I understand your point. Yes there is a risk having a gun in the cabin but is that not a risk we are currently willing to take with FAMs? The risk of having a captain locked out of his own cockpit is...

The article I read stated he was adjusting speed to prevent overspeed alarms from sounding. I suppose that means he was dialing down airspeed, progressively, to keep the AP from pitching up...

i'm still not totally convinced of the suicide angle. Without knowing precisely how long that cockpit door would hold, a suicidal FO in total control of the aircraft would dial in a 3000fpm descent...

There may have been, the first time around. That right wing looks nothing like the original video, which appeared to show the top surface mostly intact. The latest video shows nothing but internal...

At the time of the crash the seas were said to include 3m swells. Would the chances for ending up with an unbroken plane after ditching on 3m waves be fairly low?
