Once again trying to play on peoples fears the anti's are now saying handguns are the major terrorist threat.
I just don't understand people...

I think law abiding citizens with a handgun are the perfect anti-terrorist threat ;)
I am sworn to protect the Constitution of the U.S.A. from all threats both foreign and domestic.
Hmmm.....suspects on a terror watch list can buy a gun? Just who adjudicates that list and if you are "accidentally" added to the list, how do you get off the list?
"suspects" have not been charged or convicted of committing any crime. Maybe that is one thing these "editors" forgot--due process. How would they like it that they are added to "a list" which prohibits them from speaking in public or writing/posting on the internet?
How many times have we heard about people with similiar names to that of suspected terrorists are on "the list"? How about the 4 year old who was on the watch list and was prohibited from flying with his family?
Should individuals have their rights administratively taken away because some gov't drone added a name to a list? without due process or appeal?
Ah...but the editorial is in NYC--it explains the lunacy.

That "opinion" is about as far from reality as they reporter claims the Government is for not instituting more gun control.
Its not rocker surgery, to figure out that the more armed good guys there are the less likely some punk will act.
Terrorists want to terrify....and they usually pick soft targets to do their deeds.
Schools,crowded ,markets, synagogues or any place were people gather in mass.
If they even suspect that someone will cap them before they can act they will move somewhere else where there is no danger.
The writer is displaying a sheep mentality and using his fear of handguns and the word terrorist to further his agenda of disarmament.
Come to think of it...what else would we expect from a reporter in NYC?
Universal Background Checks...the next step towards registration and confiscation.

Ummm, what??More American civilians died in the Virginia Tech gun rampage than were killed by terrorists worldwide in the entire year of 2006.
As for the terrorist watchlist. Just saw an article today where it has ballooned to over 700,000 people, whereas three years ago it was around 150,000.

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
ridiculous. If a home-grown terrorist needs a gun, there are plenty of avenues to get one illegally, the same way home-grown gangs and criminals pick them up.
I'm always amazed how quick certain people are to equate accusation (or even just surveillance!) with guilt, and call for the denial of their rights. It's all well and good until it's your head on the chopping block, right?
He got one thing right, though.
So, which one of these is the easiest to eliminate from society? hmmmmmmmmmmm. I say again: HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.But as the Virginia Tech case illustrates, all one needs is an abundant amount of reload ammunition, a densely populated soft target, and the will to kill to produce dozens of deaths in just minutes.
"A well-educated electorate, being necessary to the continuance of a free state, the right of the people to keep and read books shall not be infringed."
Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?
Ah yes, the gun show, were everybody can purchase a gun or WMD w/o any background check!!!For that matter, unlicensed dealers are, under some circumstances, permitted to sell guns without a background check. Want to buy a gun without drawing attention? Just go to a gun show.
I think this whole page was written by the Brady bunch themselves.
If people like this had there way, "a densely populated soft target" would be everywhere!!!The death toll in those cases never reached the double-digits. But as the Virginia Tech case illustrates, all one needs is an abundant amount of reload ammunition, a densely populated soft target, and the will to kill to produce dozens of deaths in just minutes.

Idiots like this lose credibility right here. He thinks nukes are worse than chemical or biological weapons. Yeah.. right.When we conjure up images of the terrorist threat to America, it usually involves chemical, biological or, God forbid, nuclear weapons.
I got two more paragraphs in before I nearly puked. I have no tolerance left for people who blindly believe drivel like this.
