I really dont like the idea about arming pilots. Tell you why, a pilot with emotional or a depressed mental state of mind could just as well bring down a jetliner or even take out himself with a gun!!! PLEASE try to understand that you dont have to be a terrorist to do such an act. OK, if you want pilots to be armed then the FAA should do extensive psychological evaluations or even criminal backround checks for pilots. In addition to my response, why do people want armed pilots or armed sky marshals in the air? That tells me that were not doing a good job on security checks here on the ground. The first step is that we have to make AN EXTENSIVE SEARCH here on the ground so we DONT have to get pilots armed.
