According to news reports, Vice President Dick Cheney yesterday shot a potential terrorist who snuck up behind him while he was hunting. Although there is no conclusive evidence that the 78-year-old man, Harry Whittington, has ties to Al Qaeda, I'm sure we can all agree with the Vice President that it's better to be safe than sorry. If radical gun control activists had succeeded in taking away our guns, this possible terrorist would not be in the hospital now but would be walking around among us free to attack other American citizens. Is there a better example of the protections afforded us by the Second Amendment? I hope the Vice President's quick action will stand as a stark warning to other potential terrorists out there that he is the kind of man who shoots first and asks questions later.
