Because we're so afraid to offend, although it sure looked liked terror, yesterday's news about the mass shooting in San Bernardino started with speculation about work place violence. Only after it was discovered that the shooters had over 5,000 rounds of ammunition, could our liberal press mutter the word terrorism. Instead of terror, the focus now will be on gun control, already the press is blaming the NRA. We are so afraid of profiling, we instead pat down little 92 year old grandmothers at the airport. We are so afraid of being called xenophobic, we have become fish in a barrel.
ADDENDUM: This afternoon, ten hours after I wrote this post, the authorities and press concede that indeed the attack was terror. The Obama administration still wants to link it to gun control, but I have no doubt that this couple would have acquired firearms and ammunition, regardless of regulations.
