While people like the gun grabbing billionaire Michael Bloomberg go around the country trying to disarm Americans, these short-sighted liberals are completely clueless about what is about to happen. Every time a tragedy occurs, especially if it involves children, the gun grabbers ascend on the area like Al Sharpton at a race-bait opportunity. They demand more laws that take away liberty from law abiding citizens completely ignoring the fact that the perpetrator du jour ignored existing laws in order to commit the crime the Bloomberg’s of the world are pretending to try to stop.
Well, pardon me for pointing out the obvious Bloombers, but my assessment of the threats we potentially face indicate most of us are severely unprepared and inadequately armed for the challenges on the horizon.
While no one wants to see another school shooting or theater massacre except terrorists, the only defense is to arm yourself as the first line of defense until authorities can respond, which takes time. A gun is like a fire extinguisher. They are often necessary to prevent greater damage. And like the old saying goes, when seconds count, the police are minutes away.
But with the revelation last week from Barack Obama that we do not have a plan or a strategy to deal with ISIS – the new Islamic State – that has declared war on all non-Muslims combined with the wide open borders that Attorney General Eric Holder and Obama have created, logic tells us that the isolated school and theater shootings are about to become insignificant.
ISIS can easily slip across our southern border whenever they wish and our government is doing nothing to stop them. They are not even trying to slow them down. The obvious reason is that Hispanics vote for Democrats and the next part of the plan is US Citizenship. And it is impossible to screen future Democrats from current terrorists without tipping a racial preference hat. And now that identification is no longer required for entering the country there is absolutely no way to even pretend we are secure.
And you don’t have to be Nostradamus to understand the abundance of soft targets we have here in America.
And what are our soft targets? And how can a potential terrorist tell?
Easy. Any gun free zone is a soft target ripe for maximum casualties before anyone can stop them. And like idiots, we proudly display this invitation on the doors to places like Buffalo Wild Wings, who recently made news for their anti-gun policy. And this illogical paranoia over guns has opened legal questions and challenges against the anti-gun businesses.
In Aurora, Colorado, the scene of the theater shooting by yet another psychotic gunman (which is usually the case) Cinemark, the owners of the gun prohibited theater is finding out that if you do not allow patrons to protect themselves that you are in all likelihood you may be held responsible for the actions of a killer like James Holmes. There is a court case pending a verdict in the Aurora theater case. And depending on how that verdict comes down, businesses that have outright banned customers exercising their second amendment rights or even simply requested that customers disarm before entering the premises may be forced to rethink the equation. If the responsibility is on the owner to provide protection when they do not allow weapons or face a lawsuit in the event of an incident, the losses due to offending customers are only a small part of the financial calculation.
But gun free schools and establishments like Target, Starbucks and Buffalo Wild Wings are not the only soft targets.
Malls, concerts and even airport ticket counters on busy days are all soft targets. And when the terrorist is unconcerned with his or her own life, the threat is not something we are used to dealing with in America.
The fear of dirty bombs and the material to make them walking boldly across our border is a real concern and a clear and present danger. The larger cities are prime targets, but every city and town in America is threatened by these crazed Muslims intent on inflicting damage to America.
And how will this change everyday life?
The inevitable fallout from a terror attack on US soil will be the same as 9/11 or every attempt since. Less freedom and more government.
Prior to the 9/11 attacks you were allowed to carry box cutters on a flight. The terrorists found a weakness and exploited it. So the security personnel doing the screening on 9/11 didn’t fail to do their job. The government failed to have a plan that analyzed the potential threat of these same Muslims that are still out to kill us today. But even though the security failure was not due to security itself, but to the government policies that allowed box cutters we scrapped the private security and created the Transportation Security Administration – the TSA. Ironically, government failure led to the 9/11 attack and the answer was more government in the form of the TSA. We rewarded failure and now must subject ourselves to intrusive searches and humiliating procedures just to catch a flight.
So when terrorists cross our border from Mexico and open fire in a school, mall or other “safe” place, will the government get the blame for failing to have an ISIS plan?
Hell no! In all likelihood the TSA will be expanded into the National Security Administration charged with running naked scanners and cavity searches at every mall in the nation. We always cover up our government failures with more intrusive government.
And the outcry will finally be loud enough to finally secure the border with even more government troops.
And just like the school and theater shooters, terrorists will ignore any and all gun laws to kill us.
So if anyone tells you yo do not need high powered weapons to defend yourself, all I can say is wait until the terrorists that Obama is letting the southern revolving door have their say. And that day is fast approaching. A leaking and wide open border, a president that pretends Islam has been “hijacked” by a few radicals and is otherwise a peaceful religion, an Attorney General who is not concerned with any crimes that do not involve a white man shooting a black man and a Secretary of State that is more interested in kiteboarding than protecting America.
And of course the most important thing to the current can find to do is play golf and give speeches to urge massive increases in the minimum wage.
If the Obama strategy is actually to make America so much of a joke that terrorists will see no reason to attack us, he is possibly succeeding in the first part of the plan.
But I don’t doubt the resolve of the terrorists and I understand that our government cannot and will not protect us. Why should they? After the inevitable disaster happens they will see larger budgets, more government workers and far more power.
And those of us that survive the attacks to come will be victims of both the terrorists and an intrusive government.
