"Our position: The new plan for giving pilots guns isn't needed. Better alternatives exist."

"Guns don't belong in the cockpits of commercial aircraft. Period."

"If pilots are allowed to carry guns, the potential for a catastrophic incident far outweighs any perceived security enhancements that passengers or the flight crew might feel."
 

Arming pilots

"Not all pilots would be armed under the terms of a compromise proposal offered by House Democrats and Republicans on Tuesday, but at least 250 of them would be. That, in combination with the presence of armed federal air marshals, might give would-be terrorists a case of the second thoughts. The greater the likelihood of encountering an air crew capable of defending itself and its passengers, the less likely that an attempt will be made to commandeer the plane."

"The Second Amendment sealed into the law of the land the fact that American society is a society that not only tolerates guns, but was built upon their ownership. The Colonials who fought in the Revolution did not run to the local armory to get an 'issue' weapon, they reached in their closets. Apparently this lesson is not lost on the advocates of 'more gun laws,' who do not want another revolution."

"For some reason, many Americans -- even those in the gun control movement -- think the United States is a net exporter of civilian firearms. Nothing could be further from the truth. Although there are certainly areas (e.g. Latin America) in which illicit trafficking in civilian firearms from the United States is a problem, many more civilian firearms pour into the United States than leak out of it."
