There was an attack on April 16th, 2013 on an electric power station near San Jose, California. Snipers opened fire on a nearby electrical substation. Shooting for 19 minutes, they surgically knocked out 17 giant transformers that funnel power to Silicon Valley. No one has been arrested in connection with the attack. Someone that works with the FBI told the Journal that the agency does not believe a terrorist organization was responsible, but as Foreign Policy reported, a former PG&E vice president for transmission operations said at a conference last November that “these were not amateurs taking potshots. My personal view is that this was a dress rehearsal” for future attacks, added Mark Johnson, the former PG&E executive, according to Foreign Policy. Now its been ten months since the attack in California, and there was no attacks since then. Also, recently the U.S has warned airlines with direct flights to Russia to be aware of possible terrorism.

People shouldn’t panic about terrorism, when kids are responsible in some of the lately shootouts in the United States. This case is just another example of how vulnerable some places are in the United States. What can stop this kind of attacks? I don’t know, but by owners being aware that their firearms are in a safe box and people reporting someone suspicious would help to prevent firearm attacks.
