    I gather this was an exhibit of artwork that depicts Muhammad, a la Charlie Hebdo, in defiance of radical Muslims and in affirmation of freedom of speech.

    Two guys drove up armed with guns and explosives, opened fire, and were killed straight away by return fire.

    It's a bad idea to go gunning for any group of Texans without a lot of firepower.

    As a Brit I'm normally anti guns in society.

    This is one of the rare occaisions that it works just fine.

    Look how insane leftism is.
    I can't understand your comment because it doesn't make grammatical sense.

    All I'm saying is that “Muslims are the vilest of animals…”

    “Show mercy to one another, but be ruthless to Muslims”

    “How perverse are Muslims!”

    “Strike off the heads of Muslims, as well as their fingertips”

    “Fight those Muslims who are near to you”

    And

    “Muslim mischief makers should be murdered or crucified”

    Preaching mass murder, it's a good thing.

    Don't flatter yourself. You are simply blaming the ones being attacked for the attack.

    No, it's probably because you are too uninformed to know what this is about.

    Actually the attackers were shot by police who was present. I don't see how this incident can be used either way in the discussion on the right to bear arms.

    The problem in this case is both. Vigilante violence by Islamic extremists is a problem no-one is disputing.

    On freedom of speech, it's a right but not an absolute one. No right is absolute. So when the exercise of your freedom of speech foreseeably provokes violence from people who then put my life at risk, then my life comes first and your freedom of speech comes second. If only we lived in a better world without violent people who don't react to provocation. But we don't. So till we do, I'd like you to take it upon yourself to consider the impact that your freedom of speech could have, in advance of exercising it.

    Think of freedom of speech like a fast car. If you look after it responsibly and drive safely, then it will go on for years and give you and others a lot of enjoyment. But if you drive it like a madman and run it into the ground, then you can expect your freedom to drive fast cars to be curtailed by your irresponsibility. Freedom of speech is to be cherished - groups like these people in Garland in fact treat it with contempt and risk its future for all of us.

    You're more than welcomed to conduct your own experiment on such social behaviors and tell a woman who just got raped that the skirt she was wearing was too short and that's what motivated the rapist to rape her. See what reaction you get for that.

    Actually no. I recommend you take some classes on verbal reasoning.
