The devil is working overtime, yet many good people are not working part time on preparing to deal with evil.

Stay alert folks.

Be honest, fair, and always prepared...

They are already here. One problem they may have... at least in some states... is that a large number of American civilians are armed -- unlike many countries in Europe.

There isn't much those armed civilians could do about a car or truck ramming into them. But some slug yelling Alluah Akbar and waving a knife is likely to experience the same fate they do in Israel... gunned down pretty quickly.

But... it will come here. Be prepared.

More in some locations than others, but I believe we are drifting in that direction. To the point where the greater danger might be the stray rounds from the knife wielding Jihadi being shot by some combination of LEO's, CCW, and open carriers.

I foresee a great many such vehicle-borne attacks, because it's cheap, and relatively easy to do, especially with our normal USA "normalcy bias".
I wouldn't be shocked at all to see multiples of lone wolf type knife-slashing style attacks. However, I look to see both types of attacks in more Second Amendment "restrictive" municipalities and states. (For obvious reasons that the more politically correct will never ever be able to comprehend)

Sounds like the Barcelona jihadist cell was planning an explosives attack of some kind; but that plan imploded when they accidentally blew themselves up.

With their explosives gone, the remaining jihadis shifted to the vehicle and knife attacks as the best they could do with what they had.

They can always come up with a new way to kill people. The only way these attacks are gonna stop is if there stops being jihadis in our midst.

Not every Muslim is a terrorist; but 99% of the terrorists are Muslims.... and every place in Europe where the Muslim population has reached 'critical mass' has started experiencing these attacks.

Since there appears to be no way to tell the 'good Muslims' from the 'bad Muslims'--- and since the 'good Muslims' somehow never seem to notice the 'bad Muslims' in their midst--- keeping them all out would seem to be our only way of keeping the same thing from happening here.

Yes, our diversity would suffer.... but I'm convinced we could find a way to somehow manage without them....
