Could it be because most people associate "Going TSA" with a sex crime?

I thought this was going to be about a love triangle between the 2 agents and a 6yr old handicap boy!!

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
Paying for welfare is slavery.
Seems like school shootings and other public shootings have really stepped up the past few weeks. Getting sick of it.

Many people use a "bullet button". I think there was something about "easily detachable" mags not being legal, but that was probably changed.

Either way, I can't believe a criminal would break the law like that. According to CNN he had enough ammo to take out the whole terminal. A different source said he had 2 mags and a total of 100 unspent rounds... I would imagine that on any given day there are more than 100 people in the terminal. Plus he was only looking for TSA agents, not "civilians".

If you ask me, it was probably "justifiable homicide" considering the crimes the TSA commits on a daily basis

AFAIK people are still using the bullet button method out there. Anything else is illegal unless it was owned (and registered) before the cutoff.
The law? The law is a human institution...
Quote:Few clues to accused airport killer

Paul Ciancia didn't talk much.

High school classmates described him as a quiet kid who sat by himself at lunch.

He turned down invitations to school dances and the wrestling team. He played trumpet in the school band but wasn't close with the band members.

A classmate said Ciancia was the only member of Salesianum School's Class of 2008 who did not go on to college. He graduated from the Wilmington prep school as much of a mystery to other students as he was when he entered.

On Saturday, former classmates, neighbors, and residents of the South Jersey town where Ciancia grew up said they were struggling to reconcile memories of that quiet, solitary boy with the crime he is accused of: the Friday shooting rampage at Los Angeles International Airport that left a Transportation Security Administration agent dead and five people wounded, including Ciancia.

The Ciancias are a well-known family in a small town – Pennsville, Salem County, population 13,409. Ciancia's father, Paul Sr., runs an auto-repair shop and is prominent in his community, residents said.

Ciancia, 23, had few hobbies and outside interests, they said: Besides playing in the school band, he rode motorbikes or ATVs.

According to several accounts, his mother died from multiple sclerosis a year after his high school graduation, and he seemed deeply affected by her prolonged illness and death.

Ciancia kept to himself, Salesianum classmate Joseph Conti said, and he had few friends.

At school, Conti said, it was understood that Paul would join the family business instead of going to college.

Conti said he and Ciancia had several classes together - they sat next to each other because their last names were close in the alphabet.

He said Ciancia was mostly silent - except to let slip an occasional snarky comment about a teacher.

"But I've seen him smile and laugh before," said Conti, who is in law school.

Ciancia "never had a group," Conti said. He said band members would ask Ciancia to hang out from time to time but the trumpet player turned down their invitations. "He never was interested in any of that," Conti said.

After working in his father's repair shop for a time, Ciancia went to Florida. He graduated from the Motorcycle Mechanic Institute in Orlando in December 2011, a spokeswoman for the company that runs the school told the Associated Press.

In 2012, he went to Los Angeles, hoping for work as a motorcycle mechanic, the AP said.

A man who roomed with him in the Los Angeles area told ABC News that Ciancia had planned to return to New Jersey to spend the holidays with his family and "make amends with family problems."

On Friday, his family called the Pennsville Police Department, worried: Ciancia, they said, had sent a text message to his younger brother indicating he might harm himself.

Pennsville Police Chief Allen Cummings, a longtime family friend, called Los Angeles police, who drove to Ciancia's apartment to check on him.

By then, it was too late.

A federal prosecutor describing the murder charge filed against Ciancia on Saturday told reporters an assault rifle was used in the shootings. Ciancia was struck four times by police gunfire at LAX. He was reported to be in critical condition Saturday.

When searched, Ciancia had five 30-round magazines and "hundreds of rounds in 20-round boxes," a law enforcement official told the AP.

Investigators were still trying to determine a motive for the shootings. A federal law enforcement official told the Los Angeles Times a note found with Ciancia contained a rant against the government and the phrase "kill TSA."

Duh. He wanted to kill TSA. A lot of people don't like TSA. OK, maybe not enough to go on a shooting spree, but no love lost nonetheless. Wink
