Your help is needed to help arm all the pilots. For some reason congress left out language including cargo pilots when they voted to allow pilots to be armed. There is a bill in the Senate to correct this. Please contact your local congress-critter & have him/her vote to arm the all the pilots.
While you're at it mention that passengers shouldn't have to give up their right to self defense just because they don't feel like driving across country. Ask them to sponsor a bill that would arm the passengers as well. It doesn't have to be complex, just one that says no rights will be infringed while flying, including the right to arms & self defense.
