I guess we need stricter bomb-control legislation to prevent this sort of tragedy from happening again.

Oh, wait- bombs are already completely illegal, aren't they?

You're right. Must have been one of those damn assault rifles that blew up.

What are you talking about? If we pass strong enough restrictive legislation, surely we will be able to prevent people from acquiring and using bombs.

If we had a national bomb registry, at least we'd know whose bombs were used for the attack.

I'm just glad none of the citizens had bombs, or some of the victims might have been caught in a bomb shooting gallery.

Ban the assault runners. Without the runners the bombers wouldn't have any more runner targets and obviously would exchange their bombing for knitting or finger-painting.

Here's to several months worth of pictures of bald eagles superimposed over runners and buzzwords like "perseverance" "stand together" and "strengthen".

Someone said something interesting on TV yesterday during this coverage that was sort of interesting:

The failed 2010 NYC bomber only failed because of trying to fly under the radar. Apparently he used materials to build his bombs 1-step lower than the level of things getting reported to the feds. So basically, the fed will look into anyone buying X but not Y, and this guy knew it. Luckily when his bomb went off, because of it, it only caught on fire and didn't explode. But it just goes to show how useless these sorts of laws are.

Showing my ID to clear my nasal passages does not stop Breaking Bad.

Having about 50 cops within 10 feet of a blast zone, did not deter this guy...

Could you imagine living there and being that brain washed. They probably all believe it.
