My sister inlaw recently flew down to Georgia to pick up a van. While going through security at the airport, they swabbed her hands....she asked, why are you doing this?
They said that they were checking for gun residue.
WTF is that all about? The scary part is that she is an avid shooter and belongs to the same club I do.
So Im wondering what would have happened if they found residue on her hands?"If anybody can draw on the power, where do we put the meter?" - JP Morgan before pulling Tesla funding

Security experts from across the spectrum will tell you that that's not just unfair and unjust and not the American way, it's also a terrible way to do security," Stanley said.
Start singling out Muslims and Arabs and they might not want to come to the country.

I can see swabbing some towel heads hands, but why a 100 lb. pale Irish girl in her late 40s?"If anybody can draw on the power, where do we put the meter?" - JP Morgan before pulling Tesla funding

Ted Bundy and Jeffrey Dahmer looked like regular guys. Bad guys don't always look like the BOOGIE MAN.Challenge yourself, take the CM test --- Certificate Member since 2004 ---Join RSES ---the HVAC/R training authority ---www.rses.org

When I do work at the Navy Base we have to grab a thing that looks like a big lint roller. It tests for explosive residue.

Muslims have that market cornered along with 99% of all terrorist acts. The TSA is wasting tax dollars money every time they swab a someone like coolwhip's sister and allow any obvious Muslim or Muslim looking person go by without giving them the 3rd degree.

what is a muslim looking person? India is full of Muslims and Hindu's, they all look alike. Malaysia is predominately Muslim , yet has Buddists among others. Yugoslavia has a large Muslim population along with Catholics. See why they look at everyone.
