A lethal threat must be met with lethal force.
Pilots across the country are speaking out Tuesday and blaming the government for dragging its feet. They say 40,000 pilots want to carry guns in the cockpit. But so far, the Transportation Safety Administration has trained less than a few hundred. And after the TSA stopped hiring air marshals in May, pilots say theyre often the last line of defense.

(Capt. Jim Nelson/Pilot)

If someone does get into the cockpit, it gives us a very good chance of defeating that threat.
Pilots who volunteer take a week of classes in weapons instruction and combat drills. But critics say adding any guns to airplanes is dangerous. And the TSA initially opposed the plan, and called it unnecessary.

(Chris Lawrence/CBS News)

TSA officials said passengers are more alert than ever. And the airplane itself is protected by bulletproof cockpit doors and tighter airport security.
Some passengers support the plan, others say it does nothing to intimidate terrorists.

(Catherine Loe/Against Arming Pilots)

Theyre pre-meditating, pre-planning something much bigger than a gun is going to prevent.
Some pilots say thousands should have been trained by now. But the TSA says the pace of training will pick up now that its established the program and full classes are booked through the end of September. Chris Lawrence, CBS News, Los Angeles.))

The current merchant tax for Montgomery County is a dollar-21-cents per $100. But many area car dealers who say the tax is too high. They have avoided paying it by moving their vehicles out of the county by the first of the year. Under the law, if the inventory is not in the county on January first, the merchants don't have to pay the tax. The dealers say they don't want to move their cars, but they have no other choice.
