I'm not looking to "harass" conservatives, (besides you are a libertarian not a conservative) . I am only asking the question, if every one at LAX was carrying a gun this morning, as has been suggested here, this nut wouldn't have been able to get off a shot before he was dropped. Do you agree? Or does that sound "silly " to you as well?
If California didn't have those "idiotic gun laws" how could thus scene at LAX, this morning, been different?

Update: They have ID him. The Police tried to get to him before he made the attack since he was on a suicide mission.
TSA agent killed in LAX shooting, suspect ID'd.....
The FBI has identified the suspect as 23-year-old Paul Ciancia. According to public records obtained by Yahoo News, Ciancia has a known address in Pennsville, N.J., about 15 miles from Wilmington, Del.
The AP said Ciancia had contacted his brother by text message on Friday saying he was considering suicide. Ciancia's father then reached out to law enforcement officials in Los Angeles who reportedly made an unsuccessful attempt to make contact with Ciancia before the shooting.
Ciancia entered the airport wearing fatigues and carrying a bag containing a handwritten note that said he "wanted to kill TSA and pigs," an official, who was briefed on the investigation and requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly, told the AP
The Federal Aviation Administration announced a full ground stop until the incident has been officially resolved. Executive Director of Los Angeles World Airports Gina Marie Lindsey said in a Friday afternoon press conference that the ground stop is set to be removed at 4:00pm PST.
Access to the airport has been temporarily shutdown on Century Boulevard, the main road leading into LAX. In addition, all flights are reportedly delayed......snip~

Hence my questions before about the Media. Naturally Obama stated he was keeping an eye out on the situation. (not like he would have more important things to keep an eye out on.....huh? But now a gun issue, with a semi Automatic, he is on the ball.) Now you can understand the MS media talking about how this guy was Anti Government.
Do you think the MS Media was hoping this guy would be a Tea partier.....they (the Media) reported Automatic Weapon at least 50 times, saying it on TV and over the Air.
MSDNC and its crew really went to town over this. Even embellishing about how many planes were sitting there with their Cockpit Doors open and Crews possibly being open to attack. Someone reported like 39 Planes. Do you think the gun man could have got to all of them like the MSDNC Democratic Underground/Progressive/Hack/ Chris Hayes and his Buddies were trying to allude to?
Oh yeah.....an official commented who was briefed on the incident and was giving the story. But as usual they requested anonymity as THEY WERENT AUTHORIZED TO SPEAK UPON the matter. Yet here they are speaking and doing a whole lot of talking. Do you think they have any Right to Anonymity?

What worries me is that I will be travelling with my two little girls. The idea of a stampede and losing one of them scares the **** out of me.
Hate to hear such things happening,
Best wishes to all those affected.
