U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., believes the best way to prevent another 9/11 type attack is to arm all airline pilots.
“I want all pilots to be armed,” Paul said Wednesday in an appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity,” adding that this is the “most cost-effective way of deterring another attack.”
In addition, Paul announced that he has crafted legislation to help streamline the process.

“The goal of my bill is to have 100 percent of American pilots armed because I think it’s a very cost effective,” Paul said. “It’s the most cost effective way of deterring another attack on our planes.”
“The president has zeroed this out of his budget,” he added. “He’s advocated for getting rid of the program. And when I talk to pilots — I’m at airports all the time. Pilots come up to me all the time and say it’s too hard to get a permit and to keep up the permit.”
Known as the the Federal Flight Deck Officer program, it was established in direct response to the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. The Obama administration has been actively trying to reduce the number of armed pilots by cutting the program’s funding.
