Subject: RE: BS: Guns on planes
Letter about this in the Guardian today that seems to make a lot of sense:

Picture the scenario. An unarmed terrorist creates a diversion on an aircraft. It will soon be obvious who the armed sky marshal is. Other terrorists seated elsewhere overpower him and take his gun. Consider the large percentage of US police officers killed with their own guns.
