Subject: RE: BS: Guns on planes
The one point that may be in the pilots minds is that the Sky Marshalls would be carrying guns!

(Yeah, I noticed that!)

But this means a source of arms on the plane. Terrorists who can't get a weapon through security know that they only have to overpower one person to get a loaded weapon. And their intelligence will surely allow them to identify the marshalls in advance!
