Shoes and Guns

In 2001, one nutcase tried to bomb an airplane with a shoe bomb. Nobody got hurt or killed. However, since 2001, everyone boarding an airplane in the United States has been forced to remove shoes at screening stations. With 2.25 million air travelers every day in the U.S. alone, that’s 13.99 billion times people have taken their shoes off.

Gun violence kills about 84 people a day in the U.S. We have taken no significant regulatory steps on the federal level since then.

For Shoes – one threat on no deaths causes massive regulation inconveniencing 13 billion people traveling.

For Guns – 84 deaths a day and we don’t even blink, let alone act.

I can’t find anything about shoes in the Constitution.
