    54/46

    Liberals with an agenda write the questions. The fact that is on MSNBC would be a dead give away.

    55 to 45 when I hit it.

    I'm just wondering if any of those saying that gun carrying in airports would endanger more people would feel the same way if, God forbid, some madman went in there shooting the place up; would they feel that they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, or if they would all of a sudden feel the need to take responsibility for their safety into their own hands. Then again, no amount of reasoning has ever been known to change the mind of an anti, so what's the point?

    The problem is that most antis' opinions regarding firearms are based on emotion, not thought and reason. Arguing with them is like trying to calmly explain to a 6 year old why this is an appropriate time to go to bed.

    Aye aye!

    That would convince me to fly again. As it is now, I do not travel where I cannot drive.

    Uh...

    Just a small point for your consideration, even though the probability of it every occurring is low.

    Do not fire a standard round on a high-altitude aircraft. The overpressure could actually cause a rupture in a seal, and create a rapid depressurization. The Air Marshall's actually carry specialized rounds, and are trained to use their firearm only as an absolute last resort.

    Not true. Thoroughly hashed out here and on many other pro-gun sites.

    I have about 5000 hours flying "high altitude aircraft" and I'malways amused when I readstuff like this. Where exactly are you getting your info, and do you have any idea how the pressurization system works on a jet? It's not like in the movies.

    Even if it were true, use hydra-shok or several other variant hollow-point rounds and make sure your grouping is very tight.

    My most humble apologies.

    This turns out to be one of those urban myths that get accepted into the public's knowledge.

    Thanks for the correction, Smash.

    No problem Phoenix. Hope I didn't come off too badly with my response, it's just that aviation is the only subjectI'm even remotely qualified to comment on so I need to take the opportunity when it presents itself!

    That link you posted explains it all a lot better thanI could have. Thanks.

    A few months ago, this was proven wrong when a pilot had an AD in the cockpit (albeit while on the ground).

    Sure, why not. Imagine the lookon the faces of thenext group ofterrorists that attempts to hijack a plane and drive it into a building. Nice thought; very nice thought.

    It would depend on who owns and operates the airports.

    This poll is a farce. The 2 questions are barely related.

    If you're talking about the USAirways incident, they were in the air when the gun was discharged.
