What about fanny packs or big, heavy purses or coats with big pockets?

Slip on shoes only. Strip searches at the door. No pocketknives, toothpicks, or sharpened drinking straws. Be compliant, speak only when spoken to, say “yes, master” and “no, master” and most of you won’t get hurt.

How about just not allowing Muslims to go in without being thoroughly searched and vetted?

Really not the point even though some of these students likely keep their entire lives there after having been subjected to transiting from one location to the other.

The point is that we, particularly our masterful overseers - Obama and his incompetent ILK, are relegated to continual regime of REACTING instead of ACTING in advance. Box cutters? We can’t even take nail clippers on board, they didn’t let anyone have metal silverware for a long time - maybe still don’t. Shoe bomber? We still have to take off our frigging shoes. Underwear bomber? That’s where those boob X-rays and millimeter wave reflectometers came from...

You name it, our inept government and officials REACT!

Maybe carrying some art projects and a few meals, to help combat the dreadful boredom.

They hate us for ‘being’.

They use our freedoms (and other things) to overpower us.

The glaring reason I go to no sporting events, concerts, or large assemblies. Basically no place I cannot carry.

We used backpacks, just not bookbags.

Backpack was how you carried your 12-pack on your bike.

Indeed.

O’bammi’s end game is a world religion - Islam - so the entire world can suffer in the manner of the islamists and all whom they oppress.

'Cuz they won't let you carry in a beer cooler?
