    Muslim extremists versus frothing Murican conservatives, who is dumber? I can't tell. Luckily only the attackers were killed and somebody didn't get their kids mowed down at this "freedom" event. I don't know about you guys but I feel safer and freer already.

    Honestly (and I'm only half joking here), I actually kind of like the idea of using events like these as bait to draw the violent whackjobs out, so they can be dealt with more efficiently.

    Can you say "natural selection?"

    Yes, we are fortunate enough to live in a country where freedom of speech is allowed; however, freedom from consequence is not allowed. WTF were these idiots thinking? "Gee, it would be fun to entice angry Muslims to come and try to kill us while we mock them?" Thankfully, it wasn't worse... but I can't imagine why anyone would think such an in-your-face outrage would be a swell idea.
    Its supposed to be America.

    Those people shouldn't have to worry about the consequences of " pissing off a bunch of Muslims ".

    They SHOULD be able to express their 1st amendment rights without the fear that they'll be persecuted by those who disagree with them.

    The problem isn't the people who held the event, its the people who are Religiously and ideologically committed to killing all those who disagree with them.

    Its 2015 for Gods sake. Hard to believe we're even having this conversation.

Doing dangerous things increases one's odds of experiencing dangerous situations. It was up to those in charge to understand and mitigate that danger adequately. They didn't.
    well that makes sense but gosh darn it if we cant draw Mohamed the terrorist win

    You seem to have everything exactly backwards. They had far more than one pitiful security guard (thanks for making fun of the wounded man by the way) and they mitigated the danger quite well. In fact, the two perps are dead

    the down side is natural selection would work and the smarter surviving zealots would just look for softer targets in retaliation

    What was said was that they shouldn't be free from the consequences, which in this case was a violent armed attack. As far as I know, in America, you should indeed be free from those kinds of consequences

    Re: Shooting at Muhammad Art Exhibit in Texas

    If those ****ing nutbags exist on this soil and lose their minds over a drawing of Muhammed, does anyone REALLY believe some other 'justified' act of terrorism....err...consequence to free speech...is far behind it?
