It could happen anywhere there are haters and religious nuts. There used to be some really weird white supremacists in Macon County, probably still are.

Yes, Franklin has had several cases of arson, vandalism, stalking, bomb threats.

Don't forget about the "Freemen" movement. Their HQ and "supreme court" used to be right downtown, across from the courthouse. They hate the government, tax collectors, politicians, the UN, FBI, CIA, Girl Scouts (never could figure that one out), blacks, Asians, rich people, liberals - come to think of it, they don't like anybody very much.

And Otto sure has it's share of real fruit-loops running around. But they're more stupid than a threat.

And lest you need reminding, the world-wide center for Satanism is right in your own back yard! Mostly they "sacrifice" black cats but on one occasion near Robbinsville a few years ago, they carved up a girl’s face, chest and stomach pretty bad.

Don’t you people know what’s going on in your neck of the woods? Sounds like you don’t.

I have heard of some of these things. The old timers would choose not to believe it and I am one of them. Its easier that way. The new comers just stay in their vacation houses and don't care, it is not their problem. The elected officials are part of the problem as far as I can see. Help keep it all under wraps.

It's sad that you feel that way, but understandable.

The sheriff feels that way too. He wants more armed deputies to put in the schools and around town.

That's a politician pandering to public paranoia, pure and simple.

The only kind of terrorism that happens in Franklin is when the tourists come to town.

We have armed gaurds at: airports, malls, factories, clubs, disney world, etc...we have armed security details who take care of nearly all our higher up politicians...but having 1 armed cop, deputy or ex law enforcement or military is too expensive? Too crazy? Easy call folks. Keep our kids safe. Put an armed gaurd out front a sniper out back.

Yeah, Obama gives it all to the Armed Forces to blow holes in the bad guys when he should give it to you ass holes to shoot at paper targets while pretending you're big, bad Rambo saving the world from .. hell, somebody.

Did you know Sly ducked out to England to avoid being drafted and that he was never big enough to fight as a heavy-weight, not that the whimp ever fought anything or anybody?

Its not just regular folks having a hard time getting their hands on ammo slick. Both local and state law enforcement agencies have had a hard couple of years purchasing their regular ammo needs as well.

If that's true, which I doubt, it would be a budget problem, NOT availability.

Our department's budget has been flat for 5 years. Our chief stated that there has been an ammo shortage. Ammo companies are behind in trying to keep up with demand as well.
