    As INTERPOL general secretary, Ronald Noble said in 2013 that the ways to battle terrorism in “soft target” areas, such as shopping malls or movie theaters, is to erect secure safety perimeters or allow the citizens to carry their own guns, an “armed citizenry.” In an October 21, 2013 with ABC News [1], Noble said that mass terror attacks make “police around the world question their views on gun control. It makes citizens question their views on gun control.” “You have to ask yourself, 'Is an armed citizenry more necessary now than it was in the past with an evolving...

    The problem of forged or fraudulent passports in Europe – especially from the Middle East – is so bad that it has forced the U.S. government to warn five countries that they have until next week to act, or they will lose their visa-free travel rights. Interpol says there are 250,000 passports, mostly from Iraq and Syria, that have been lost or stolen in the last five years.  And that includes blank documents. Politico: American and European security officials speak of an “epidemic” created by a spike in demand from asylum-seekers — and from terrorists like those who carried...

    Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said today the U.S. and the rest of the democratic world is at a security crossroads in the wake of last month's deadly al-Shabab attack at a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya – and suggested an answer could be in arming civilians. In an exclusive interview with ABC News, Noble said there are really only two choices for protecting open societies from attacks like the one on Westgate mall where so-called "soft targets" are hit: either create secure perimeters around the locations or allow civilians to carry their own guns to protect themselves. "Societies have...
