    ...the TSA is tasked with insuring airport security. I'm pretty sure their interest is in preventing airplanes from being used as terrorist weapons.

    Obviously any venue which has security screening isn't going to be very "safe" unless no lines form at the security screening points since those lines provide a place where there are a lot of people bunched up ripe for targeting (and, many, at a location that would then create a lot of fear and cause people to avoid if there had been an attack - thereby disrupting the economy).
