My wife doesn't share my passion for protecting the 2nd amendment. Also, I don't think we should depend on the government to protect us. We must be prepared and willing to take up arms to defend ourselves.
Of course, in her smug manner, she pointed out, "I don't think the terrorist are planning to attack us here in Kansas."
I told her that she was probably right, but I still think it is wise to be ready to defend my family not only from domestic criminals, but terrorist too.
Maybe this sounds paranoid and maybe it is, but consider this.
Obama is closing Gitmo and Leavenworth Kansas is being considered as a location for the terrorist. How much of a reach is it to imagine the terrorist escaping and ending up in my backyard or being a magnet for other terrorist.
Consider that their buddies are housed in a Kansas prison, is it hard to imagine that other terrorist might come to Kansas to plot their escape or terrorist acts?
