I have been noticing that airlines are putting in efforts to keep people from having any sort of knife. Well, unfortunately, they can still carry on pens and pencils, and these in the wrong hands are lethal weapons.
I think a more secure way to handle this issue is to have an armed security guard at the front and back of the plane and/or arm the flight attendants.
Further, no access to the cockpit should be permitted.
What do you think about these ideas? Should I contact the FAA with my suggestion?
