    VA: Patriettes Will Fight Coming Terrorist Crime Wave
    ... We don't know what other kinds of violent crime these terrorist cells
    will try next in an attempt to continue to terrorize our country - suicide
    bombings, robberies, hostage situations? It's logical to assume these
    violent crimes are coming, but will America be caught off guard once again,
    unable to quickly respond to a new kind of crime wave? Some women in
    northern Virginia are not waiting around to be victims. When firearms
    training classes were announced that would take an average woman with no
    prior knowledge of guns to the point where she could file forms in a county
    office for a "concealed carry" permit, women came in droves. These
    "must-issue" permits will allow them to secretly arm themselves against
    terrorists or any other thugs who may come their way. It's an easy and safe
    way for citizens to contribute to homeland security. After three short
    sessions, 40 women of all ages and from all walks of life - grandmothers,
    stay-at-home moms, business women, heads of organizations, congressional
    staff members and even interns - have completed the training, each earning
    certificates of competency in the use and concealment of handguns. Grinning
    from ear to ear and waving bulls-eye targets as compelling evidence of
    their newfound skills, these women have decided that they will no longer
    live in fear of domestic or foreign terrorist threats. The Patrick Henry
    Center, in alliance with several other organizations - and in cooperation
    with the National Rifle Association, which supplies the formal classroom
    instruction as well as the firing range - has been working hard to get 100
    women trained and certified before the end of the year. Foundation
    president Gary Aldrich, a retired FBI agent, even calls upon his wife in
    some of the training sessions. "Nina was an FBI agent for 10 years and is
    still very accurate in her use of handguns or rifles. Once trained, it's
    like riding a bicycle - you never forget," Gary says. ...
