@Ellie_Knightfall thanks. Yeah we've been keeping up with the story at the station. I went to school with a girl who was injured in the bombing. 2 of my friends on the job ran the marathon, they weren't hurt but they said it was unbelievable chaos. Hopefully the other suspect gets what his brother received.

So...now...the U.S. government, like a vendetta, want to bombing the Chechnya with drones?

@Alexander I don't think that's the case. These 2 suspects seemed to be working independently of their own accord. No ones saying Chechyna is at fault.

Isn't it crazy that two dudes pretty much shutdown the whole city area? It's messed up to think what an organized attack could do. Guess we just have to hope the people behind the scenes are doing everything they can.

This is the problem with terrorism, you really cant stop it. They have already accomplished what they set out to do. Making people afraid to go out and do things and shutting down the city basically. If we Americans are anything its resilient as we can attest to after 9/11. Unfortunately there a many of cowards in the world with fanatic views enforced by religion or other beliefs. This is why I'm all for people having the right to bare arms.

It's my understanding officials have told people to stay inside because it'll help their manhunt.

Yep, that and makes sure no one becomes a potential hostage when they don't have to be.

What I find most frustrating is the duality of the response Government has to terrorism compared to gun violence. We can't even get a back-ground check bill through with constant gun related death day by day and yet the bombings in Boston (and subsequent shoot out with police) is going to get tremendous more motivation to actually act. It's ridiculous, especially when the bill is defeated a day before said individuals have a shoot out with Police.

Although the real trick to avoiding letting "terrorism" win not to go down the Islamaphobia route or allow it to disrupt our norm. In this case, keeping people in their homes is a means to an end to help control the situation since the man was at large.

@isaac_clarke don't even get me started on gun laws and background checks! It's really sad that our government can't get a simple background check bill passed.

I'm so sick of people being "used" to acts of violence, that's why nothing ever gets done.

People need to stand up, not sit down and wait for the next Newtown to happen.

Remember Newtown, 20 kids and 6 adults killed. We ranted about it for a month, then it just died, no one cared anymore.

Remember The Dark Knight Rises shooting, we only were mad about that for a week, tops.

Stand up, promote better weapon laws, I'm honestly thinking that if we got the president to shut down weapon stores, a lot of violence would stop.
