Do realize that many police officers, emt/paramedics, fire and ambulances are part of the finish line area of the Boston Marathon. Even the Department of Homeland Security was one block away with a RV that is full of equipment!

So what exactly are these cities doing to "beef up" security?

3 dead, 140 wounded. Rumor is "30 people" have an arm or leg missing from this blast. . .

And 300,000,000 guns killed NOBODY yesterday.

And statistically about 4900 violent crimes were PREVENTED by guns yesterday.

It was appalling when Obama used the school shooting for his left wing politics and attempt to advance his anti firearm ownership agenda, its no less appalling to use this tragedy to make some right wing point. This country suffers from too much extreme politics and too much noise from the extremes. Using incidents to advance political agendas only encourages more incidents. Politics drives people crazy, as does religion and today we mix the two. The country suffered a tragedy and no one asked the victims which party they belonged too or if they favored this or that.
