Guys, the easiest solution is have everyone get naked before they board the plane. No place to hide a weapon unless it is up....never mind. Granted, it wouldn't be pretty, but terrorists can't see naked women, so they couldn't board the plane! Just my sick 2 cents....

When I said disable the aircraft, I was not talking about explosive decompression. I am a pilot, have been to the altitude chamber many times, and I do watch MythBusters.
Oh yeah, and just because one has a CCW does not automatically make me 100% comfortable with their skills such that I would want them firing a weapon inside an aircraft full of jet-A at FL350 with my wife and three kids seated around me.
