Dear Representative Walden,

On this website: you are quoted as saying: "We don't want the plane to depressurize at 30,000-feet because someone thinks they saw a hijacker."

Fortunately, you're wrong about the depressurization issue. Here is a quote given by a Licensed Aircraft Engineer today:

"One or even several bullets puncturing the pressure cabin wall would be hardly noticeable and the aircraft's pressurization control would easily cope with the slight loss of air. The likelihood of a single bullet causing a massive structural failure is so remote as to be insignificant. It is quite possible that gunfire in the cockpit or passenger cabin could cause damage to fuel, hydraulic or electrical lines but again it would have to be unlucky to cause a major problem that could not be survived.

"Commercial jets pressurization systems are designed to maintain the cabin at a pressure altitude of not exceeding 8 or 9 thousand feet no matter how high the plane is flying, and they do this with a typical differential of maximum 6 to 9 psi. Rapid depressurization is uncommon and systems warn of creeping depressurization because at a cabin altitude of over 15000 feet blackout is likely to occur but by then the oxygen masks will have long before deployed typically at around 10 to 12000 feet pressure altitude.

"I believe I read somewhere that a Boeing 747 can lose five cabin windows and maintain cabin pressure so I personally would not be worried about a few potentially life saving shots being fired by a sky marshal - what effect that might have on ones hearing is another matter entirely!"

Now that your issue is a non-issue, we expect your support and full cooperation in first arming pilots, then Sky Marshals, and then helping lawful, peaceable citizens in being able to help assure that an event like Black Tuesday cannot ever happen in America again.

You can begin by support H.R.2586 to allow pilots carry firearms, which, unless your quote was an inauthentic excuse, we fully expect you to do.

Angel Shamaya
