Really? and exactly how do you plan to keep someone who OWNS THEIR OWN PLANE from flying into a building? The regs which were not issued would have done ZERO to prevent what happened. But by all means, let's regulate for the sake of regulating.

Bob: I think the point is that right now, purchasing and operating a GA aircraft is pretty much like buying and driving a car.

And the real thrust of the blog post is not so much GA regulation as it is an example of how "Nobody Would Ever (do something)" is *not* a valid argument against security regulations. On September 10 2001, Nobody Would Ever hijack commercial airliners and use them as kamikaze weapons. On February 17 2010, Nobody Would Ever use a GA aircraft as a suicide weapon. What else is there that Nobody Would Ever do?
