People that are trusted to pilot passenger aircraft.
I can see Obama's logic. Guns are "scary", while an airliner. What's the worst it could do?

Uh oh... Pentagon Ready To Announce Weapons Cuts
Ace's thoughts: "Because Lord knows, we wouldn't want to create or save any jobs in an industry that actually employs Americans, what with this whole recession thingy going on."

Obama's spending for next year: 28% of GDP

Military and guns are bad, domestic spending to "change" America good.
Hang onto your hats.
