How to get around the TSA’s new travel restrictions
The TSA announced Tuesday that it would impose new restrictions on air travel across the country, including limiting passengers’ ability to carry a loaded firearm.
The TSA says it’s trying to prevent terrorists and other people who pose a threat from boarding planes, and that it will only allow passengers who are licensed to carry concealed firearms to board planes.
This is the second time the TSA has imposed restrictions on travelers, which it announced last week, after it expanded its rules on travelers carrying guns from its original set of restrictions in December.
The new restrictions include limiting the size of a loaded gun, limiting the number of rounds allowed on a gun, banning guns from certain sporting events, and requiring that gun owners wear masks at airports.
The restrictions also include requiring people to get a travel security pass and requiring a background check.
The agency says it wants to make it harder for people to purchase firearms, and it will issue additional warnings about the dangers of gun ownership, such as “lone wolf attacks, domestic violence, and gun-related suicides.”
But many travelers, including those who already have travel plans, said they would be concerned by the restrictions.
“This is going to cause a lot of people to be worried about their travel plans,” said Ryan Stoll, a travel writer for The Travel Channel.
Stoll said he’s already taken a lot less flight time than he was previously, and said he will be considering whether to stay home this year.
“I’m going to be watching this very closely,” he said.
Andrea Kuczynski, a student in New York City, told The Associated Press that the new restrictions could make it difficult for her to get to her destination, even though she has a travel agent that she can call to make the necessary changes to her travel plans.
In addition, the TSA says travelers who want to board airplanes will have to pay the full cost of the ticket, even if it’s not as much as they expected.
The TSA also announced it will no longer allow travelers who do not have valid tickets to take photos of themselves and other passengers on the aircraft.
These new restrictions come amid a national debate about gun control and a nationwide backlash against the government’s mass surveillance program.
Earlier this month, a federal judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security to stop its mass surveillance of American citizens, but the agency has refused to comply with the order, which was signed by President Donald Trump in March.
