Sounds to me as though your issue is with getting concealed-carry
permits rather than with having people on board who are, almost by
definition, trusted with concealed weapons.

It sounds to me as though this is more an argument to scrap the whole
idea of keeping weapons out of the hands of airline passengers (at
least while they are on the plane).
