    Maybe we should all be more worried about here:

    From A Concerned Pilot - Transterrestrial Musings

    I'm adding this link to another source: Customs and Border Protection Justifies Ramp Check

    about Long Beach case.

    Homeland Security needs to go.

    Or at least it needs to be reigned in by the courts. At least some of you in the private aviation club are lawyers and the first thing that ought to be done is file lawsuits to stop this sort of abuse.

    By the way BATF has been carrying on like this for years. This isn't new and someone needs to put a stop to this sort of nonsense before another Wacoesque incident happens. This time perchance at an airport.

    Something tells me you wouldn't have objected to such restrictions in late September 2001.
