Guns On the Plane?

A very short time ago I wrote about a new (to me) organization called US Concealed Carry Association. I registered with them for their free email newsletter. It may have just paid off.

Yesterday they sent this:

You see, I just read a disturbing report on the USCCA forum about how Obama is (very quietly) ending funding for the training and arming of pilots.

Funding and training. Choke off the supply route and you restrict, if not kill, the head. Both Bonaparte and Hitler learned this lesson the hard way. In Russia. In winter. Must we re-learn their lessons in America?

The Flight Deck Officers are the last line of defense in an airplane hijacking. Our lives, in the air and on the ground, are literally in their hands.

The 12,000 Federal Flight Deck Officers, the pilots who have been approved to carry guns, are reported to have the best behavior of any federal law enforcement agency. There are no cases where any of them has improperly brandished or used a gun. [source].

We can't find any independent poll in which the public is demanding that pilots disarm. Why does this move make sense?

Yes indeed. Why, and under what circumstances, could this make sense? Is it because hijackers have given up on aircraft? Is it because the hijackers are looking elsewhere to do their evil?

Or is it because Dear Leader Obama and his minions have determined that the world is so safe for American Socialists that we no longer need to defend our aircraft?

Personally, I believe the root cause is the pack of useful idiots in Washington are in lock step, marching to a Socialist America. It may be a national socialist (Nazi) regime or more communistic as time goes by, but it is starting out socialist.

God Bless Ya'll !
