NYC has stepped up security at spots in the city - including the subway (the picture above was taken at the Grand Central subway station). This is a response to the recent suicide bombings in Moscow.
I realize this is necessary, but seeing armed guys with machine guns makes me feel uneasy - not safe. I absolutely HATE guns, and seeing this makes me feel like I'm living in a war zone. Which, I guess, I am.
Let me ask you ... would armed soldiers in your city/town make you feel safer from the threat of terrorism?
