"Airport security isn`t rocket science. But it also can`t be conducted effectively by arrogant idiots who lack both judgment and discretion. The job of the TSA is to protect air travelers, not to harass them. What is needed is less petty fascism, and more common sense. The great danger, as we learned on Sept. 11, is that hijackers will turn an airliner into a flying bomb. But if the pilots have guns and the hijackers don`t, the odds on a successful hijacking drop to near zero. Those pilots who wish to carry guns (which is most of them) should be permitted to do so forthwith," writes Jack Kelly, a national security writer for the Post-Gazette.
