If that is true, could you please explain what you are trying to say here:

Please, just please try to explain what you are trying to say.

...I wanted to yell out, "The only reason he's so calm and arrogant is because everyone around him is unarmed!"...

...In those shopping malls, an unassuming guy might pull out his revolver or pistol and FIGHT BACK...

...the Indian Government should simply announce that all Indian men will henceforth be required to train with and to carry a firearm. I think the terrorists would think twice if they knew they were about to enter an armed society...
What's your interpretation on that? The OP is littered with CCW references. It is not, however, littered with references to intelligence and analysis in prevention. I feel like I'm taking crazy pills over here. So please, devote some thought to this thread, maybe take a break, then come back and ELABORATE. I really want to know what you are trying to say, but you have not made it clear to me.

He is talking about running through a scenario where he is confronted by a terrorist attack. I mean, intelligence and analysis when it comes to prevention is not really the topic. Sounds like an average guy asking if we run through terrorism scenarios and what we plan to do in potential attacks to me.

No, maybe you need to clarify. Based on others' posts, I am not the only one that is confused. I only asked that you elaborate, and you did not. Please do so. Believe it or not, I am not some kind of idiot. Just saying, it happens to everybody, you post something and it makes since to you, but not to anybody else. It's no big deal, just a little more elaboration is necessary, you know, explain what you mean. That's what this is supposed to be, a discussion, and I (and others) are having difficulty interpreting your seemingly conflicting posts. All I'm asking for is explanation.
Luck runs out.
Boiler Up!
