    Texas TSA Pat Down Ban May Be Back

    Texas TSA pat down ban may be back.

    Article Link

    exas lawmakers may reconsider a bill to outlaw controversial airport pat-downs, the sponsor of legislation that was shelved recently said this week.

    Texas state Rep. David Simpson (R) said that Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst reportedly asked Gov. Rick Perry to include the measure in a special session of the Texas legislature. Dewhurst reported asked lawmakers to withdraw the bill when federal officials threatened to cancel flights to Texas if it passed.

    But he has since had a change of heart, Simpson told fans on his Facebook page.

    Nice try Texas but this won't hold up. The Feds will just shut down the Airports and this will end over night.

    Safety comes first for now anyway.

    TSA is bullsh!t it's time to defund it and or get rid of it totally and the main reason would be it's unconstitutional.

    Texas could arrest any Federal agent who attempts to shut down the airport or even the sheriff could, it's better to live free with risk than to live under a tyranny without any risk so we may think.

    Wouldn't that require that the measures we have now are, I dunno, actually PROVEN to work?

    I think there is a difference between having measures that work, and are necessary, and clinging on to measures that are unproven out of a fear driven perception of necessity?

    And the fed's attempt to interfere will defiantly start a ****storm - I think that is partially the whole idea, they introduce the bill again, show some balls, have the feds interfere and fight it all the way to the highest of courts.
