Let's arm all the pilots who want to carry. Let's also arm any flight attendants who want to carry! Makes too much sense...

Harrased until an innocuous comment is made (for which they can arrest you) ..meanwhile the most likely looking terrorists ( Middle-Eastern looking men between the ages of 20 an 40 )pass through airport security unchecked...
Little ole ladies stripped searched...war veteran amputees harrased ...elderly Americans arrested for complaining about needless searches and arabs passing through unsearched..
kids made to drink contaminated pond water...mothers made to drink their own breast milk while their infants go hungry...incompetent affirmative action security officers with grudges
unarmed pilots.....and a Sec Trans whinning about "the next thing ya know train crews, bus drivers and truck drivers will want to carry guns".....
If I cant drive there I aint going....

The best way to do so is to arm pilots. Nope, the best way is to trust Americans and allow those with conceal carry permits to take their pistolas when they travel. No more hi-jackings, and no more on board mayhem.

One of the strangest objections to allowing pilots to carry firearms is that liability standards would have to be adjusted. This is a criticism that could only be raised in a society where liability has run wild.
Apparently, adjusting the standards isn't insurmountably difficult, as it was already done in the opposite direction in 1987. Had they not changed the standards then, they wouldn't be having this "problem" now.

Does anyone know if these things: EMD Weapons
orM18-L 4 shot
I am curious. Also the claim that they have more take down power than a 9mm is repeated on several of these sites.
If they do work, might be easier for flight crew to use these - if they miss a shot they won't be putting holes in a pressurized cabin, or hitting other passengers.
