The American Dream, Now with 100% More Mandatory "civil defense" training

In an interview with Ben Smith of the NY Daily News, Rahm Emanuel (Obama's White House chief of staff) chuckled and brushed off plans for mandatory civil defense training. The Daily News has more, but first you've got to listen to this:

"Rather than figure out if you take a train ride or a barrack, think of it this way: it will be a common experience, and you'll be prepared. God forbid there's a chemical hit, there's another terrorist act, or a natural disaster (which are coming more frequent), there will be a body of citizens who are ready and capable and trained. That's all you have to think about. We're all here for you, okay? It's a circle of love."
A circle of love! Oh how I love my nanny state!

Here's another surprise: gun sales have shot up since the election. Why can't a presidential candidate flip-flop on a definitive Second Amendment case in the middle of a campaign without people wondering if he's serious about gun rights?
