    Armed Citizens an answer to Terrorism?

    Armed Citizens an Answer to Terrorism? The head of INTERPOL says they might be. | Buckeye Firearms Association
    The head of the international police organization INTERPOL created a minor stir recently when he suggested that armed civilians might be a more realistic answer to the evolving trend of terrorists attacking "soft targets" like shopping malls, schools, and public events, than trying to "harden" those areas with more physical barriers and police officers. While the comments have been picked up by some conservative media and the rights movement, they have been roundly ignored by the traditional media, not just in the US, but worldwide. You can bet that his comments won't be ignored by the statist authorities at the UN and the White House though. I think it is very likely that this very prominent, popular, and effective law enforcement official will soon find himself under fire for all sorts of seemingly unrelated matters, and in a relatively short time, be looking for a new job. It is simply not politically acceptable for anyone within the "circle of trust" to be trusting of the common people. Taking a public position in favor of armed civilians over expansion of police presence and powers is unlikely to go unpunished.
    Exclusive: After Westgate, Interpol Chief Ponders 'Armed Citizenry' - ABC News
    Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said today the U.S. and the rest of the democratic world is at a security crossroads in the wake of last month's deadly al-Shabab attack at a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya and suggested an answer could be in arming civilians.
    In an exclusive interview with ABC News, Noble said there are really only two choices for protecting open societies from attacks like the one on Westgate mall where so-called "soft targets" are hit: either create secure perimeters around the locations or allow civilians to carry their own guns to protect themselves.
    "Societies have to think about how they're going to approach the problem," Noble said. "One is to say we want an armed citizenry; you can see the reason for that. Another is to say the enclaves are so secure that in order to get into the soft target you're going to have to pass through extraordinary security."
    Ronald Noble - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Ronald Kenneth Noble (born 1956, at Fort Dix, New Jersey) is an American law enforcement officer, and the current Secretary General of INTERPOL.
    He is a 1979 graduate of the University of New Hampshire with a bachelor's degree in economics and business administration in the Whittemore School of Business and Economics and a 1982 graduate of Stanford Law School. Noble also is a tenured professor at the New York University School of Law, on leave of absence while serving at INTERPOL.
    Personally I find it interesting that an American reelected to the position twice (last time unanimously) now finds himself in this kind of position. Would you not realize, having been elected to your post that it is politically oriented in nature, would you not realize that speaking out for arming citizens would be against the NWO and the political trends within your home country. IMO this man feels that contrary to public belief arming citizens is in fact the right move no matter what the personal cost is to him at home or abroad.
    Taking a stand on principles can be costly and detrimental in many ways. Taking this enormous stand may be disastrous, but doing it publicly may be his only saving grace. There have to be a lot of citizens in the world who agree with his views and may be the seed needed to start something bigger politically than his statements about arming citizens. We will have to wait and see.

    It's not that Interpol's chief is necessarily smarter than the obama administration, it's just that he does not have the agenda that obama has.
    He's right, of course. But this man is not trying to conquer a country or impose martial law or become a dictator. Therefore armed citizens naturally make sense to him.

    Noble is also an American.

    The fact that we have an armed citizenship has been the single biggest deterrent against foreign invaders for years. Terrorism, like all other crimes, works best when citizens are unarmed.
