Exactly, how else would people that like to travel for hunting trips be able to take their guns with them?
Do you have to call ahead or anything so they are expecting you when you do this?

I have never heard of this exact type of event taking place, what was his motive? Who goes to an airport, kills no one other than themself? He clearly wanted to make headlines, maybe he wanted fame, maybe like others said to send a message to washington.
I don't think he was MK-Ultra mind controlled into doing it, but it does fit the purposes of washington.

In response, an air marshal fired at the man, but missed, and then the suspect pulled out another gun which he turned on himself, KHOU News reported. In all, a total of five to seven shots were fired. Read more: www.nydailynews.com...

It is a common fantasy that gun bans make society safer. In 2002 -- five years after enacting its gun ban -- the Australian Bureau of Criminology acknowledged there is no correlation between gun control and the use of firearms in violent crime. In fact, the percent of murders committed with a firearm was the highest it had ever been in 2006 (16.3 percent), says the D.C. Examiner. Even Australia's Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research acknowledges that the gun ban had no significant impact on the amount of gun-involved crime: In 2006, assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2 percent. Sexual assault -- Australia's equivalent term for rape -- increased 29.9 percent. Overall, Australia's violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent. Moreover, Australia and the United States -- where no gun-ban exists -- both experienced similar decreases in murder rates:
