    Exactly. They'd eventually retaliate by bombing things and beheading people in other locales while avoiding the events entirely.

    I just happened to think that it was an amusing thought for the moment.

    Well...lets see. People are saying that it is an expected 'consequence'....that one can expect such a response to an act of free speech from extremists-that sort of sounds like blaming the people that hosted and attened the free speech event, doesnt it? Does that mean we can soon expect other responses as a natural 'consequence' from extremists in the US?

    Re: Shooting at Muhammad Art Exhibit in Texas

    I have no idea how this ceremony is being conflated with the '1st Amendment' or the 'constitutional right to free speech' - can someone please show me the nexus?

    The government isn't even involved here.

    This appears to be one hate group antagonizing another; a race to the bottom, as I see it.

    I don't see any constitutional issues at all.

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, apparently there is no need for private security when you are in Texas.

    it might be blaming the people exercising free speech but that's not the same as excusing the criminals who are part of the consequence

    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
