The TSA should be reformed. They have a liquids rule that only allows you to take a maximum of 3.4 fluid ounces onto a plane. That is ridiculous! Then they charge you a few dollars for a bottle of water. You could buy a gallon of milk with that money! There have even been lawsuits because of the prices of bottled water being insane. According to the Wall Street Journal, a 20-ounce water bottle costs less than a dollar at convenience stores, but can cost up to five dollars at the JFK and Seattle-Tacoma International airports. How is this fair? How is this logical?

Anyway, what if someone were to somehow sneak a weapon onto a plane? The Transportation Security Administration states that not even airplane staff are allowed to carry weapons. So, does that mean that everybody is just supposed to get killed by the one lunatic that has the weapon? I sure hope not.


No, the TSA should not be reformed.

Nearly 4,000,000 middle and high school students nationwide aspire to be future engineers, scientists and technologists through the Technology Student Association.

7 points to Pro. Reasons for voting decision: I don't think Con even read Pro's argument... The Transporation Security Administration, not the technology student association... Pro wins.

[*Reason for removal*] The voter does have to at least say how Pro affirmed the resolution, even if Con's entire argument was off base.
