Roger Hedgecock advocates for guns on airplanes as good solution



Roger Hedgecock, right wing talk show host and ex-mayor of San Diego, says there should be more guns on airplanes.

On his U-T TV show of Jan.21, 2013, Hedgecock interviewed Larry Pratt, the extremist leader of Gun Owners of America. At one point Pratt said that more guns in the schools would have prevented the school massacre in Newtown, CT: "A lot of Americans now are thinking, wait a minute, if there'd been somebody with a gun at Newtown, surely it might've involved fewer than 20 people being murdered."

Hedgecock added, "And we know that's true in airplanes, it's true in the Aurora movie theater, it's true everywhere. In Columbine it would've been true as well."

Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade would each shoot a foot off in the first week.

2. Ya, right...asshole.

Guns, bullets and crazy people...firing off rounds, in a pressurized cabin.

Any thoughts about all those bullets piercing the fuselage, windows, floor or cockpit areas?

What a stupid fuck.

3. One round . . .

One high velocity round accidentally fired through a pressurized cabin wall when you're about thirty thousand feet in the air?

Nothing to worry about. Don't be such sissies. It'll be fun for everybody!

6. A gun on the plane only puts you at parity with the terrorist. What you need is a bazooka.

When I put down a terrorist threat on my flight to Seattle, but criminey, I want that freedom-hater to stay put down.

7. To paraphrase Piers Morgan

You're unbelievably stupid men, aren't you?

(Piers Morgan to Pratt (pratt by name and prat by nature) gun-rights advocate: “You’re an unbelievably stupid man, aren’t you?”)
