I hope that I am not the only one who thinks this is a very bad idea.
Here is another idea... dogs.
They can be trained to sniff out the most minute trace of gunpowder, explosives... etc. Just having small teams patrolling the airports could weed out any potential threat.
Here is another idea, let's stop freaking out about airport security. Yes, some elements of society may have bad intentions, but I do not live my life in fear of them, either in an airport, on the highway, walking down the street etc...
This is coming from a guy who travels by plane on a regular basis, I would gladly do away with the exaggerated security measures, as I trust my fellow human beings. And, on the very small chance something was to happen, well, I guess it was just my time to go.

I'm sorry but I for one would have to disagree. I have nothing against a CCW as I'm a private Investigator and allowed to carry concealed without one but the current process to get a CCW is a joke any nut job that wants to get one can get one just pay the 60$ for the class and 120$ in filling fees and there you go (in Oklahoma). Now having said that I for sure do not want some mental person with a CCW on a plane with me, if anything that would deter me from flying. Now don't get me wrong not all who have there ccw are mental but there are those that do slip by.
