FERC Chairman Dubs .22 Rifles Terrorist Weapons 22The 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 [1] 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.

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 [2].
