let's face it, what we all wanna know is, was he a White guy or a Middle Eastern guy? We gotta know if he's a terrorist or just a wacko who got bullied at school.

...in all seriousness, sucks.

I'm betting the "Build The Wall" chant will get louder.

I expect airport security in the U.S. to tighten up severely in the next couple of months. Usually when stuff like this happens at airports they change their whole security routine.

Sorry, didn't mean for my post to come off like that; I was in a rush and preoccupied with something. No one should ever do something like that man did, no matter the reason. It's just wrong.
The fact that he's a hispanic guy that did this makes it worse for me. I've had friends and family talk and worry about being deported for months, and I haven't been too worried, but with this I fear things could get worse.

Not if Trump has anything to say about it. He can't tell the difference. He'd probably just deport everyone just to be safe.

Yeah, let's turn this into a political opinion thread. It'll work out well.

He has already more or less declared as much. Between building that ridiculous wall and wanting to deport anyone who is "foreign" it seems he wants to make America WHITE again. #NotmyPresident.

Oh, USA have been deporting legal citizens long before Trump was a thing

Especially in the 30's and 40's where half of the people that got deported was US citizens.

and then there's this guy...

Unless they're brown and don't have papers on them to prove that they're legal citizens all the time.

Be curious to see what, if any, changes come from this. Not to mention how the Gun Lobby will spin it. Maybe we should allow MORE guns in the airport? Maybe more good guys with guns at the airport?

I will say I'll be right pissed if people can bring guns to the airport, but I still need to take off my damn shoes, not travel with water, or have to get the first-date pat down.
