I'm a bit ignorant in this respect, but wouldn't shooting a gun in an
airplane risk depressurizing the plane and/or shooting innocent people on
Sure it's a problem :-(
This doesn't sound like much of a solution. Maybe we can equip
pilots with chinese stars, nunchucks, and commando knives???????? Would
that work? Does that sounds ridiculous? I think so.
Not much of a solution unless you have highly trained people (not the
flight crew) who's job it is as much to know when(no to)shoot as well as
being highly trained with both firearms and hand to hand combat
Everyone is angry and wants to be protected, but do we want to become a
society where we need to carry our AK-47s to the grocery store to pick up
milk? Great Britian police don't carry firearms...
I don't know what the solution is, but guns in planes don't make me feel
safe (regardless of who's carrying them).
