The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is requesting public comments on the issue of airline pilots carrying firearms and flight deck crewmembers carrying less-than-lethal weapons on board commercial aircraft. Provisions of the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) would authorize the arming of pilots if certain approvals are granted. The deadline for comments is February 14, 2002, and comments must be identified by Docket No. FAA-2001-111229. Currently, the DOT is not accepting mail delivery through the U.S. Postal Service, but comments can be faxed to the DOT at 202-267-5075, or can be filed by e-mail through the FAA's Web site at [url]www.faa.gov.[/url] Under the "Regulatory/Advisory" headline, select "Rulemaking," then select "Documents Open for Comment," and follow the directions for submitting comments electronically. 1972 Polaroid introduces the instant colour camera.
