Subject: RE: BS: Guns on planes
Mark, thats exactly what I thought. It struck me as odd that some British pilots have raised objections.

The appointed marshalls would pressumably be highly trained, and would only use the gun as a desperate last ditch means to gain control of a situation, that was currently being controlled by a lunatic with a gun?

And the frangipan bullets sound just the ticket. I am not at all trigger happy, quite the opposite, but I did think we are so helpless flying through the air, that this was a welcome deterrent.
