How screwed up our priorities are

When one incompetent guy tries to set fire to a shoe bomb on a plane and fails, everyone has to take off their shoes to fly. The POTENTIAL possibility of a liquid explosive being brought onto a plane is there---with no indication that I know of that it has happened---and no one can have too much shampoo on a plane now.
And while some complain about it, most passengers grin and bear it as a necessary inconvenience to keep them safe.

But thousands of people get shot every month by unregulated guns, and we can do NOTHING??? We live in a sick society alright. The only difference I can see is that air travelers don't have as strong a lobby giving money to Congresspeople to legislate their interests.

It's a goddam shame.
