I have told many friends that I believe that there is a major shift taking place in how people are being defined in this country. No longer do we really hear about the radical Islamists in the media, but rather we are hearing about how the National Rifle Association is a terrorist organization or how Christians or people that believe in the Constitution or those that believe in the Second Amendment are the real terrorists in America. Well now, that is being put into practice.
WSAZ reports that a mock training exercise in which an operation was conducted near Municipal Stadium in Portsmouth on Thursday. The drille involved a dead science teacher and weapons of mass destruction.
The Ohio Army National Guard and responders in hazmat suits played out the drill.
According to WSAZ:
The mock disaster training exercise is being done with Scioto County first responders and the Ohio Army National Guard 52nd Civil Support Unit.
"It's the reality of the world we live in," says Portsmouth Police Chief Bill Raisin. "Don't forget there is such a thing as domestic terrorism. This helps us all be prepared."
The make-believe scenario is timely. Two school employees who are disgruntled over the government's interpretation of the Second Amendment, plot to use chemical, biological and radiological agents against members of the local community.
Has there been an event that this is based on? Not to my knowledge. In fact, if Ohio would have been honest in this scenario, they would have simply had their people standing around, because those of us who differ with this administration's interpretation of the Second Amendment would not engage in a preemptive attack that would endanger the lives of our fellow Americans.
