That’s important to remember. And it’s not just NC. Lots to worry about among the “sovereign citizen” groups out west. Like the Bundies and their co-nutcases.
Or, as mentioned earlier, just Americans with guns. From 2001 thru 2013, if we include 9/11, there were roughly 3300 Americans killed by foreign terrorists. During that same period of time, our fellow gun-toting citizens killed 407,000 Americans.
Logically, since we have limited resources to allocate, where should the bulk of them go, if “saving American lives” is the criterion?
Of course, there are other areas of preventable death to tackle, like cigarettes. They kill more than 400,000 Americans a year, and 40,000 non-smokers, so if we’re going to triage things . . .
