According to TPM this morning, “A Louisiana sheriff plans to arm volunteers with shotguns, riot shields, batons, and a .50-caliber machine gun mounted on a “war wagon,” as part of “Operation Exodus,” a program to provide security in the event of a terrorist attack or civic unrest. “It’s a calling,” he says.”
He’s doing this with local guys who – from this picture and the video at the link – appear to have reached military age.
Okay, I know this is harmless and maybe a little sweet, even civic and upright. But Homeland Security it is not. And I am amused. Which is, after all, the most important thing.
