One of the biggest cities in the US is brought to its defenseless knees by a single terrorist. Is this the land of Paul Revere and the mighty colonial militia?
Thus are the penalties for a people who not only lack the will, but have foresaken the skills they had 250 years ago to defend themselves and their families.
Needless to say, this scenario would not be playing out in a community where gun ownership is still common. A terrorist who had the misfortune to enter a community in upstate NY or Pa would have had his eyeballs drilled by .300″ from 100 yards.
The Heros who fired The Shot Heard Around the World at Concord Bridge are certainly restless in their graves tonight.
UPDATE: What if the residents of this house shot with OO Buckshot instead of an Iphone? At 30 yards, the 48″ pattern would have been occupied by a dozen lethal projectiles . Two or three shots would have been certain death for both bombers saving Boston 12 hours of paralysis.
