While our "Leaders" sit in Washington deciding if we should be able to own a gun or not !!!! Be sure & read them their "Rights" when they are caught..

We need more control over running! We should have stricter laws regarding running and running events to prevent more of this in the future.

LocalGirl...exactly. At this time sending out many prayers to all.

Now is NOT the time to be political. It is the time for us to unite as Americans..and help our fellow citizens. That is what we Americans do in times of trouble...unite as ONE Country.

Why is it that every time something happens it always goes back to the President?? I've said it time & again if some crazed lunatic wants to kill someone he will find a way to do it whether if it has a law against the weapon of choice or not..It is set in his mind to do it- he is gonna do it one way or another.NO LAWS ARE GONNA STOP HIM.AND IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT PRESIDENT IS IN OFFICE.I'm quite sure many Presidents in the past had made choices to ban weapons or make certain laws against them & did any killings or crazed actions stop?? HEL_ NO!! So stop it with the White House bs already. Stop using that as a crutch to base your comments on.Look at the situation & the outcome & the ppl hurt-their families-the ppl at the scene-neighbors no matter where the crime took place & what they are going through.My prayers go out to all at the Boston Marathon.I'm so sorry this happened to you & your family.You's did not deserve this no matter how it happened.

The classic lib answer, prayers to all. No worry about church and state. At least one major network and some commentators are blaming the right wing. I love uhgtbk's comment. Amazing how some one was able to plant a device so close to the end undetected. hey libs, was it due to global warming ? what a message it sends to the world.

@ judeye & localgirl I agree with you both 100000%..I know one comment irked me & thats why I commented as I did in the beginning of my comment but as I then mentioned it should be all about the ppl at the scene & so forth..I really feel hurt deep in my heart for them.PPl wait for this event & come from all over the world to participate & for it to end like it did is just horrible.

Boston must be viewed as easy. Did not two planes take off from there on 911 ? Now this. Stop and frisk should be tried , like in NYC.

While my prayers go out to all of them you can bet your bottom dollar that the bombing had political motivation behind it. So yes it should be seen as political.

Marcia- I think Steiner MUST make everything in the world political. I think it's a side effect from too many fumes from his Steinertron. :-)

KeepinItReal4U..and that person is NOT a suspect at all. The Boston Police made that VERY clear in their press conference.
