    This is the place I bought my first rifle from when I was of age to do so myself.

    Not at all. My observation was a jumping off point, in my mind, to think about the expense of physical security.

    If someone dedicated to committing an act of terrorism is always going to be able to find a soft target, what's the point of engaging in massively expensive hardening efforts around things like the power grid? Sure, we should protect certain obviously assets. For example, the President should always have his very expensive security (though it's debatable if the current job holder can be classified as an "obvious asset"). But billions of dollars in infrastructure upgrades? I tend to wonder if the ROI would be positive.

    I freely admit I don't know but I think it's worth talking about.
    Practically, we cannot protect the entire grid.

    But some elements of the grid can cause much longer term downtimes. We probably should consider hardening critical substations, yet if anyone is determined they will still find a way.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was the FBI or some liberals. They tend to do shit and blame others i.e Juicy Mullett, LeBron James tagging his home, etc
