A “Mumbai-style” Jihadist attack in the US would be:
- Easy to do
- Would trigger massive costs as every mall and shopping center in America spent billions to increase security! (whereas, the Jihadist spent four our five lives, as many AK 47’s and duffel bags, fifty magazines and $1,000 in 7.62 ammunition.)
But how would an Obama Administration respond? My guess would be to try to pass “emergency gun legislation” to confiscate every firearm from the hands of the public!
The Progressive “Alice in Wonderland” reasoning is “removing guns from the hands of the public makes the public safer” (as if this would deprive arms and explosives from reaching the hands of Jihadists, who could be supplied by Pakistani diplomatic pouch!)
“Carlos the Jackal” once said that “only a coalition of Islamists and Marxists can take down America.” A prerequisite is to disarm the American public at all costs! They know they can’t prevail if there are a hundred million Americans with firearms!
The reality is, that the more the citizenry is armed, the safer it becomes! If the Mumbai shooters encountered return fire at every turn, the death toll would have been far less. Remember the Jihad attack in a Utah shopping mall that was thwarted by an off-duty policeman who happened to be there and was able to take down the shooter.
In short, the Constitution and the rest of all our liberties primarily depend on the Second Amendment!
