Darryl Glenn on Homeland Security



CBRNE represents greatest threat for a mass casualty event

Q: What legislation would you be willing to support in order to curb the infliction of mass casualties on citizens?

Darryl Glenn: Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosives (CBRNE) represent the greatest threat for a mass casualty event in the US--especially in the hands of a terrorist group or a lone wolf. The best safeguards against such an attack are robust, well trained, and properly equipped military, police, and intelligence groups. We must also work diligently to keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of hostile nations, rogue actors, and terrorist groups. This means that nations like Iran and North Korea cannot be permitted to attain nuclear capabilities and I would support legislation that tightens restrictions on those nations, including the reimposition of sanctions on Iran and the freezing of their assets. We must also ensure that CBRNE weapons do not make their way into the hands of nonstate actors including terrorist groups like ISIS.

Supports maintaining our nuclear arsenal.

Glenn supports the AFA survey question on defense superiority

The American Family Association Action Voter Guide asked if candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'The United States must maintain a nuclear arsenal that is safe, reliable, modern and numerically superior to those of potential adversaries.' American Family Association Action (AFA Action) produces the online "iVoterGuide" for selected state and federal races. The mission of AFA Action is to inform and mobilize individuals to strengthen the biblical foundations of America.
