However, the shooting in LA definitely raises some concerns about airport security for travelers.

Many passengers say there is simply not a good solution to stop this sort of violence from happening.

Karen Chamberlin said, “I think you can take precautions but if someone’s determined to give their life for yours, there’s nothing you can do to stop it. You’ve got people that don’t value life and they kill people.”

Chamberlin’s husband is actually flying into Oklahoma City from Los Angeles.

Authorities stress that while there haven’t been any major delays, it is always a good idea to check your flights before heading to the airport.
