No joke...

I got a real surprise today when I went to my mailbox.

I received a booklet from Gov. Tom Ridge and the Department of Homeland Security titled "Preparing Makes Sense -- Get Ready Now".

It briefly covers the basics of what to do in case of a terrorist attack.

Of course, I could not find any mention of FIREARMS in reference to family self-defense.

:banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Has anyone else received this homeland security booklet?

Is the government sending it to everyone, or was I just lucky!

:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Uhm? David? Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but maybe Gov.Ridge knows something we don't... and it's gonna happen in your neighbourhood...:p

I guess you were just lucky. Wonder if they'll send it to everybody.

They don't mention firearms because it could be dangerous.

They don't let soldiers have ammo because of accidental shootings. Just imagine what would happen if a bunch of untrained citizens were armed to the teeth! Negligent discharges galore, and the terrorists wouldn't have to kill us because we're killing ourselves. There are a bunch of idiots out there who are best left unarmed for their own and our safety.

David,
Wouldn't it be weird if you were the only person that he sent that to?

I can't believe it that, so far, it appears no other THR member has received this homeland security booklet!

:confused: :confused: :confused:

It's a 12 page, full color booklet that according to its postmark, was sent out of Cincinnati, Ohio.

It opens with a quote from Gov. Tom Ridge:

"Terrorism forces us to make a choice. We can be afraid. Or we can be ready."

:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Maybe there is going to be a terrorist attack on you specifically.

David, apparently some computer deep in the bowels of the Pentagon has determined that you are our single best hope to survive a catastrophy, and emerge to procreate, keeping the American way alive in the brave new world.

Good luck with that! ;)

Hey, I got a brochure from Ridge, too. In it he says that I should get the new S&W 500 Magnum revolver, the M1A and scope I have always wanted, a fully tricked out Bushmaster, range finder, brandy-new night vision goggles and a ton of ammo. Going to show it to the wife before I put the order together.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.:cool:
