Ffdo Pilot's Gun Holsters May Be Unsafe

Thu Dec 04, 2008 9:27 am

According to federal investigators of the Office of Inspector General of Homeland Security, the holsters used by pilots in the FFDO program may be unsafe, and may lead to accidental discharges.

This may have bearing on the accidental discharge this past March on a USAir flight.

Guns if not managed well can be a bigger problem that not having a gun in the first place.
