Passenger Group Calls For New Airport Security Measures

FlyersRights.org Responds To Shooting At Fort Lauderdale Airport

Passengers should be able to count on TSA and local and state law enforcement authorities to protect them. The principal lessons from Lockerbie, 9/11 attacks, and the Brussels, Istanbul and now Fort Lauderdale airport massacres are that air transportation continues to be a prime target for terrorism and mass murder.

Airports are now clearly the No. 1 soft target, and are naked and totally unprotected. No act of terrorism and mass murder in history has not been repeated without effective defensive measures in place.

FlyersRights.org has called for TSA and Congress to provide for stronger airport security after a shooting attack at LAX airport in 2013, and again in July 2016 after the Brussels and Istanbul airport massacres, but nothing was done.

Now emergency measures must be imposed to prevent more lives from being lost and the US air transportation system is paralyzed as occurred after 9/11 terrorist attacks. This includes:

Calling out the National Guard for temporary armed airport security.
Installing airport perimeter security to detect weapons and explosives on persons entering major airports.
Banning the carrying of live ammunition in checked baggage.
Increasing canine patrols to detect explosives.
Placing anyone who is deemed a security threat by a law enforcement agency on the TSA Watch or No Fly list, but with due process means for removal from such lists.
Paul Hudson, president of FlyersRights.org, former member of the TSA Aviation Security Advisory Committee and father of a Lockerbie victim, noted, "Those victims at Ft. Lauderdale should not have died, and should certainly not have died in vain. Blood on the ground is unfortunately too often the price for government officials to act."

Flyersights.org previously supported the application of the Whistle Blower statute to TSA and Homeland Security Dept. in a successful amicus brief to the US Supreme Court in (MacLean v Dept. of Homeland Security) in 2014, and successfully opposed the reintroduction of knives on planes in 2013 by the TSA.
