    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.

    If they hit a mall in The US with a Bass Pro Shops in it, they are apt to be in for a lil surprise, lol.

    Malls are just one of a multitude of available soft targets here in the USA.

    No, they will be sticking to the CPZs when they bring their next act to the US.

    Malls aren't gun free zones here though...they will most likely pick easier targets

    When I go to a mall, I usually go to Clackamas Town Center. There are a LOT of people carrying at the malls here, now.

    Not all malls are gun friendly, and many malls are in non-gun friendly states. An attack would most likely occur where it is least likely for citizens to be able to defend themselves.

    With my luck they'll find me tactically covering in the darkness - or cowering, which ever you prefer - in the young skinny boy section over at the Abercrombie and Fitch listening to a guy named Wendell tell me how he was voted homecoming queen at his high school and how he wants to make the world free for free people.

    Wendell's a lucky dude to have a guy like me around.

    Jeeze, could the good guys hurry up already...

    If they do decide on the mall route, they'll likely pick one in New York where any CCer's would only have 7 rounds and cops would have to empty an entire mag to hit the wall behind them, essentially doing their job for them. But on a serious note, in this kind of scenario, any CCer would be seriously outgunned and would serve a better purpose of facilitating evacuation, unless they start making burst fire MP7's available to the general public. (Just got through Brad Thor's "Foreign Influence". Awesome book.) IMO.

    When they do attack, it will just a likely be schools or school buses as shopping malls, and it will be equally likely that they will be using five-gallon cans of gasoline and Rugers as RPGs and semtex. Look at Beslan and Mumbai to get a preview of their game plan for us.

    Katy Mills Mall in Katy, Texas (just outside of Houston) has the 30.06 signs up in the mall entrances. But there is a Bass Pro Shops in the mall as well; which does not have the sign.

    Anyone want to guess what is the busiest entrance :)
