    After the September 11, 2001 bombings of New York, Congress said, “We have got to do something” and created TSA who personnel who feel up passengers and subject passengers to horrendous treatment. A crazy person killed children at a school who did not have an armed uniformed police officer at the school. The crazy guys that do this stuff are smart enough to figure out that they do not want the chance of being shot themselves so they pick out public places like theaters and schools to go shooting innocents. It takes 20 to 30 minutes for police to respond to a crime in progress. Adam Lanza could have been shot to death almost instantly after he started to shoot out the windows of the door in the New Town school and people would still be alive.
