house Bill H.R. 5399

Should Homeland Security Grants be Used to Prepare for WMD, Biological or Chemical Attacks?

Argument in favor

Domestic readiness to respond to WMDs and biological or chemical attacks is critical, and this bill provides state and local governments with the funding and support they need to ensure preparedness.

You mean it’s not already? WTF? Get on with it. I lived in Guam, the first US target for the crazies of North Korea, when 45 was raising hell and we were put at risk. The Pacific states and island territories need more than lip service protection from non-traditional attacks.

WMD-must, most necessarily, include Cybersecurity. Isn’t this the more immediate threat to our National Security? Do you really fear a Ballistic Missile, Tanks, Adversary Aircraft? Think how vulnerable our Election apparatuses are. And we always have elections on the horizon.

Yes , preparedness is the best and only solution to preventing tragedies or mitigating one. Whether it’s civil, military or whatever. Being prepared with training has always been the best solution. #MAGA

Argument opposed

The Department of Defense claims that it is already working with civil authorities to ensure domestic response capabilities for a range of attacks, including all types of WMDs and chemical or biological weapons.

The DHS should be eliminated. The department of the interior does all that already.

No, there is more than enough money to be used from the military budget.

    How about spending that money on health care and illness prevention. Poor health is a greater threat to our nation than any terrorist.

    Why would it not! Sounds like the perfect reason for Grant money usage. For those that are in question, read some of the idiotic opposed comments first. Some even mention no because "locals should get the training". THATS EXACTLY WHAT THIS STATES! All facet of the grants may in this type of training. Unbelievable!

    Let the state be responsible for training. It's a local matter.

    Cybersecurity is more of a concern. Divert the money already there to strengthen and protect the core of our democracy, our election process.

    Let the locals get the train instead. There are already too many government agencies. It's time to trim the fat and put the states back in charge.

    "The future belongs to the those who prepare for it today. " I feel in this climate, it's good to have this opportunity for state and local governments have the resources and support to prepare for any attack that may come our way.

    We see these being used around the world so it would behoove us to be prepared. More than likely someone will try to use it against us.

    As long as this doesn’t mean more big brother “toys” for law enforcement, I’d be okay with this passing.

    I’m against anyone who opposes this bill. I just wonder if they would be opposed to this same bill IF it were put forth by their party. I doubt it.....
