Within days of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December, President Barack Obama and liberals across the country began pushing for stricter gun control laws to supposedly reduce violence. They all claim that it was guns and high capacity ammunition clips that caused the violence that left 20 kids and 6 adults.
Massachusetts has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation. Everyone in the state should feel safe. So safe in fact that the atmosphere for the Boston Marathon yesterday was very celebratory and everyone was having a great time.
The first runners in the marathon crossed the finished line at the 2 hour 10 minute and 22 second mark. Over an hour and half later, many others were still crossing the finish line. At the 3 hour 49 minute mark, a bomb that had been placed in a trash can near the finish line exploded. Fifteen seconds later another trash can bomb blew up a couple blocks down from the finish line.
