Feel obligated to post something about this terrorist attack....
And no, I am not going to call it a "tragedy", "incident", "crime scene" or anything else.... It is what it is. The people/person involved knew exactly what the impact of this would be and where it would be detonated and for what purpose, its terrorism.
Now I am not going to start hypothesising on who or whom it may have been or their motivation for do this dastardly and cowardly attack. I will let the guys with the badges and training do their job and chime in when the time is right.
I will also not try and tie this in with the government going after our 2A rights as if having somebody armed there would of prevented this. 99.99% chance that they wouldn't and using this tragic loss of life to promote that agenda is just not right, not that this has stopped many a pundant in our corner from doing so, but again I say take the high ground until the other side tries to use it against us.
I will say this, last night our POTUS swore that the culprits would face the full weight of justice..... let me just say I have some reservations about that statement. First off, we have a Army Major in Fort Hood that was caught red handed murdering his fellow soldiers that has not faced it yet and a similar message was said last fall after Americans were killed in Libya. Where is that "weight" in those instances?
God Bless the victims, their families and everyone affected by this attack...including many vets in other places that that all the major news outlets interject memories back into their heads that many fought to get rid of....
