Terrorists can strike any time, anywhere: Self defense saves lives

Terrorists can strike anywhere and at any time, giving them a huge strategic advantage.Unfortunately, too many politicians around the world are refusing to admit this.

After the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris earlier this month, France placed 10,000 uniformed soldiers in front of Jewish sites across the country. Unfortunately, this is unlikely to be very effective.

Israel learned this lesson the hard way. For several decades after its founding, Israel responded by putting more soldiers and armed police on the streets. Unfortunately, a mass killer can wait for officers to leave the scene or to kill the uniformed officers first. No matter how much money Israel spent, terrorists could wait patiently until they see an opening to attack.

Since at least 1950, every single mass public shooting in Europe (and all but two of the ones in the US) has occurred in gun-free zones.

INTERPOL recently came out and siad that perhaps it would be a good idea to allow people to be armed. Whether anything comes of that remains to be seen. I'm unconvinced anything will change.
