On a serious note, I would have thought that airports would be pretty safe in terms of security against gunmen. Even in the UK there are armed police everywhere when it comes to airports.

they don't know if he got through security yet

I hope that everyone is okay, except for the perp.

 

It's inevitable that stuff like this happens.  

Is there any information on the perp? Motivation? (I would assume anger at the TSA for touching him/her/it/them "inappropriately" ha. )

Can't find any info on the suspect yet. I imagine it will be a while before any comes out.

I would assume he hadn't, as that's exactly what security is designed to prevent. It would obviously be much more serious if he had.

Lol USA once again trying to pretend its terrorism so theres a reason to collect data. I cant believe people fall for it. They get someone to do the crime, everyone gets scared and then people let the government control everyone.

There is no implication that this was a terrorist attack, let alone part of a government conspiracy to control people. The reality is that there are a lot of lunatics in the US and it's easy for them to get hold of firearms. It's perfectly understandable that people object to gun restrictions but it's ridiculous to suggest that the movement to restrict guns is predicated on a massive conspiracy, especially when nobody knows what actually occurred here.

I read an unconfirmed report that the shooter was a disgruntled Ex-TSA agent.

You are naive if you think that your government or other do not collect information on their people.

Sad but I wouldn't be surprised if this were the case.

It is, but that particular airport is VERY VERY crowded constantly and the gunman hadn't made it through the security checkpoint it looks like.  There is no security at the entrance, just the TSA prior to the boarding terminals because there is more concern about a "bad guy" getting on a plane than anything else.

 

Someone bent on shooting up a place could do a lot of damage in that crowd.  But that's the case at any shopping mall as well.

This story just reminds me of how I am so stoked about this new COD Ghosts game.
