... or any other form of plane hijacking if everyone on the plane were allow to carry some kind of firearm on the plane along with the air patrol officer? The idea sounds crazy knowing that every person around you would have a gun on their lap. But I cannot bare to imagine a group of religious radicals hijacking the plane , firearms in their arms, and I am not able to defend my self against these irrationalists. Even with an Air-marshal on the plane, I'm not sure I would feel safe ; What if the hijackers outnumber the air marshal(s) and therefore the hijackers could easily defeat the airmarshals. I would feel ackward if everyone carried a firearm on an airplane. However, I think that would be the option for a person to do if passengers were to encounter hijackers on the plane. The Passengers would most likely outnumber the hijackers , and therefore the passengers could easily overpower the hijackers. Of course the passengers would have to demonstrate they know how to use a gun properly before being allowed to carry a weapon on the plane.
