    The pilot can choose to kill every person on the plane whenever he wants to... Why would allowing him/her to carry a fire arm pose any additional risks to the passengers at all??

    Seriously though... How can you trust a guy enough to allow him to pilot an air plane full of potentially hundreds of people, going 100's of mph, tens of thousands of ft in the air.... yet not trust him to carry a fire arm??

    What they need to do is divert some of that $2mil to replacing that accidental discharge special holster the TSSA requires.

    -hit percentage for trained officers <20%, in an airplane that means those other 4 bullets are coming at your face
    -explosive decompression

    So basically you're fucked on a plane no matter what so don't worry about it.

    For you tin foil people: this would ensure any terrorist attack faked by the govt could not be stopped by a random pilot, who may be carrying.

    Couple things that I take away from this:

    1) This administration doesn't believe in non-LEO weapons. Period.
    That includes pilots, and eventually....all you CCW holders too.

    They clearly recognize weapons confer power, as did the founding fathers, and they prefer to accrete power in their own hands, not the people's.


    2) Holder merely spoke too soon, and this confirms for me that Pelosi's recent seeming reluctance to back his anti-2A move is purely strategy.

    That is, trying to blunt the current rush to buy up more arms as the up-front quick win

    And secondly, the realization that their best strategy for disarmament of the American people will come later, when they feel stronger and have marshalled their forces both literally and politically.


    The next few years will be interesting... I feel like I'm literally watching the future of the country being decided upon right now.
