CNN, Piers Morgan was broadcasting live from Tactical Firearms in Katy, TX. There, he interviewed gun range founder Jeremy Alcede, Texas AG Greg Abbott, a Texas state Senator and a Texas radio host, among others. During one interview, he asked the question, “Do you know why there are no shootings on airplanes? Because they are the perfect example of Gun-Free Zones.”
Ummm… hey Piers, thousands of U.S. airline pilots are ARMED while flying their planes. Right now, there are well over 10,000 armed pilots flying commercial airlines on a routine basis.
In fact, not only are pilots armed and licensed to carry concealed guns on the flight deck, commercial airplanes also have armed air marshals who also carry loaded guns on flights.
There are men with guns on thousands of commercial flights every week
Far from being “gun-free zones,” commercial airplanes in the USA are actually “gun-defended zones,” and that’s precisely the reason why terrorists are reluctant to stage violent hijacking on commercial airliners in the USA.
The only way to make commercial airplanes even safer would be to have MORE armed pilots and co-pilots on the flight deck. Armed pilots are a strong deterrent against would-be hijackers and terrorists.
Shhhhh. Don’t tell Piers Morgan he’s been flying in airplanes piloted by men with guns. He might freak out and try to leap out mid-flight. As is the case with most guns, you don’t readily see them because they are carried concealed. Many people who are protected by concealed guns don’t realize it because they don’t see them. Out of sight, out of mind, apparently. http://www.infowars.com/piers-morgan-reveals-astonishing-ignorance-in-claim-t…Tags: Alex Jones, iTunes Podcast, CNN, Piers Morgan, Gun Grab, 2nd Amendment, Big Brother
