"Americans need guns in face of the lone wolf terrorist threat," gun rights expert John M. Snyder noted here today.

"Authorities for some time have been warning about the possibility of lone wolf terrorists attacking targets within the United States," Snyder added. "What better protection against that possibility could there be than the armed American citizenry ready, willing and able to resist such attacks?"

In early May, Homeland Security chief Janet Napolitano discussed the possibility of a terrorist striking within the United States to avenge Osama bin Laden, taken out by U.S. Navy SEALS in Pakistan.

"One source of concern is what is called 'the lone wolf,'" she said in a CBS News interview. "And a sole actor, who's not in contact with anyone – that's very difficult to prevent."

"Difficult to prevent indeed," said Snyder. "That's practically an admission that officials may be unable to prevent such a lone wolf attack. That's why an armed citizenry now is more needed than ever.

"We're fortunate in the United States to enjoy the individual Second Amendment civil right to keep and bear arms. We need it. We need to buttress it with as many legal protections as we can. Those who would weaken it ought to have their heads examined."
