“Yes and no. Yes, because all of the extreme things that have gone on. If someone had a gun that might not have happened. No, because it’s sad to think you have to take extreme measures against other human beings.”

“Yes, for protection. As long as the pilots aren’t using it on each other.”

“That’s debatable. I’d say yes on certain conditions. It’s about safety.”

“No. It’s dangerous to store a firearm at 30,000 feet in a plane.”
