The clear Illustration here is that Govt cannot prevent bad things from happening with Regulations.

Govt regualtions on guns, fertilizer, etc will only push people to be more creative. Evil has no limits.

Above well said--

Chuck Colson said it years ago, we are slowly giving away our freedoms for the hope of security. Sadly they are freedoms many gave it all for and we have taken them for granted. We blame it all on devices and tools used but we reframe from confronting the real cause, the condition of the human heart. We continue to take aspirin for the cancer that is destroying us. We refuse to learn from our history and we repeat the same mistakes over and over--it begs the question, how stupid must we continue to be? Definition of insanity seems to be well applied here!

We want someone else to solve the problem so we can continue on down the road to self-fulfillment and not be bothered. Freedom is not free and it requires much in the way of responsibility. Until we become responsible again, standing for what is true and right, and teach our young people to be the same, this is not going to be very pretty. I thank God for the men and women who continue to lay it all on the line daily for our country's continued security and those that respond in time of disaster but I fear that given the current political climate that exists all may not be bright for us.

I will continue to pray for all those who suffered in this tragedy for I know that prayer does change things and it also changes the one doing the praying. That can be a great miracle in itself.

Rant over--

What a sad thing to have to deal with. If it's not one thing, it's another.

It's not hard to make black powder, either. They'd have to ban a lot of things if they want everyone to be completely docile.

News outlets (FOX/CNN) jumped the gun. No arrests yet.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I think it was Associated Press that took the biggest leap. Fox kept saying they couldn't verify anything.

Fox may now be saying that. But, earlier, Fox and CNN were all in based on whatever their respective sources were. Both have backpeddled tremendously from 29 minutes ago and have completely edited the stories to save face. Both are pitiful excuses for news outlets.

Suspect nabbed in Boston Marathon bombing
Fox News - ‎29 minutes ago‎
DEVELOPING: Investigators have arrested a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing after reviewing photos and video from Monday's event, a federal source confirmed to FoxNews.com. The suspect, who is expected to appear in federal court in Boston later ...


Now, it may be that there is someone in custody and the Feds don't want the media outlets blabbing about it so that they can grab the other suspect. Either way, the media outlets jumping the gun is a pet peeve of mine.

Too many news services more worried about being first than being right.
