Why can't commercial cargo ships have weapons on board?

I finally saw Captain Phillips. I didn't even know it was "based on a true story" going in. (Which I know entails a significant deal of "Hollywood-izing".)

After doing a bit of research I became aware that pirate attacks on commercial vessels like this are too common.

Which makes me wonder why these vessels can't have weapons and/or security/military personnel for self defense purposes. Seems like it would be much more effective and less expensive than having to call for help from the Navy and then wait for them to actually arrive.

I couldn't help but laugh at how relatively easy it was for them to get on board. Seems like a couple of snipers on deck could have ended that quickly. Especially since the Navy didn't take him seriously during the pirates' first boarding attempt. Obviously a motorboat with four guys armed with AKs making a beeline toward the ship aren't just harmless civilians.

It just seems to me like that would ultimately be cheaper to have a few armed guards than the cost and resources of dispatching rescue teams and/or paying their ransoms in such a highly probable event.

Hi Brandyn. I agree.

Because it makes sense. No, seriously, it seems like any plausible reason to have weapons are slowly being made illegal in this country.
