Give veterans guns

If Congress would just use good sense, it would issue national permits to carry a concealed firearm to all our trained veterans.

Then we would have an immediate in-country back up for any terrorist attack and probably a ready-made, trained defense mechanism for random terrorism.

With about 22 million veterans, eliminating those unable to qualify for disability or age or mental illness would still give us a patriot army of trained men and women.

Maybe next time an inside terrorist group hatches a plan without our Intel knowing, there may be two or three trained, armed veterans around to foil them.
