    I guess WTC didn't kill enough people for you to think that it's a problem that needs to be addressed and not ignored.

    We can't kick them out, and we cannot deny them their rights under the law. Most Muslims are probably good people. But many have not assimilated in to American culture, so there is the very distinct problem of radical groups and lone-wolfs committing terrorist acts. If people don't think that we need to keep our eyes open and be aware, then they're just stupid.
    Dude, you are getting sanctimonious and that is a discussion killer. I never said i don't care, and I also mentioned situational awareness and the need to protect myself and my family.

    Further your blatantly azzhole comment to me about the deaths on 9/11 means I am done with you. Your idiocy has reached a bounds I no longer wish to deal with. Your military time also does not allow you to be a condescending azzhat to anyone that did not serve.

    Have a nice life.

      You'd also better start paying attention to the news and what's going on. You obviously don't know how many of these terrorist sympathizers are living in the US right now, maybe not far from where you live.

      I could go on, there are dozens more like this.
      The only aspect of any of this I said I did not care about was that it is the same people doing this overseas as it is here. That was in the context of my being concerned more with terrorist attacks here in America. Simply because I am an American firefighter but I am not an American soldier. I hate what is happening over there but I have no professional role there. This is a firefighting forum. We discuss firefighting here in America. You have been inserting activity in the Middle East into this thread since the start. Maybe a military forum would be a better choice for you.

      I am very much aware of the ongoing terror threat here in my city and in this country. This city has been targeted multiple times and will continue to be targeted.

      Likely much more so than your guardrail.

        Your words pal. If you didn't mean them, guess you shouldn't have posted them. I won't lose any sleep over you.

            How do I respond to this? Have you read this entire thread? I suggest you go back and do just that. Maybe you can then understand the discussion.

              Dude you are either seriously delusional or a pathological liar because I never said I don't care.

              Sadly you have just become another one trick pony troll. Must be a pathetic existence.

                    As I have become to your inability to read, comprehend, and then put out a legible, rational response.

                    The fact that in your delusional haze you have confused your tirade on captnjak with me is no real surprise. But please do show me where I said I didn't care.

                      So what you're saying is you believe that I don't know who responds to domestic terrorist attacks? Just need to be clear on this.

                        It appears we're not all looking at the OP's original statement/question in the same light?

                        "I wonder how long it'll be before this happens over here."

                        I took this to mean someone stealing an ambulance and using as a VBIED as was the story in the link provided. Others seem to be taking on the larger question of how long before these terrorists start attacking us on a more local basis?

                        My answer to both:
                        Yes, we should be prepared to respond to mass casualty incidents from bombs of some sort.
                        No, I don't think emergency vehicles are a likely target and therefore wouldn't need specific measures.

                          I'm more worried about a bunch of idiot Trump supporters and their phallic assault style rifles. White males with guns have been the biggest perpetrators of domestic terrorism.
                          They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

                          I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

                            Not to mention white males with trucks full of explosives (two, anyhow) and furriners with airplanes (four).

                            I feel much more at ease in Trump country, where I know that the bulk of the gun owners know how to properly use their weapons than I would in, say, south Chicago... NY State has only a handful of hunting deaths each year. In 2014, only one was actually due to someone aiming at them and pulling the trigger, having mistaken the victim for a dear. The other three were accidental.

                            And London just surpassed NYC in the number of homicides this year. The bulk of which were committed with...... (wait for it).... knives.

                            But, back to the subject at hand - ambulances are stolen from time to time, although as yet none have been used for anything other than a getaway vehicle.

                              And yet statistically the misnamed "Assault Rifles" kill far less every year than drunk drivers and texting while driving. Where is the outcry over that?

                              Where are the protests, marches, and media wailing over the massive amounts of shootings and deaths in places like inner city Chicago? Why isn't that causing a media sensation? Where are the celebrities organizing against the violence? Where are the oh so important youth of today regarding school walkouts and their 15 minutes of fame on TV coming up with ideas to end that shooting gallery? Or doesn't inner city youth killing each other and other innocent inner city youth matter to anyone? Is it a race issue? Or just not politically charged enough for the phony gun grabbing leftist democrats?

                              I love listening to blathering idiots talk about their selective gun violence while completely ignoring other more rampant gun violence. The hypocrisy is as rancid as an open sewer.

                                I see it as a race issue (maybe an economic issue on my less cynical days). Every Monday morning the NY Daily News prints what amounts to a "roundup" of shootings that occurred the prior weekend. The locations are almost always in minority neighborhoods. There is rarely a weekend when this does not occur. The article generally appears around 10-20 pages into the paper. Young black men killing each other apparently is not newsworthy.

                                I think there is a difference between high powered/high velocity rifles and knives or cell phones or vehicles, all of which contribute to deaths. These rifles were originally conceived, designed, manufactured and sold with the purpose of killing large numbers of humans quickly. Not true about those other objects. There is very little demonstrable need for these type weapons in the public sector. Most people seem to buy them because they want them. They are cool. They are fun.

                                The fact that many laws have not been effective is not a valid reason to stop passing laws that we feel can help. I think an age limit is wise. I think "bump stocks" should be out. I think real back ground checks are necessary. And yes, better compliance with the laws already on the books would be swell. The kid from FL was practically begging to be stopped. Yet no one did.
