    Most of what these soldiers cops did was prevent the attacked from leaving.
    Your point? Then again I doubt you could carry the equipment.

    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.


    provoke?

    Where is there a law, even a by law, that says there is a right not to be offended?

    FFS, I see provocation depictions of Jesus all the time, and none of them start shooting up the landscape.

    Who the **** gave Islam the right not to be provoked?

    The religion of "peace" those wonderful people who behead and burn to death, decapitate babies need some ****ing Xanax

    When Obama called Islam the religion of peace he didn't add a disclaimer saying "unless you draw a cartoon".

    Or have a tattoo. Or don't wear a hijab, or don't shout death to America, or honor kill your daughter or any number of things they kill for.

    Dunno at this point for sure.

    But the point is still valid even if it was a cop: as an armed society we have armed cops and armed security guards. In many countries where there is no right to arms to speak of, armed security guards are rare and even armed cops are uncommon.

    And even if there had been none such present, this being Texas there's a fairly good chance the shooters would have run afoul of armed citizens soon enough, unless this venue prohibited civilian carry (as some do, even in Texas).


    Final point being this sort of attempted mass shooting attack works far better in unarmed societies or "gun free zones" than elsewhere.


    Almost all US mass shootings with a large body count took place in "gun free zones" or places where CCW was prohibited.

    Take a look at any thread about atheism, and tell me there isn't provocation there?

    We can and we should poke holes in "sacred" bull****, if the "sacred" can't handle it then let them suffer.

    This is the best example of American-style justice I have seen in this "un-holy war on terror", the first real backbone that isn't politically cleansed for "domestic consumption", the kind of thing that should have happened in Benghazi.

    Two men show up, pull out guns and get taken out by a traffic cop.

    If the US needed a new way to say "Don't Tread On Me", they have it in spades. They might think about this kind of **** in Paris, but not in ****ing Texas, now likely the safest place in the union.

    The only good terrorists is a dead terrorist.

    Exactly.... all the tacticool gear in the world is nothing compared to being in the right place, right time, while exercising your 2nd amendment.

    Of course they would. Especially if the women wore the bikini in the presence of a Muslim or (GASP) WAS a Muslim. Then...for her honor, they would be obliged to kill her.
