    I find it inexplicable that presumably armed police did not shoot back at these gunman.

    There's more to this story that has not been released yet.

    Shows how much damage can be done by just a few terrorists with AKs against unarmed sheep.

    He sure as heck does get it!!

    I know people who would gut the Second Amendment even though they claim to embrace the other nine amendments. What folly. It's rather like saying that except for a couple of murders, you live by the Ten Commandments.

    To my way of thinking, those who would shoot down the Second Amendment are taking aim at all of our liberties, whether it is the right to a public trial before an impartial jury or the freedom to worship, or not to worship, as we choose.
    I think the above quoted two paragraphs are the most salient part of the entire article. I would suggest copying the article and sending it to your representatives and senators. I did. And many of them could use a little refresher.

    Good article, too bad the anti's wouldn't understand it, even if they bothered to read it.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    No doubt, Ret... if I'm armed in a train station and some guy with an AK is shooting commuters, he's gotta go...

    I'm stunned that the police weren't firing back...
