    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    No. I refuse to give up any more liberties because of some asshole with a ****ed up "cause".

    Which kills more people, backpacks or guns? My money is on the guns.

    The right to keep and bear arms is clearly spelled out in the constitution whereas the right to carry a backpack is never mentioned but the anti gun pro backpack crowd says you can have my backpack when you pry it from my cold dead fingers but please take those damn guns. I am also sick to death of hearing the oft repeated catch phrase, 'if we give up XYZ the terrorist win". BS, the terrorist win when they kill and maim Americans. Do burglars win when you install a deadbolt to make it harder for them to break into your house? Did Japan win after they bombed Pearl harbor and America changed its way of life to win that war? I am proud to be in the minority on this subject. I refuse to be a sheep and this is why I call myself an independent, I will not engage in this group think crap. GFY.
    The right not to have your backpack searched or confiscated is clearly written in the constitution, too. Funny, how you didn't know that.

    Fourth Amendment: The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    Ban backpacks from public events?

    Why not large purses?

    Baggie jeans?

    Baggie coats?

    Motorized wheelchairs?

    All these 'things' could conceivably conceal explosives.


    Or, we can act reasonable and realize that it is impossible to have 100% safety during public events.

    If some nut wants to kill people badly enough and has some resourcefulness - they are probably going to do it.


    You can either restrict people's rights and freedoms - or suck it up and live life.

    I choose the latter.

    If you don't allow them in public events there is no pack to search.

    Backpacks don't kill people, bombs do.

    I know you are trying to be cute and sarcastic but really guns don't kill people bullets do. It is very difficult to insert a bullet into your heart manually.
