If you wanted to make TSA Agents (otherwise known as security guards) armed Federal Agents you would need to dismiss the entire staff. The overwhelming majority of them do not meet the standard (fitness, age, education, experience, etc.) to be a Federal Agent. Most TSA folks are average Joe's trying to earn a paycheck. But..... there are many who take advantage of their position. Remember all the baggage theft rings at various airports that involved groups of TSA Agents? And sadly, many of them have an attitude/ego problem now. Wait until they are armed. If anything expand the U.S. Air Marshal Service and add them to various locations throughout airports including the screening gates.

Giving away more and more of your liberties to the government - in exchange for hollow promises of safety - will only hasten the day that we have none left.

The program is a joke and the people are a disgrace. Slapping a uniform and badge on these people does not mean we owe them respect.
