TSA gun polices criticized after airport shooting in Florida

But under a bill filed by state Rep.

A proposal by Sarasota Republican Greg Steube that would allow a licensed gun owner to carry a gun in airports throughout the state is on the agenda for the Florida Legislature when they begin their session in March. "If someone with a gun in the baggage claim area opened fire in the midst of hundreds of people, the life loss probably would have been worse", Wasserman said. They can only be transported in checked baggage. Stopping such attacks, he added, is "reliant upon how quick law enforcement can get there". The bill would still prohibit the carrying of guns through security screening.

Although we don't know the reason behind the attack we know that the shooter is twenty six year old Esteban Santiago an Army Veteran with a history of mental illness dating back to his tour in Iraq. Because in most cases, airlines do not allow non-federal active or any retired law enforcement officers to carry loaded firearms in the passenger compartments of their planes, they have no choice but to place them into checked baggage.

"My heart goes out to the families impacted", he said on Tuesday. Authorities said he walked into an Federal Bureau of Investigation office in November accusing the government of controlling his mind and forcing him to watch Islamic State videos. Either way, he wants gun-free zones in unsecured portions of the airport done away. W. Gregory Steube, and gun-rights proponents said the bill was a public-safety measure meant to increase the number of places where law-abiding gun owners could carry their firearms. "I don't think that should be the law of the state".

Small arms ammunition, including ammunition not exceeding.75 caliber and shotgun shells of any gauge, may be carried in the same hard-sided case as the firearm.

"If second amendment enthusiasts are at the airport and they're exhibiting that, we will have eyes on them at all times... so passengers here should feel safe even if they happen to see that", said airport spokesman Reese McCranie.

Rozin worked as an agent for the Israeli Airport Authority and says security in the US needs to focus on a passenger's mindset, as well as what's in their bag or on their person.

The Florida Senate's Judiciary Committee, which Steube chairs, was going to have a hearing on Senate Bill 140 this week, but a senator could not attend, so this was postponed until the end of January.
