Might as well take the guns out of soldiers hands next...

Dear President Obama, I know YOU are safe flying that big White House In The Sky but WE are not...Please give the pilots their weapons back! Sincerely, Frank J Witt...fed up American Citizen.

The Obama administration is taking steps quietly to shut down the program that qualifies commercial airline pilots to carry firearms in jetliner cockpits in order to ward off another 9/11-type attack.

The administration recently diverted $2 million from a program to train and certify pilots to carry firearms safely while on duty. Instead, it is using the money to hire additional field inspectors to help discipline pilots who step out of line, according to a report in Tuesday’s Washington Times.

A Times editorial condemned the Obama administration's action, calling it “completely unnecessary harassment of the pilots.”
