TSA seems to take quite a while and is so bad at detecting weapons.
I accidentally brought a small pocketknife on board a plane without even realizing it. It wasn’t until I went through airport security AGAIN to get home did they finally detect it. If I was a criminal with evil intents, Delta flight 3806 would be dead.
And I’m not the only one, TSA failed to detect weapons 95% of the time.

TSA also fails to cover up loopholes that could be used one day. I have found many loopholes that could be used… but TSA doesn’t really seem to address these loopholes until AFTER an attack.
