FAA rescinds 40 year rule

Why isn't this talked about?

Hi, I'm new to the Blog, but I,ve come to the site for @ 2 years. Something has bugged me for a couple of years now. I was reading an article by a guy named Kent Southard a couple of years ago. He stated that in July of 2001 the FAA rescinded a little known rule that since 1961 ( The Cuban Missle Crisis) airline pilots had been allowed to carry guns in the cockpit. When I saw this I thought it was a huge smoking gun. I researched it and the only corraboration I could find was on the Right Wing website World Net Daily. Their article claimed it was true but they blamed it on the FAA ( Federal Government, Duh!) and the airlines. Does anyone else have info on this and why isn't it talked about? Has it been disproved?
