FERC Chairman Dubs .22 Rifles Terrorist Weapons

Infowars – by Kurt Nimo

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 Wellinghoffsaid 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.

Mr. Wellington did not provide an explanation why — over the last decade — the terrorist group has not targeted the power grid in the United States.

Bloomberg Government describes itself as a “single, comprehensive web-based information service for professionals who interact with or are impacted by the Federal Government.”

The notorious gun-grabber, New York mayor Michael Bloomberg, owns the online subscription-based service.

“Wellinghoff has managed to inject an anti-rifle scare into the energy debate that Bloomberg News, in thrall to its billionaire anti-gun zealot master, has the means to disseminate to the general public to manipulate and gin up the fear needed in order for planned ‘solutions’ to be introduced,” writes David Codrea.

    Ridiculous.Absolutely absurd.A 22 rim fire rifle would do anything but piss someone off if they were shot with it.Terrorist weapon my ass.

    • Henry Shivley says:

      More people are killed with .22s every year than any other caliber. I have killed a lot of deer with a .22 as far out as 150 yards. I like .22s. The reason they are being attacked is because they are affordable and it is a cheap endeavor to become an expert marksman with any caliber using only a .22 to reach that level. I also like the .22 because it is quiet.
      Is the .22 a terrorist weapon? Well if we patriots are to be considered terrorists, then okay, call it what you will and, like the rest of our guns/terrorist weapons, if you think you can take them, give it go and see what happens.

      • diggerdan says:

        Not only as you mentioned, but a 22 can be used for other things like taking out comunication antenas, shooting out tires, those glass insulators on telephone poles – there are a lot of things that a 22 or other small caliber gun could be used for. Heck, I have shot some realy powerful pellet guns – for what they are – eariler this year, I was supprised how powerful the one was that I shot.

    • robertsgt40 says:

      I’m surprised he didn’t claim a pellet gun could do the same.

    Now the commies in charge can shut down the grid and blame it on some kid with a 22, er I meant alCIAduh. And with the recent “gas” explosions, they can drop a 500lb bomb on anything they want and blame it on natural gas. and most amerikans are stupid enough to believe their lies! Putin is right!!!

  3. Ben says:

    We can’t even find .22 ammo here anymore.When we do,it’s outrageously priced.

    “A would-be al-Qaeda miscreant “could get 200 yards away with a .22 rifle” could take down the power grid, Wellinghoff warned.”

    WHAT THE F**K ARE THEY TALKING ABOUT???!!!! Where did this completely absurd issue and accusation come from all of a sudden now? Just one day they wake up and say, “HEY, I have an idea! Let’s get rid of .22 rifles by saying an Al-Qaida terrorist could use it against us.” Are you F**KING KIDDING ME?? Do these people just sit around all day coming up with lame ass stories like this one as an excuse to take away our rights. I mean this is beyond pathetic. BEYOND PATHETIC!!!!

    How about we just ban hunting knives too, because if we don’t it will be easier for Al-Qaieda to cut power lines and scratch metal? How about we ban farting because it will release too much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, be captured by Al-Qaieda and stored to make a stink bomb which could kill us all? How about we ban swimming underwater because
    Al-Qaieda are good swimmers and could destroy underwater facilities?

    Hey, I have an idea! How about we just ban all politicians and leaders because Al-Qaieda would always want to attack them? OH! That’s right, it only works as long as it benefits the politicians and leaders. I see how it is.

    • diggerdan says:

      No doubt NC. Just look at the number of people that could be killed just by going store to store and injecting some kind of nasty poisons in the meat or vegetable dept. Just think about the damage that some wacko could do, and by the time anyone would be aware of being poisoned or infected by a nasty disease it would be way to late. I am supprised something like this hasen`t been a major problem. Kind of gives me the creeps just thinking about how deviously sneaky people can be.

  5. NC says:

    I guess the U.N. Small Arms Treaty is kicking into high gear. We won’t take away your rights to own a firearm, but if it causes problems with the security of the country, we will ban it and it will please the UN and its laws (even though Americans are not subject to follow them in any way under the Constitution). It’s called finding a way around the contract. Obama’s trademark, of course.

    “Those who give up freedom for security, deserveth neither.” Benjamin Franklin.

  6. Jeff_T says:

    The next thing they`ll try to ban will be straws because Al-Qaieda could shoot someone in the eye with a spit wad.

  7. # 1 NWO Hatr says:

    There is only one ban that I would support 100%.

    A ban on ALL gun bans of ANY kind.

    • NC says:

      How about a ban on ALL Zionists and corporations?

    • Large Scale Aggressor says:

      Even if you could eliminate every firearm on the planet how would that help anyone? Were people safer a thousand years ago? No, they were less safe since the bigger guy with a big club will always win the fight. My grandmother in her wheelchair can take out the big guy with her .38.

      “God made man but Mr Colt made them equal.”

      Firearms are one of the most important inventions in history.

      • # 1 NWO Hatr says:

        Why would I even want to eliminate every firearm on the planet?

        Perhaps you misread my comment. I’m for NO bans on guns of ANY kind.

  8. Ben says:

    Guess I gotta go turn myself in.I own a .22 and I guess that makes me a terrorist my association.

    The only reason so many people are killed by .22 caliber is because the damn things have sold by the billions and they’re cheap,or were cheap.

  9. grego says:

    Come and get them OBdumbass if you got the brass ones to do it, just 1% of gun owners can take care of this nonsence,so pull the triger and see how it turn out for you… man this guy that sit in the WH is a real losser…

  10. NC says:

    Banning .22 rifles because Al-Qaida terrorists could attack the transformers and take out the power grid.

    BAHAHAHAAHAAHAAHA!!!!! I’m sorry, but name one time a REAL terrorists had EVER used a .22 rifle to blow up a building or take out an entire power grid or anything for that matter. That doesn’t even come close to fitting their M.O.

    HELLO!!!!! It’s not rocket science, people. Even a sheeple would know THEY USE BOMBS, YOU INDUSTRIAL DUMBASSES!!!!!!

    Is a .22 rifle a bomb?? I don’t think so!!!

    .22 rifles for terrorists? HA! What a joke. I wasn’t born yesterday, scumbags.
