This one?  Really?
 
2013-11-01 01:18:25 PM
You'd think that there would be much less gunfire in a gun-free zone like an airport.

Well, they had to do something to stop the flood of NewsFlash links I suppose.

CNN reports Godzilla and Bigfoot were seen in the area

Tory Bellici is tweeting about it from the terminal.

The white zone is for loading and unloading only.

Looks like opressive gun control, an extreme version of nanny state government and a police state with opressive taxation still produces nuts and loons.
 
2013-11-01 01:20:18 PM
But I thought Los Angeles had some of the most restrictive gun laws????

I thought it was weird when I started getting breaking news from the Mythbusters and other people I follow on twitter who were at the airport.

Oh, for fark's sake.  Are we really doing this so soon in the thread?

Chris Hayes has done my work for me here.

Now stop it with the debunked myths.

To be fair, not all parts of an airport are gun-free zones. I don't have to submit to a security scan to buy a ticket.

From Fox News (so take that as you will):  "One witness said a person with a gun opened fire after getting through a security checkpoint."

Can't wait to find out if that is true.

I never thought I would shoot down a  German airplane but last year at LAX, I proved myself wrong.
(It blocked the cloud I was yelling at)

I got first word of it from Tory. First thought being that they set a cannon off in their luggage.

Another day another mass shooting. Wonderful

No, the red zone is for loading and unloading only.  There is no stopping in the white zone.

It's an entirely different kind of shooting, altogether

Listen Betty, don't start up with your white zone shiat again.

Yes, but in the European Union they offer mental health care.

Good jobs mods, you don't pick the thread where Subby is there and a witness to the shooting and had all the comments...

Anyway, LAX is one of 4 or 5 airports where the TSA are private contractors and not government workers.

A person that called NBC4 said that it was not at the security checkpoint.  He said it occurred at the ticket /baggage check counter by the doors where you enter the terminal.

Local TV news had a guy who was preparing to go through security when it happened and he said he thought the shots came from outside of the "secure" area. He didn't see it, though, and airport terminals can be weird places acoustically speaking.

The white zone has always been for shooting and being shot at.  There's just no shooting in the red zone.

Looks like flights are being diverted/asked to circle.

Yep, David Cook (singer) tweeted that his plane hasn't landed yet.

It's true. CNN has confirmed a security cam pic of the suspect.

Eh, you weren't missing much. One that was decent was "5 star situation at Los Santos Airport", but nothing that even got multiple upvotes

A TSA agent was the only person shot.

Thanks to a donor I won't name in case he doesn't want the attention of other liters begging for TF access, I can now see them.  Surprised the one where a subby was actually there didn't get greenlit.

(p.s. huge thanks to my TF donor)

TSA confirmation via TV news:

TSA employee shot in the leg at the security checkpoint, where they check your ID before pushing you forward to be inspected and groped.

Well that's better news than I expected.  I guess the triage tarps are normal procedure.

One guy being interviewed by KCAL9 says the guy he saw with a gun was a white guy with short blond hair. He estimates the guy was in his early 20s
