A lot of cargo ships have been attacked and captured by Somali Pirates.

How come engineers do not place guns, such as a .50 caliber gun[1], a M61 Vulcan[2], or even an 88 mm flack gun[3], on the rear portion of the ship to repel and/or kill the pirates and put their boats out of action? It would protect the lives of the crew and save a lot of money in rescue efforts since the ship will not be hijacked.
