It seems more states are becoming upset with the TSA's overbearing approach to airline security. Some state lawmakers are proposing laws to outlaw "enhanced" pat downs and porno scanners.

Proposed New Hampshire bill would categorize TSA naked body scans, pat downs as sexual assault

A new proposal before New Hampshire lawmakers would make it a crime for US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents to grope travelers as part of "enhanced" security pat downs or send them through naked body scanners. If passed, House Bill 628-FN would classify such activity as sexual assault, punishable in the same way as other offenses in this serious category.

Cosponsored from both sides of the political aisle, HB628-FN specifically "makes the touching or viewing with a technological device of a person's breasts or genitals by a government security agent without probable cause a sexual assault." It goes on to specify that those convicted of such offense will be classified as "tier III offenders under the criminal offenders registry."

Natural News

I love that part about registering them as sex offenders.

Texas is also proposing a similar law:

Legislature to TSA: Don't Mess With Texas!

Legislators in the state of Texas are seeking to protect the Fourth Amendment by utilizing the Tenth Amendment.

Angered by the violation of civil liberties at the airport at the metaphorical, and physical, hands of the Transportation Security Administration, members of the Texas Legislature have introduced the following bills:

HB 1937: Bans offensive touching of persons seeking access to public buildings and transportation and penalizes those who engage in such.

HB 1938: Outlaws the use of the naked body scanners at Texas airports, and subjects those in violation to this law to penalty.

The New American

If the jerks in Washington can't get it through their thick heads that we're fed up with their crap, maybe they'll get the message once we put their jackbooted thugs behind bars for sexual assault.

What really tics me off about all this is; the country was attacked by a bunch of foreigners (if you believe the OS) and We the people have been paying for it ever since. They have been treating the American citizenry like WE were the criminals by clamping down on our freedoms ever since 9-11.

I'm tired of being treated like a prisoner in my own country just for exercising my right to travel or attend some event.

Using a very high visibility action to make it look like they are taking appropriate action is all this is.
It is just a useless display to make the people thing the are doing some thing.
But it has been proven useless. As 3 box cutters have been taken through this Terror display.
And it is to break the will of the people.
So They can be the Big brother and look in to Every part of your life.
It would end up that they have cameras in ever room you go.
With your mobile phone they can do that now!
