In 1972, Archie Bunker had an outlandish idea to stop airplane hijackings: just give all the passengers guns! (Duh.)

In a vintage clip from "All in the Family," spotted by Huffington Post, Carroll O’Connor's iconic over-the-top character appears in an opinion segment on local TV news where he shares his thoughts on keeping air travel safe. (Back then, it was easier and more common for planes to be hijacked.)

They just pass out the pistols at the beginning of the trip, and they pick ’em up again at the end. Case closed.”

Check out the clip (story continues below):
