    FERC Chairman Dubs .22 Rifles Terrorist Weapons

    Written by Admin on November 26, 2012

    The chairman of the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has provided aspiring terrorists with an idea – use a .22 rifle to take out power transformers.
    “There are ways that a very few number of actors with very rudimentary equipment could take down large portions of our grid,” FERC Chairman Jon Wellinghoff said at a Bloomberg Government breakfast in Washington last Friday. “I don’t think we have the level of physical security we need.”
    A would-be al-Qaeda miscreant “could get 200 yards away with a .22 rifle” could take down the power grid, Wellinghoff warned.

    I'll be the first to admit, I'm probably reaching a little bit with this article. I was online searching products to clean my .22LR and stumbled upon this article above. I normally sway away from articles like these especially since it isn't a reliable source. Just thought I would get that out first before members say that I am reaching a little too far. Anyways, I apologize ahead of time if anyone thinks that I'm reaching for an article, but it popped up along the yellow brick road I was walking.

    EDIT; record post for typing the word " article " the most?
