Bunker for President.....
Over 30 years ago, Archie Bunker had the solution for airport security:
"Now, I want to talk about something that's on everybody's mind and that's your stick-ups and your skyjackings. If that was up to me, I could end skyjackings tomorrow. All you you gotta do is arm all your passengers. If the skyjacker knows all the passengers are armed, then he wouldn't have no more superiorority there, and he ain't dare gonna pull out no rod. Then your airlines wouldn't have to search passengers on the ground no more, they could just pass out the pistols at the beginning of the trip and pick 'em up again on the other end. Case closed."
