I am not sure personally. It is certainly clearly accepted that military personnel ( including the military police) can and do take guns on military aircraft flying legally on international journeys. . Also, I am inclined to accept the following " How To " information (published within the last 3 months) as reliable:
I am inclined to believe that the procedures outlined are reliable, and that there would be no problem at the destination airport provided clearance had been obtained in advance from any countries in which the airline had to land for refueling or for passengers to disembark, and most importantly in the country in which the police officer(s) were intending to disembark.

I believe they have to declare them and put them through as checked baggage (of course, in the proper storage cases, with ammo seperate). I would think the only time they would be allowed to carry them on (with prior airline approval) would be in the case of Air Marshalls or guards escorting prisoners.
Hahah! I was just wondering because they can on domestic flights and I had just watched Die Hard for the 20th time and I wanted to know.
...where is this question exactly going... ??
No they can not
