So the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department wants $730,000 to purchase a new boat for homeland security and patrol purposes.
I would like to propose a less expensive solution to the County Council: cannons!
They can be purchased at any Army-Navy surplus outlet and at a considerably lower price tag than the boat.
My plan would be to strategically place these cannons along Pierce County’s 235 miles of saltwater shoreline. A voluntary citizens militia will be trained to operate them in the event the county is ever invaded by terrorists.
