So here's something to think about. When most pilots are furloughed, aren't they given some sort of notice, like "Your last day will be month from now"? If we change the rules and once again allow guns in the cockpit, what if you have an angry, or depressed soon-to-be furloughed pilot in the cockpit who wants to extract revenge on the company? Should they still be allowed to have a gun in the cockpit? If so, then I think when pilots are told they'll be furloughed,it should be done so after their last flight. JMHO.
