One word: pliers!
Pliers can be used as a weapon and the shooting is justified.
Imagine a group of WWII vets being arrested for trying to visit the memorial! Does President Obama really want that public relations nightmare on his hands? Let’s hope so!
I predict that by Monday the wires will be replaced with chains and padlocks.
“One word: pliers!”
Assault pliers are not allowed in DC.
(I actually like another Freeper’s suggestion of buying a bunch of cheap wire cutters and passing them out to the WW2 vets as they visit the memorial.)
