    Some people would rather be horribly violated than face low probability events.

    Some of those same folks don't fly often enough to know what a pain in the ass airport security is as it is.

    I favor a security system that relies on the decision of the Airport/Airline without government backing

    You mean like in some cases no security at all.

    You do know we are not talking about some cab/bus company where if you don't like one you can always go with the down street.

    We are talking about airports that takes sometimes years to plan and build and take up square miles of land.

    We are talking about places where flying bombs take off every minute and fly over dense population centers.

    and you want to leave security systems to company like SouthWest Air which is nothing more than a flying bus company.

    I'm of the belief that 9/11 could have been very easily prevented had they just not allowed knives on planes. I don't think we need all that much more than not allowing people to get on planes with weapons.

    You can change airports its just more difficult

    We are talking about airports that takes sometimes years to plan and build and take up square miles of land.
    Irrevelant to what I support

    We are talking about places where flying bombs take off every minute and fly over dense population centers.
    Just like how cars and other vehicles that can explode drive all over the place?

    and you want to leave security systems to company like SouthWest Air which is nothing more than a flying bus company.
    Yes, yes I do, if they are put in charge of their own security then they can set their own security polices. Then the market decides on which airports people feel safer on.

    Not possible. For the simple fact that our Federal Government is responsible for all border crossings not only of national borders but also of state borders. They have had that task since the founding of the US.

    The harder it is for people to get weapons into a place, the more power weapons give to people who manage to smuggle them in somehow. Put a couple of armed agents on every flight and the problem disappears entirely.

    Certainly that would work if our economy was in better shape and if the government cared but unfortunately neither of those true. So if you know any ideas on how to get enough money legally to put armed guards on every flight please do share.

    What are a couple of armed agents going to do against 5-10 terrorists? Or even just a couple who find out who the agents will be / look like before they get on the flight? Armed agents are not that useful. What needs to be done instead is to STOP telling people to not do anything when some dirtbag is threatening their lives or the lives of others around them. Seriously that has got to be among the WORST things that "experts" have "trained" people to do. Most civilians have been trained to be cowards imo. Personally if I ran an airport I would hand every adult passenger a gun with one bullet in it at the door of the plane and collect that gun back at the end of the flight. I'd like to see a group of terrorists hijack those planes.
