“When the FBI went to speak with a man accused of buying the assault rifles used by his friend in the San Bernardino terror attack, they learned about a sinister plot the two men had crafted years earlier,” usnews.com reports. “In interviews over 11 days, Enrique Marquez Jr. willingly told agents how he and Farook had planned to slaughter students at a community college they attended and massacre motorists on a gridlocked freeway, according to court documents.” Specifically . . .
Why the San Bernardino terrorist chose instead to slaughter one of the shooter’s work colleagues is unknown. It may never be known. But what we do know is that the revelation indicates that terrorists are targeting any large group of people in a confined space. And that many confined spaces – classrooms, football stadia, concerts, movie theaters – are so-called “gun free” zones. Anyone else see the problem with that?
