Default TSA opppps

This is boggie, found out the TSA does not like 40 cal clips in your carry on
Grabbed a leather carry on had not used in a couple of years, threw my stuff in in a hurry out the door.

Got pulled at check point, gee wonder what's up? Guess I had a clip inside with one round hollow point now I feel like a fugitive.

Glad the Glock was not there! Had to have a conversation with the local sheriff
And then boarded, I quess if it happens again there could be a fine
Have a nice day, NSA kind of like NASA but one less "A"

So how is 1 hollow point in a magazine a threat when there is no gun anywhere to be seen?

I understand if they take the 1 round, but if they confiscated my Glock mag I'd be a little more than perturbed. Then again I am not a fan of the TSA and think they are just an illusion of safety, more of a drama play to placate the sheep into believing that something is being done. But I'm also the guy who, because of my beard and dark curly hair, got pulled out of line for EVERY FLIGHT for a couple of years for additional security checks after 9-11 ... doesn't seem to be an issue now that my hair has turned mostly grey. But my daughter, much younger then, would ask my wife, where are they taking daddy?

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion:
the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases,
while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage
of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."

You know that old saying ;"Out law guns and only criminals will have guns"? Well it could be: Outlaw guns and only Texans will have guns.
At our morning safety meetings, held 7 days a week, we regularly reminded our entire workforce about this TSA stuff. even though we were working close to the real North Pole,(800 miles away), in Alaska, a significant percentage, like 1/3, was from Texas and regularly had similar stories. Just wearing clothes when you had been at the range would have enough Gunpowder Residue to set off the sniffers used by TSA. We had a guy that did custom loading. He was always bringing up custom rounds, some for our security guys. Eventually, shortly after 9/11 they advised him that he better not bring up any more ammo.
