    Example: we don't allow firearms on planes. Collectively we're safer, individually we're safer, even if individually we lack one avenue of self-protection.

    so banning legal guns in chicago decreased the amount of illegal ones? the war on drugs has proven your claim silly and punishing the lawful users of items in a hope to deprive the criminally minded is specious

    Illegal guns start their lives as legal guns. With the exception of prescription medicine abuse illegal drugs start their lives as illegal drugs.

    That's not an equivalent comparison.

    We don't allow smoking at the gas pump either. I don't want anyone to have a firearm on a plane.

    and the argument you make is moronic because you suggest punishing millions of lawful gun owners to perhaps stop a few criminals.

    given that terrorists can get guns on planes, I want armed Sky Marshals at least potentially on planes

    That's ridiculous, the only way a legal gun becomes illegal is if it becomes banned by law. A individual using a legal gun to commit a crime becomes a criminal, not the gun, the gun is still legal.

    Somebody has dropped the ball majorly if anybody is allowed to carry a firearm onto a plane. What happens if a bullet prices the fuselage of a pressurized plane?

    I get it. And if the others in the 'collective' dont want to take individual responsibility for their security, that's their problem. They do have the choice.
