Tommy guns guarding the nation's food supply?

This news is a bit old but former governor of Wisconsin and current head of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson says that the nations food supply is in danger of attack. You can read the article here. I only noticed this when FrankJ of IMAO mentioned it in his Bite Sized Wisdom on his website. An excerpt follows:
So Tommy Thompson warns of attacks on the food supply. What are we going to do now? Have armed Marines in the produce section? Some old lady going to be squeezing a cantaloupe to check if it's fresh and find a Beretta 9mm pressed against her temple with the warning, "You've had enough time to tell whether that melon is ripe or not; now either buy it or back away!" That would be so funny... and, uh, wrong.
