Next logical step: disarm the Secret Service agents that guard the president. After all, one of them may go postal on a bad day, right?

Same goes for police officers.

And we've all heard of military personnel committing atrocities, right? Disarm them, too. Esp. fighter pilots.

Heck, using Obama's logic, nobody should carry a gun.

What a dunce move!

Unless he wanted to kill everyone on board and then fly the plane into a building.

For a second I thought you were referring too the plane crashing because he was aiming the gun.

has there been an incidence where the pilot has needed and used the gun?

and aren't there air marshals who are armed?

Air Marshalls only cover a very small amount of high threat flights. Most flights don't have one onboard.

And just when you thought it couldn't get any more dangerous when we fly, Obama Wants To Disarm U.S. Pilots

The Obama administration is taking steps quietly to shut down the program that qualifies commercial airline pilots to carry firearms in jetliner cockpits in order to ward off another 9/11-type attack.

The administration recently diverted $2 million from a program to train and certify pilots to carry firearms safely while on duty. Instead, it is using the money to hire additional field inspectors to help discipline pilots who step out of line, according to a report in Tuesday’s Washington Times.

Since Obama took office, the approval process for certifying pilots to carry firearms has ground to a halt, the newspaper reports. Pilots are afraid to speak out about the behind-the-scenes maneuverings, for fear of retaliation, according to the newspaper.

What's next?
Islamo Terrorists will be autmatically upgraded to First Class?

I'm sure a fairly high percentage of airline pilots are ex military so you know damn well they know their firearms more than anyone, but our Prez want's to give any future airborne terrorists an upper hand.

Geez, just whose side is he really on?
