I have done this quite a few times (I fly quite often)
You carried a useless weapon on board..What's your point..A locked gun with no ammo isn't really a gun..It's a harmless toy but I'm glad you get to keep your binky on board.

They only get approximately 15 hours of training..Air Marshalls get 18 weeks of training. I don't want some fringe gun nut pilot with the muzzle pointed down cabin. I'd rather fight then leave it up to a pilot at 33,000 feet. One isolated discharge in flight is wayyyyy to many for me. It shows a lack of training. That's the problem with guns..It only takes one isolated accident to take ones only life.

Yes, I did

But, you were vociferous in your determination that that was impossible. You even called me a "nut" if I thought differently.

I would rather have a partially trained, and armed pilot, defending the flight deck against intrusion, than let armed hijackers take control of the aircraft.

What's your point? A gun isnt a gun without any bullets. Golf clap for you for carrying you confidence on board...

Still a nut for proving nothing.

I am not the one trying to put a sexist spin to the comments you are.
you said that manhood had something to do with firearms and I said that my girlfriend would be suprised since she owns more firearms than i do.

The rest of us that dont "cling" will be enjoying our lives not preparing for a coup..I wish you all the best(except in your quest to obtain assault rifles and WMDs). Enjoy the inauguration!!!!!


too bad lieberals like you do not understand the difference between assault rifles and military look alike rifles. assault rifles are already in the pervue of the federal goverment and military lookalike rifles are not.

liberals just want them banned because they look nasty and having the general population owning alot of them goes against their goal of more goverment control.

as far as buyin another civilian lookalike military rifle, misnamed "assault rifle" I shall be buying another one tomorrow without any sort of 4473, and all completely legal.

I should've stayed away
actually, you do not have to be a fleo to carry upon a plane, all federal employees are allowed to carry except for the military when not on official missions.
