Boston Bombing

When I first flipped on the news and heard about this yesterday (about 2 hours after it happened) it had not been ruled an 'act of terror' however after the official response changed to the "T" word my reaction was they must think it is a right wing group, maybe something to do with it being April 15th being tax day. I thought this because if they suspected a Muslim group it would be ruled a accidental explosion or something equally stupid.
It does bring about the need for universal background checks for not only guns but any items at the hardware or grocery store which could be used to make a bomb. I am sure the Senate could make a laundry list of all items needing a background check to ensure this does not happen again. In fact I'm thinking we need to do a background on every time you have to fill up your car with gas, I mean a gas bomb is one of the worst. Just my thoughts, I trying hard here to think like a liberal.
My thoughts do go out to the victims and their families.

  1. Should I worry now about getting pulled over with my All American 921 pressure canner in the back? Or a sack of nails? Where does this craziness end?

  2. Duke,

    Sending thoughts and prayers from my heart for the victims and their families.

    Since they believe a pressure cooker was used to hold all of the material we will soon have to pass a background check to buy a pressure cooker.

    1. Sandy, I would hope so, for the children's sake. I am sure they would also make schools 'pressure cooker free zones'
      One day your kids will be saying, "I remember when I was in school we had pressure cookers in home economics class"

    1. Exactly, however I don't mean to insinuate it was, just that the liberal media will brand right wing groups as extreme terrorists and Middle Eastern groups as 'freedom fighters' or at least that is the trend of this current administration.
