...and gun rights meet terrorism hysteria, with what otherwise would be a freak out being forgiven

Here. About, what, just a whole bunch of ammunition primers, meaning the explosive parts of bullets and shotgun shells, found in luggage that exploded at an airport. Nothing serious. Because it related to an all american past time, guns, the story is not being questioned, touted as being a potential terrorist plot, etc... but being quietly excused. Hypocrisy, thy name is the Republican Party and the Tea Party movement. Folks who are Muslim and who have gone shooting have been convicted of "training for terrorism" based on videos of them saying things in Arabic while doing it, but this fellow, who checked potential explosives onto a plane, without a permit, is getting the aww shucks treatment.
