House OKs Bill to Arm Airline Pilots

House OKs Bill to Arm Airline Pilots

Quote:
WASHINGTON Airline pilots could carry guns in the cockpit to defend their planes against terrorists under a bill the House passed overwhelmingly Wednesday despite the opposition of the White House.

The legislation, approved by a vote of 310-113, would allow guns for more than 70,000 pilots if they agreed to undergo training. Lawmakers stripped out provisions that would have limited the program to some 1,400 pilots, about 2 percent of those flying.

Bill Allows Pilots to Carry Guns; Now Two Things In Cockpit Will Be Loaded

Quote:
Washington, D.C. The U.S. House of Representatives this week overwhelmingly passed a bill allowing flight crews to carry guns aboard aircraft, a measure strongly supported by pilots, who boasted they could now be both armed and loaded.
