    Washington Times - EDITORIAL: Guns on a plane

    Much more at link.

    So, what the hell is this? Disarm the pilots, none of which have ever abused their authority, not even so much as brandished their weapons?

    What say you?

    Obama is afraid of guns. He's probably going to die by one. I've said for awhile now that my bet is he'll be assassinated.

    Meh ... guns in planes are bad anyway. Anyone stupid enough to fire one while in the air is pretty much not worth having as a pilot. If someone does hijack the plane with a gun while it's in the air just let go of the controls and disengage auto-pilot ... at that point I would dare them to fire with an evil grin.

    There's nothing in the linked article that proves the thread title.

    Oh yeah... I'd rather have the plane flown into a building and die in a fire ball than have a pilot shoot a terrorist and save us all. :eusa_hand:

    What do you think the pilot training was for?

    had the Pilots had guns on 9/11, perhaps they could have defended themselves against cave dwellers with box cutters. Perhaps not but I will gladly take my chances than to be at the mercy of just the bad guys being armed.
