THE ONE WHERE I CAN OPT OUT OF SCREENING AND AM TREATED LIKE A HUMAN, NUMBSKULL. Every. Single. Time.
I live in a state where a law abiding person can carry a gun on them. Nearly everyone carries or has ready access to a knife. I'm not afraid of weapons. As to bombs, a dedicated terrorist will eventually find a way to smuggle a bomb onto a plane no matter how stringent your rules are.
If I had a choice, I would joyfully pick minimal or nonexistent security along with the minuscule chance of being attacked by a terrorist over being felt up and probulated by overpaid, power-hungry perverts. If I had that choice, I'd pick the "dangerous" aircraft in a bloody heartbeat.
