I know you fellas have a thing about guns
I've just read this thread where you discuss 'seriously' the rights and wrongs of a pilot who fires a bullet through the aircraft. And you are worried about terrorists and 'homeland security'.
Best of luck to you all, I won't be visiting your shores again until some degree of common sense abounds - reckon I'll be pushing up the daisies well before that happens.
You can carry guns on the flight deck if it puts a smile on on your face, but it won't unfortunately stop acts of terrorism in the good old USA - only a change in foreign policy will do that, or might do that. Trouble is that even when that good old boy Bush goes away you know the replacement (of whatever colour) is not going to change policy that much. To hell in a handcart is one way of putting it.
