Congress: Leaving your gun home when you fly is for little people

If you fly in a private jet, no matter how big, you should be able to bring all the hijacking equipment you want, say House lawmakers.

Makes sense; they know the people who fly on private jets, and their friends wouldn't do anything bad with a jet.  According to the article, Bennie Thompson:
also questioned the proposed requirements for affected aircraft operators to prevent passengers from carrying prohibited items onto the aircraft. "While unauthorized weapons, explosives, incendiaries and other destructive substances must be excluded from general aviation aircraft, this rule appears to apply a commercial passenger security checkpoint standard to general aviation."
