    It IS scary. We've all heard about the recent calls for smaller attacks on American soil by American Al-Qaeda sympathizers from 2-3 punks like that freak from Northern California and the one supposedly in Yemen. If that starts to happen, all hell will break loose. Muslims will be scrutinized more than ever. It'll be, "shoot first and ask questions later". Then the non-terrorist Muslims will feel they have to arm themselves to feel protected. I live in a state with a "gun carry" law. Most that carry a gun here feel this way too. I know many that won't have any problem whipping it out if they feel threatened. The problem is that everyone will be so jumpy, 99% of incidents will be out of fear. Otherwise our thought is if anyone wants to die for 72 virgins we'll be happy to help make that a reality.
