Mounties to carry loaded firearms on Canadian flights

The Conservative government in Canada has agreed to allow peace officers to carry loaded firearms on Canadian airplanes. The in-flight security officials, to date, have never carried loaded guns on flights before. Airlines were barred from “knowingly allow[ing] a person to transport a loaded firearm on board an aircraft.”

The government has not yet said who will be considered eligible to carry loaded firearms on board. As part of the Canadian Air Carrier Protective Program, RCMP officers travel undercover on planes.

The change was part of an overhaul of the Canadian Aviation Security Regulations. The changes will take effect on July 14, 2014.
