#436 brings up an interesting point. I'd have to totally agree with that statement, as I myself have had a similar experience. While on my way to Florida, we went through Customs. Shortly afterwards, we had to go through the metal detectors and have our bags x-rayed. However, they let me go on through WITHOUT going through the metal detector. I could have easily had a conceiled weapon on me, and got off scott free.
I do want to bring up something else however. For starters, I would just like to share my condolences for those whom may have perished in the attack, those who survived, and for their families. This was a terrible act of terrorism, and I hope that those responsible receive the punishment they deserve. What concerns me is that terrorist events have been going on for a long time now. A few weeks back, several suicide bombers blew up buildings in Israel and Palestine, however that never warranted a G.A.T (Gamers Against Terrorism - See PlanetHalfLife), it never gained large amounts of media attention, nor did the American government seem to react whatsoever, let alone care. Now, the US get's attacked in an extreme cruel act of terrorism. All of a sudden Americans are 100% against terrorism, and implore other countries of the world to follow their crusade to rid the world of such attrocities. Where was this attention when it was going on elsewhere?
You know what? The Canadian government (from which I fall under) aren't any better. We sat around, and all of a sudden decide to take action as well. I just wish to bring up the point that maybe attention to the matter of terrorism should have been paid a long time ago, instead of waiting for one of the worlds superpowers to feel it's wrath.
