Daily Kos Radio's Kagro in the Morning show podcasts are now available through iTunes.
Did you know that the TSA typically finds about 900 guns on airport passengers and in luggage each year? And that the problem has been getting worse and worse in recent years, to the point where they found 1,543 of them last year (1,215 of which were loaded)?
And did you know that the excuse most often—in fact, almost universally—given is that the passenger "forgot" they had the gun?
Isn't that amazing? What happened to all the rhetoric about how they just can't—and won't—live without their guns? You can have my guns when you pry them from my cold, dead hands... or when I forget I even have them in the first place?
So what's up here? Are 1,500+ formerly Law Abiding, Responsible Gun OwnersTM lying to authorities? Or are they really forgetting they have guns with them, in which case we have yet another reason to question the real value of having all these armed people around in a moment of crisis? "Well, I would have totally taken out that mass shooter, but I forgot I had a gun!"
Fascinating. But of course, there's more than just that going on. We'll continue to reflect on the goings on at the Supreme Court this week, check the day's top stories, and generally dig out some interesting stuff for you to start your day.

We've been having some chronic problems with the phone-in system, and it's rightly pointed out that if we can't deliver on the promise, we shouldn't hold out the offer.
I'll see what we can do to get the tech straightened out so that we can open the doors again, soon!
