers’ carry-on luggage. They’re on pace to have unpacked 1500 guns by the end of the year, a 75% increase since 2010. Even more chilling is what the Agency suspects is behind the rise. The guns aren’t being carried by would-be terrorists but, frighteningly, by garden variety, Whopper-loving, all-American nitwits.
Yes, in yet another sign of the Springfieldization of the USA, heat-packing citizen morons are just plum forgettin’ about the semi-automatic weapons in their roll-aboards. And I’m being generous by calling these boneheads “morons,” “nitwits,” and “boneheads,” because of the 47 guns the TSA found in carry-on luggage during the week ending Sept. 20, 81% were loaded and 13% had a round in the chamber, ready at a moment’s notice to help open a pesky can of Diet Sierra Mist.
