Prime Targets

I remember those glorious post-9/11 days, when cable news would breathlessly report on Terra Threats to some random mall in kabumfuck, Kansas. As if. Of course bad shit can happen anywhere, and assholes with guns are everywhere, but I'm pretty sure that if there's some grand international terrorist plot then it isn't going to be focused on Hughes Springs, Texas. More assholes with guns shooting people? Quite likely.
An East Texas police chief is urging residents to arm themselves against terrorists after listening to President Barack Obama's Sunday night address to the nation.

Gun gropers will take any excuse to spend their retirement funds on more guns, but given stories that people have told me over the years, I'm pretty sure people in places like Hughes Springs, population 1760, really do believe the terraists are coming for them.
