    Here's an article today on the Feds pushing other countries to allow our pilots to fly with guns. Good to see a relatively positive article on the topic:

    One comment though: were licensed citizens allowed to carry guns on airplanes, 9/11 would not have gone down like it did. Surely there would have been casualities, probably numbering in the tens or even dozens, but not thousands. As ugly as it sounds, even a shootout on a plane with terrorists is better than planes hitting skyscrapers. What might happen, all the people on the plane die? Hmmmm, let me pull out my old newspaper articles...
