Could someone please post an engineering comment so I can feel like this is still a Structural Engineering listserver? The last couple of days have been pretty bleak.

No one is advocating concealed weapons for everyone.  In fact that is already outlawed in most states.  A license to carry is not easy to obtain and has  nothing to do with registration for purchasing or owning a fire arm. 
I'm referring to people that feel comfortable with firearms in their home and for target shooting or hunting.  Prudent fire arms owners are familiar with gun safety and wish to be able to keep them and use them for protecting family and property if absolutely necessary.  Hunting licenses in California are no longer issued to applicants who have not had a fire arms safety course.
If you don't like fire arms or you are not comfortable with having one, that is understandable.  Others prefer to keep their 2nd Amendment rights.

Can snakes overtake an airplane? I saw that in a movie too.

The point is, concealed weapons for everyone for personal protection at all times, is not a good solution because it's easily misused or could have very bad unintended consequences.

I did see that episode as well.  Catastrophic depressurization does not occur when a bullet penetrates the cabin of an airplane.  Except in the movies…
    Is what happened to Payne Stewart's plane considered catastrophic depressurization? If it is, I wonder what it does take for there to be a catastrophic depressurization. If a bullet hole isn't large enough to cause it to happen, a fairly large component must have failed on his plane. Does anyone know what they finally determined caused Payne Stewart's plane to depressurize? .
