Pilot who misfired gun in cockpit will be fired

Remember the US Airways pilot that fired a gun in the cockpit? CNN is reporting that the airline will eventually fire him for the incident.

The Federal Flight Deck Officers Association, the organization “which represents pilots who are federally trained and allowed to carry firearms on flights,” will be fighting the termination, calling the incident “accidental not intentional.” Well, duh.

I don’t think anyone was questioning whether the shot was intentional or not, and its intention doesn’t make the bullet any less dangerous. But should he be fired for the mistake?

What do you think?
