I love the Robbin Williams Comedy act!, very funny.
But back on topic, I have heard of the bullets that will pass through flesh but not the fuselage too. I don't remember from where though.
First of all, the tazers DO NOT work [well]. You have to aim for any exposed skin (if you use the type with the projectile leads), and then you have
to be uncomfortably close to them to hit them with it.
Also, tazers will not incapacitate someone permanently. They can get up, and if they are determined enough (as most fanatical highjackers can be)
they will just keep going.
Also, Lexus Panther, mace? In a pressurized cabin? When someone farts in first class, I can smell it in economy
, think about it.
For the most part, I trust the pilots, I mean they're already FLYING YOUR PLANE. Commercial pilots have one the most regulated jobs in the U.S.
They already get rigorous pshycological screenings.
I saw on the news, some anti-gun type saying that they can just throw the plane around to stop any miscreants, instead of using guns. Uh huh, you'd
be throwing around any one trying to subdue them, AND it's hard on the plane.
I'd rather have them be able to use guns, personally.
I do understand where most people are coming from.
