Knew this was on the way, although I thought it would be in London first (Probably is already without publuc knowledge).

more invasions of privacy and if you won't allow it you are stuck, unless you go get a bus or taxi or cycle.

And I have a legal licensed weapon on me..along with 1,000s of other law abiding citizens.

What will they do with us? Off to the side so we show our permits, attracting attention to us carrying?

Defeats the purpose of concealed security carry....stupid. Oh...I get it...we'll just open carry so all can see and just hop right on the subs?

You don't have a right to public transportation though, no constitutional rights have been infringed, it is your choice to use the transport and be scanned...or not.


No it's not a right, but public transportation is typically at least subsidized if not mostly paid for through taxes. Hence the name public transit. Though a lot of public transit has actually been privatized, while still receiving hefty help though public funds. So, ya, things that are funded, even in part, by public money should be available for use without invasive scans.

Funny, you’d think SF would’ve been the first bein in Cali transportation news all the time. But I guess when you’re not allowed to comment on what a suspect looks like, well, then...

Maybe not?

Freedom is much more important than safety for anyone that cares about personal liberty.

I'm curious, where do you stand on scanners at airports? I feel that the safety of knowing someone isn't going to pull another 9/11 far outweighs anyone's "freedom" to concealed carry a weapon.

the big bother survillance state surges on.

I reckon our governments must be feeling very guilty about what they have done or a slowly doing to us, and they are convinced that we will rise up against them when we find out or experience it, that they feel they have to have controls in place that will ensure that no uprising will ever get off the ground, in order to protect themselves.

I bet the security dudes play games when bored. A new one could be "underwires/no underwire?"
