Finally. An authority figure with real-life experience has stated that modern Islamic terrorism has changed the landscape, and the public must participate in their own defense. Liberal professors postulate, and Democrat politicians with security details wring their hands and insist that “safe zones” and “gun-free zones” will keep everyone safe from evil guns that apparently fire themselves.
Former Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble, who previously headed up all law enforcement for the U.S. Treasury Department, had a different take on how the public should respond to terrorism. He made his comments after last month's deadly al-Shabab attack at the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya, and suggested that the most logical answer might be the arming of civilians.
That undoubtedly will have liberals crying in frustration because it is the opposite of what they want to hear.
