Gun control debate: Background checks
What does the new "terrorist" look like?
The DHS has recently purchased new targets for their training, along with 2 BILLION rounds of ammo. Most of you reading this are probably wondering why We care?
These new targets, made by a company called "Law Enforcement Targets, Inc" that was contracted by the DHS for $2.2 MILLION, are made to look like women, children, and elderly.
In fact, a provider of “realistic” shooting targets to the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies has created a line of “non-traditional threat” targets that include pregnant women, mothers in playgrounds and elderly American gun owners.
HOW IS THIS OKAY? Most anti-gun fanatics will probably say that it's okay because, in the world we live in, we have kids carrying guns to school. Let me then remind you: When we allow the government to shoot our children "without hesitation," we are then becoming no better than the nations we went to war with overseas whose terrorists decided it was okay to use children, moms, and dads as bomb carriers.
WHEN will we as the American people put our foot down and say "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH"?
Obama keeps going on and on about how we need to make our nation safe for our children, and yet our own government/federal employees who, may I remind you, are supposed to be PROTECTING our children, are making those very children into TARGETS to practice shooting "without hesitation".
Really, America? Are you REALLY okay with this?
