You Might Be A Terrorist If…
…you’re a Soldier and you don’t register your PRIVATELY OWNED WEAPON!! According to a posting on the AR15.com message board, Fort Benning is host to the following sign:
This is quite disturbing, if true. Are you a terrorist? Funny. I always thought terrorism involves a criminal act that is often symbolic in nature and intended to influence an audience beyond the immediate victims. I didn’t realize that exercising constitutional rights to own firearms had been amended into the definition.
This seems to follow the recent Department of Homeland Security report released in April of this year that declared that returning combat veterans may form “terrorist groups” or become “lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.” Nothing in the report pointed to the numerous reports of SEIU, Black Panther, and ACORN thugs that were threatening voters at the polls last year.
