Gangster government, TSA edition.

After posting a video critical of airport security, an airline pilot gets a visit from the Feds:

I think the pilot might really have cranked Janet Napolitano with this observation: "As you can see, airport security is kind of a farce. It's only smoke and mirrors so you people believe there is actually something going on here."

Three days after he posted his critical video clips on YouTube, four federal air marshals and two sheriff's deputies arrived at the pilot's house to confiscate his federally-issued firearm. At the same time as the federal marshals took the pilot's gun, a deputy sheriff asked him to surrender his state-issued permit to carry a concealed weapon. The pilot's attorney, not unreasonably, said he believed the federal government sent the posse to the pilot's house in order to send a message.
