Woman removed from plane after bringing gun aboard
FORT WORTH, Texas: A 65-year-old lawyer was arrested for carrying a loaded handgun aboard an American Airlines jet at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.
Judith Kenney was released Wednesday on her own recognizance, said her attorney, Dallas lawyer David Finn.
Kenney carries a handgun for protection but had forgotten that it was in a computer bag she carried on board the plane, he said. She has no criminal history, he said.
Screeners at a security checkpoint had detected a gun in a woman's carry-on bag but she "picked up the bag and left the checkpoint before the screening process was over," said Greg Soule, a spokesman for the Transportation Security Administration, which operates the checkpoints. When TSA screeners spot a gun in a bag, they are supposed to seize the bag and notify police, he said.
Officials got a photo of Kenney from a closed-circuit video system and showed it to airport employees. She was taken into custody by DFW Airport police about an hour and 40 minutes later, Soule said.
An airline spokesman said Wednesday that the plane was headed for the runway when it returned to the gate and was met by airport police

So just so we're clear: The TSA agents knew the gun was in the bag, and let this 65 year old lady take the bag the gun was in and she made to an airplane that was about to take off anyway.
So again, I have to ask, what is the TSA actually good for?

What's the TSA good for? Laughs?
OK, more seriously, yeah, things happen fast. And most of us have probably missed something searching someone only to have it found at the jail. But there should be some damn serious investigation of what went wrong here.Voting against incumbents until we get a Congress that does its job.
