If we keep just increasing security every time something happens, but never take a step back we will end up flying in a bloody mandated armed cockpit with machine guns pointed everywhere.

Iíd rather just have a normal lock and bring back captains discretion to bring people up for a cockpit visit..
That access to the flight deck applied everywhere except the USA / FAA regulated flights of course, prior to 9/11, when everyone stopped it. In the UK and Europe passengers were welcomed into the flight deck and interested ones were often allowed to sit in for the landing. I don't think that was ever allowed in the USA?

But in the last 20 years, it's been about 0 deaths from cockpit incursions and 600 from suicidal pilots. The 3600 were primarily from one tragic incident, 9/11.
