Here's another thought. All anti-gun people take note. If an armed terrorist were in your midst, would you or would you not prefer to have armed and proficient people to help defend you? The only person you can rely on 100% for your safety is yourself.

Here's another little something to think about. Guns can be snuck onto planes fairly easily by those who truly want to. It's just not possible to have the level of scrutiny necessary to catch those who have planned a hijacking carefully. The level of security required to catch all hijackers would make flying impossible. A disassembled pistol can be snuck in by two people with the parts hidden in otherwise inconspicuous X-ray masking items. Especially with the polymer parts on most weapons now. The world is just not as safe as we beleive sometimes. I've often wondered if armed guards hidden on planes would reduce terrorism?
