Feeling Safer Yet? 

And they say we don't "profile" enough:

(via MN Star-Tribune)
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- A Florida woman arrested at Fort Lauderdale Airport with a gun in her carry-on bag says she ``wouldn't harm a soul.''

Margaret Anderson told deputies and reporters she forgot the pistol was in her tote bag. The single-shot Colt Derringer was in a gun case built to look like a hardcover book. The gun was unloaded but there were seven bullets in the case with it.

The 79-year-old woman was booked and freed on $1,000 bond. She could face up to five years in prison if convicted.
Same gun, but carried by someone of a different gender, different age. Or a darker skin color. What kind of bond would we be looking at?
