Should we be concerned about the 5 released Gitmo prisoners?

I’m not. Not one iota.

BundyStandoffI’m much more concerned about the explosion of militia groups in the US, who believe they have the right to take the law into their own hands. I’m also concerned about the proliferation of guns in the hands of individuals, whose only intent seems to be to intimidate others, and return the US to the days of the Wild West, when everyone carried a gun, and we settled our disputes in the middle of the streets at High Noon.

But what I’m most concerned about is the support these individuals have received from the likes of the NRA and our elected representatives in congress, who rather than address the divisions building in this country, are actually flaming the fires of discontent, creating more divisive issues (where none existed before) in order to further their agenda,¬†and destroy what has taken nearly 250 years to create.

No, I’m not concerned at all about any outside terrorist threat, when the internal threat to our safety and our well being is so real. Al Qaeda and the Taliban don’t have to attack us. All they need to do is sit back and watch as the US tears itself apart from within.
