http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...afety-in-airl/Large numbers of airline pilots have volunteered to be trained, deputized as federal law enforcement officers (known as Federal Flight Deck Officers or FFDO’s) and armed with firearms to defend their passengers and our country. Despite dire predictions from a few, armed pilots have amassed a record of safety that is the envy of Federal Law Enforcement while providing a crucial layer of deterrence and protection for the traveling public.
But despite the bipartisan support, the exemplary safety record, the obviously effective deterrent and the extremely low costs (amounting to a few dollars per flight), the Obama administration continues to attempt to defund this outstanding example of public/private cooperation and has set up road blocks that discourage the highest possible level of participation from airline pilots. Here are some examples.

If TRUMP 2016 loses then I will shrug off my WHITE MAN'S BURDEN and leave the world to the Dindus and Done Nuffins. Read and understand Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged as a prescription for the future. TRUMP 2016
