Air Marshal Shoots Claimed Bomber

A flight arriving from Colombia had a deranged passenger aboard. He claimed to have a bomb in his bag and a Federal Air Marshal shot and subdued him.

But, deep at the bottom of the Fox News story, was a funny part:

Homeland Security officials confirmed to FOX News that this is the first time a federal air marshal has discharged his or her weapon since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

The first time any Air Marshal has discharged his or her weapon in several years? Don't they practice?
