    All the security measures at the airport are useless if someone really wants to go on a killing spree. Just the price we pay for our “freedom” to have more guns than we could possibly need. I’m sure the families are comforted by the fact that their second amendment rights are safe.

      Security “measures” don’t mean much if law enforcement has no problem with people possessing firearms even if they “hear voices” .

    “Santiago visited an FBI office in Anchorage in 2016, claiming voices were telling him to fight for ISIS…”

    “In January 2016, Santiago was charged with two misdemeanor crimes: one
    count of fourth-degree assault and another for damage of property over
    $50. According to a spokesperson from the Anchorage Police department
    the incident was related to domestic violence.”

    “Santiago’s brother said he had since been receiving psychological counseling.”

    So this guy had possession of firearms why? Oh right, the NRA and the rest of the gun industry lobby.
