    Does that really surprise you? A game like the Super Bowl would be a prime target for terrorists.

    Doesn't surprise me, but I know there are a lot of people that have issues with it and haven't heard about it.

    Not unexpected in very large public venues that would be a high profile target. Am I the only one that looks around and thinks "Yeah, I'd put one over there, and one up there....." ??

    Snipers have been at a lot of games over the last five years.
    I wouldn't worry about it to much. From what I understand State cops got it pushed through to fight "terrorist" activity. But usually the guy in the nest is just getting free box seats.

    I would be careful with the beers though. Little to much to drink & security shows up etc. Etc. etc. Especially if your on one of the many watch list. You never know you just might be a target of opportunity.

    What I was wondering was the caliber of the rifle.308, .338? Seems like that might have a high probability of collateral damages?
    Shooting though reenforced glass would rule out a lot of ammo, correct?

    I was thinking about that as well. The shooter would definitely hit someone else IMO and I think the rifle is a .338.

    I don't have a problem with having snipers at high-profile public events, as long as the snipers are the good guys. When it comes to terrorism we have to fight fire with fire. The only effective way to stop a terrorist is to kill one.

    My buddies and I went to a Motorcycle Swap-Meet last year on the Illinois side of the river and the police had gun-nests on top of the gas-station across the street ...Thinking the outlaw motorcycle clubs where going to have a shoot-out war with each other at the Swap-Meet....Hells-Angels where the main reason I'm guessing......

    It has to be done. No worries with that.

    I worry for the people in that FB post that worried about them being there, or even the need.
