Except that more than a couple of people have brought their handguns with them aboard commercial passenger jets,despite the TSA and checkpoints.
Also,more than a couple of FEDGOV armed employees LEFT their loaded handguns on the plane,to be discovered by ODCs who notified flight attendants. Nobody lost their jobs over that,either,AFAIK. FEDGOV has over a dozen agencies with their own internal armed "police forces",ASIDE from FBI,US Marshals,and ATF.

There are now calls from the Left for gun control legislation in response to Adam Lanza's unconscionable mass killing of innocent children at Sandy Hook Elementary.
