End Ticketed Passengers Only at all US Airports NOW!! sign now

End the "Ticketed Passengers Only" rule at all US airports NOW. This law was created after 9/11 to keep our airports safer. This rule is no better than a window dressing that the TSA imposes on passengers to give us all a false illusion of security. People should have meeters and greeters come back to the gates again before a long journey. This rule is clearly violates the first amendment of the US Constitution which clearly states that the federal government shall pass no law in restricting the freedom of assembly in a public place and this rule violates the right to assemble in a public place as an airport is a public place. Here are the main reason why it should be ended:

1.Preventing non-passengers (meeters and greeters) from going to gates does not enhance security since all persons must pass through security and clear checkpoint areas. Meeters and greeters make up a small percentage of all pedestrian traffic (10 to 15\%), and have little if any effect on security, logistically.

2. Prohibits friends and loved-ones from providing assistance to children (unaccompanied minors), elderly and handicapped persons. While gate passes may be available, many people do not know the procedure and are unable to obtain one. This is coupled with the fact that airlines are laying-off employees, thus causing even less assistance to travelers in need. This could also lead to violations of the Americans With Disabilities Act in the U.S..

3. Visitors are less likely to be a security threat. They usually do not have large bags and simply walk through the magnetometer. And at certain slow times of the day, there are no passengers walking through the checkpoint at all. There is no reason not to let these persons through to the gate area.

4. The Airport, including all gate areas, is public and should be open to all. This procedure is followed in courthouses and other government buildings. "Ticketed passengers only" is an unnecessary and unacceptable restriction of movement, and serves no useful purpose. It only leads to the inconvenience of everyone.

5. Businesses and Restaurants, airport malls, at the airport are seeing a financial loss due to less revenue because of "ticketed passengers only".
