Just heard at least 3 dead, 38 injured, some severely with limbs blown off. Eyewitness reports that the explosions came from trashcans. Boston Police are asking that no one use cell phones. It is also being reported they detonated a suspicious device and that another device may have been found in a nearby hotel.
New York City is instituting highest level security as are other cities (haven't heard anything about Chicago yet)...Boston is even curtailing and shutting down portions of public transportation
Are we under attack?

I have my moments. Gets to me that the biggest "problem" with America is law abiding citizens with rifles, and people that are trying to kill have no resistance doing it.

I believe our efforts to keep our country safe are going in the wrong direction. If I offended any one, I am sorry. I'll leave it at that.

Damn. Ugly pictures coming out of this deal. Worst part, is that the people that died weren't even there for themselves, they were there supporting others. Yet another monumental milestone in catastrophic destruction.

Investigators have a suspect — a Saudi Arabian national — in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.

Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.

Fox News reported that the suspect suffered severe burns.

Just wow to this comment and your first one

Seriously dave No one gives a fuck about hearing what gun you can carry, what you own and that Florida is the greatest state cause that's all you have going on for you is that you carry a gun in every dam thread. Seriously bro your getting as bad as a bible thumper constantly pushing their beliefs on people who care not to hear it.

It doesnt make you a bigger man or more of a man for that matter. seriously give it a rest for once cause everyone on the internet is aware you CARRY a gun

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Been reading, hearing sketchy stuff that the suspect is in the hospital too.

So if he is an illegal, do we ship him to gitmo? then they can torture the shit out of him.

word is several people are being interviewed as people of interest due to burn locations etc etc there is no suspect. Something says this is just a start

confirmed 8 YOA boy as one of two dead with 17 or so in critical condition

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Unless I can't read, you're the first one to bring up "Florida" and "carry" in this thread.

While in bad taste, the connection between the tools used and absurdity of the laws to prevent the tragedies is one and the same.
