On terrorism, we often are fighting the last war. And sometimes the supposed solutions have nothing to do with preventing future attacks. They just give the appearance that politicians are doing something.

Gun restrictions. 👻—� leave many innocent folks unable to defend themselves. While the Muslim terrorists and criminals are always armed to the teeth.

Ask a lib why they call the police when there is trouble. What makes the police authoritative in the situation?

Making the good people helpless will not make the evil people harmless.

But, that will never happen.
