If you are reading this, then you are probably the type of person who would be willing to fight back against a terrorist attack using your guns.
The fact is that more and more terrorist attacks are going to be occurring on American soil because the “Global War on Terror” includes the USA now.
That means, if you have a gun and you carry it (as you should), you ought to put some thought into how you would fight back against a possibly suicidal team of terrorists who is intent on racking up the biggest body count possible.
Here’s a fact: terrorists love bombs.
Terrorists Love Explosives Because They’re Very Effective
Explosives can kill a LOT of people all at once. Especially in a crowded area. That’s why terrorists like them.
In Greg Ellifritz’s excellent article “Armed Citizen Response To Terrorist Bomber” he points out how deadly bombs are (emphasis mine):
“Time, distance, and shielding are the only defense. Realize that a 20lb suicide bomb vest loaded with shrapnel is dangerous within 400 meters. That’s a long distance!Recent research has determined that 15 meters (about 50 feet) is the distance that means the difference between life and death in most suicide bombing incidents. If you are within 15 meters of the bomber when he detonates, you will likely die. If you are beyond 15 meters, you will likely live, but may be seriously injured. Ultimately, whether you live or die depends on the terrain, the type of bomb and shrapnel and how far away from the bomb you are. The farther away you can get, the better off you will be. Ideally, distance combined with some type of cover that will stop shrapnel and projectiles is best. “
So terrorists today like to use a combination of guns and explosives.
How can you be more prepared?
If You Are Going To Fight Back, You Need To “Shoot Them In The Face”
Watch this (graphic) video below to see a hero cop that responded to one of the terrorists in the recent Istanbul Airport Attack. The cop shoots him, the terrorist drops and his rifle falls away and the it appears the officer then realized the terrorist had a bomb of some sort and the policeman tries to run away. As I understand it the officer was still killed.
