    Foolish. A one shot non lethal weapon that leaves you with an uninjured potential murderer ****ed off in the ultimate gun free zone. They will never learn.

      It's just another band-aid. The majority of pilots are military reserve, trained in the use of weapons and a hell of a lot more mature than the ordinary civilian.

      Could it be, at base, that someone thinks that a pilot with a gun is suddenly going to start shooting people

      Seal the cockpit doors, use CCTV and arm the pilots. That levels the field a little.

        A step in the right direction. I hope they have handcuffs too. Pilots who carried mail years ago WERE armed with handguns. Like I said - a step in the right direction but more can be done.
