Majority of Americans say post-9/11 air safety adequate, poll finds

Pilots pack guns in the cockpit. Passengers stoically wait in line at security checkpoints. Experts trained in the nuances of human behavior roam airports searching for potential terrorists. These are just some of the hundreds of safeguards imposed in the seven years after 9/11 and, according to a new Ipsos/McClatchy poll, a strong majority of Americans believe there is now adequate security in airports and airplanes. Some, in fact, think there is too much.
