Bad Policy Enables Terrorist Attacks

posted on July 21, 2015

With 35 members of the military killed and more than 50 others wounded during President Obama’s tenure in office, the continued, enforced defenselessness of our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines while on duty is simply unconscionable.

How it got to be this way is now immaterial. We know that terrorist organizations are recruiting disaffected American Muslims. We know these so-called “lone wolf” attacks are much harder to predict and stop. And we know that firearms are not the only methods these killers can and will employ. But such incidents can be made manifestly more difficult to carry out without any assault on the Second Amendment: End that mandatory defenselessness, particularly for those already trained to protect themselves and others. The president has already issued something like 221 executive orders, and #222 should be along these lines.

And don’t kid yourselves—this works, as the Israelis have been proving for the best part of 40 years.
