If we should all learn one thing from the attacks in Mumbai, it is that we are not immune to such attacks. It would be quite easy for a dozen terrorists with AK-47s and grenades to wreak similar havoc in the US. I personally think that we will not make it to the end of 2009 without a similar attack happening here. Biden was right, these nuts are going to test Obama. They want to see how much they can get away with, and what a liberal pacifist will do in response. If anything.
We are a very free society. We love our freedom. We have our subways and our busses and our cars and our malls and our busy streets. Terrorists aimed on killing could gun down hundreds of Americans in mere minutes in our busiest cities. All the more reason we should not just allow, but PROMOTE concealed carry. There are only so many police, and in the time it takes them to respond to armed gunman lives are already lost on a massive scale.
Sadly, the liberals we just elected are going to do anything they can to prevent and prohibit law-abiding Americans from owning and carrying firearms. They are going to make us even more susceptible to attack, and much more complacent victims. But when the terrorist attacks like the one in Mumbai come to America, I hope we all wake up and see just how different the outcomes would be with an armed populace. Just a few people with the ability to defend themselves can save dozens, if not hundreds of lives.
America should wake up and realize that we are not immune to attacks such as these. And not only are we not immune, but we are the ultimate target. The grand prize for terrorism. They are on their way.
