As was asked when this issue was debated -- and resolved, we thought -- "If you don't trust a pilot to carry a gun, what the [bleep] are you doing allowing him at the controls of a plane carrying 300 people?"
Nah, he's not a hard-core ideologue or anything. He just wants practical, common-sense solutions.
If this is the solution, then somebody please 'splain to me the problem.
It has been a long almost two months — hate to think of four years. We need huge gains in Congress is stop this tide of insanity coming out of ZERO.
That needs to be on a billboard.
.......and the hits just keep on-a-comin’.
Typical libtard... only people allowed to carry weapons are the bad guys.
Wasn’t that actually a law. I know Bush made it so difficult that almost none went through the program.
Can Obama just rule the law invalid? I know he could play games with how it is carried out like Bush did but that is different from just ending the program.
If we, as a country, make it that long. :-(
what was the stated reason for such a dumb action??
Why the change?
I don’t see the overwhelming necessity to change the rule. Have there been a lot of incidents of pilots accidently discharging them on board or something that I haven’t heard about?
Everyday that effer proves what a marxist prick he is. I used to think I despised the Clintons, but they were in a way way lower league than this guy. He is an evil bastard. Until his term is up, I will not sleep well, and I will pray our country is still saveable when he is through trying to destroy the American Dream. He won’t put out the flame of patriotism. We have to keep up the good fight, be heard by Washington, protest in anyway we can. We must endeavor to persevere.
Good policy for Islamic fundamentalists with boxcuters on planes.
You know you have a serious problem when you long for the conservative days of Bill Clinton ~~
No source? Just a blog? Hmmm...
Clinton is Jesse Helms compared to this joker.
What you said - ditto!
I recall one caused by using the TSA mandated "safety holster" which requires pushing a bar through the trigger guard of a loaded gun.
Obama CLEARLY fears that he himself is a target - and will attempt to disarm the entire nation.
I have to fly out of the country in a couple of months, I’m more nervous than ever now.
Obama defunded the semi-annual training program that enables pilots to keep their gun qualification.
How long before he demands that the cockpit doors be propped open
so his Muslim brothers can take a tour ?
Well, last November we had an election for President.
And this clown, Barak Hussein Obama, won.
Believe it or not!
It was prejudicing a minority, making it harder for Muslims to enter the cockpit.
Don't worry. It won't go to waste.
The new VOLUNTEER CIVILIAN ARMY will need training somewhere, and money.
Plus searching brings up confirmation, and it's quite easy if you dispute something posted here at Free Republic:
This guy is a political genius. /s
It seems to be defunding of the training program for pilots firearm license. Hard to pin-down the wording.
every day, every way
Oh I wish I could truly express myself about this charlatan in the white house.
I’m not kidding, this has been the LONGEST two months I’ve ever experienced!!! I feel absolutely drained.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
That evil SOB is aiding and abetting mohammedan terrorists and is encouraging further attacks on CONUS.
More terrorist attacks = more scared citizens = more laws restricting freedoms = more power over our lives concentrated in the hands of these wannabe overlords.
A long four years? Only if we survive it.
Y G B S M!!!!
"The words on the screen - the words on the screen told me to do all those things."
Yes, I was just telling The Husband how odd it is to miss the Clintons. How very very strange. The difference is they do not hate America. The Usurper does.
There is no logic behind this decision, because having armed pilots hasn’t been an issue at all. If pilots would have been armed, I’m certain 911 wouldn’t have happened.
One can only conclude this is ideology trumping logic and fact. Hussein is SO anti gun, he won’t even acknowledge that having armed pilots as a last line of defense to defend a plane could save lives.
God help us.
He REALLY is that damned STUPID!!!
Edit, please. You have an F-bomb in your text.
All I know is...
If some terrorist attack involving airliners like 911 happens again, could it have been prevented if the pilots were armed? Since Hussein disarmed the pilots we would never know.
If something like that happens again, Hussein will face political destruction of the likes we have never seen. Of course the media will do their best to cover it all up for him.
And you are not the only one.
“then somebody please ‘splain to me the problem”
Well the guy running the country, can’t even run his mouth without the aid of a teleprompter. Also, to this day he still hasn’t proven he is an American citizen, but that’s nothing to worry about... Did I mention he has zero experience?

Washington Times EDITORIAL:
Guns on a plane...Obama secretly ends program that let pilots carry guns
CCRKBA Press Release:
Obama Effort to End Armed Pilots Program an Outrage, Says CCRKBA
TSA Week at a Glance (March 9 - March 15, 2009)
9 passengers were arrested after investigations of suspicious behavior or fraudulent travel documents
24 firearms found at checkpoints
3 artfully concealed prohibited items found at checkpoints
21 incidents that involved a checkpoint closure, terminal evacuation or sterile area breach
It's a double whammy. Unbelievable.
And now the bad guys will know that the pilots aren't armed.
