    Good lord. Talk about dumb asses. We have seen what happens when someone does something bonkers on an airline after 9-11. People do not hesitate, they go after the asshole. So why the need for guns? How many bad guys have managed to get guns on airplanes since 9-11?

    This bullshit about having guns as the answer to everything is going to get some pretty stringent gun laws put into place. By now, most sane citizens have begun to assume that all you gun nuts are completely around the bend. And you have given them every reason to make that assumption.

    You truly are clueless…

    Archie Bunker was a foil contrived by liberals, Norman Lear in particular, meant to ridicule conservatives and conservative dogma. Each week Archie would say or do something stupid, to expose the stupidity of conservatism.

    In the skyjacking editorial episode, Archie advocated passing out guns to all the passengers to be collected at the end of the flight. We assume to 'defend' the aircraft from a skyjacking attempt.

    His ‘proposal’ was laughed at by the audience, clearly aware of the idiocy of the idea – and as was the rest of America.
