Default NJ Introduces Bill That Bans TSA Scanners and Pat Downs

http://www.senatenj.com/index.php/do...pat-downs/7435

Cant belive NJ of all places was the first to actually re-establish peoples rights.

NJ Legislation Bans TSA Scanners and Criminalizes Unreasonable Searches and Invasive Pat Downs


New Jersey Senator Michael Doherty (R-Warren, Hunterdon) announced today that he has introduced three pieces of legislation drafted to eliminate any immunity TSA agents might enjoy when violating New Jersey law during unnecessary and invasive airport screenings:
“For more than a month now, the TSA has quite literally stuck their finger in the eye of law-abiding American citizens while trampling on their constitutionally guaranteed liberties,” Doherty stated. “We call upon every state legislature in our great country to immediately act to put our federal government on notice that the dignity of our citizens shall not be the cost of a failed federal open border policy.”
The following bills were introduced:
  • Makes certain body searches third degree crime of sexual assault under certain circumstances. View as PDF.
  • Prohibits use of body imaging scanners to screen passengers and airline crew members. View as PDF.
  • Specifies that certain images generated by body scans violate State statutes, prohibiting invasion of privacy, pornography, and endangerment of child welfare under certain circumstances. View as PDF.
“All of these bills remove any claim that TSA agents are immune to any state statutes that they violate when searching passengers or crew,” Doherty concluded. “If we don’t take strong action against these violations, where will it lead? Today planes, tomorrow trains and buses, what then? Will the drive to the market be viewed as a ‘privilege,’ the walk to church? Will we stand upon the slippery slope of paranoia that leads to invasive searches becoming a way of daily life, or say ‘No’ and defend our rights to privacy now while we still have them.”
Senator Doherty has launched an online petition to support his efforts to stop invasive TSA screening procedures at http://www.stopthetsa.org.

the problem with this is that it even if it passes it will pretty easily get challenged in federal court and be tossed.

I applaud the effort and trying to get the ball rolling but establishing federal jurisdiction for interstate travel is pretty easy and the justice dept will have this tossed in no time.

As a nation, we began by declaring that ”all men are created equal.” We now practically read it “all men are created equal, except negroes” When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read “all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics.” When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocricy. - Lincoln
