Anyone trying to parrot the left-wing progressive "workplace violence" narrative about Wednesday's tragedy won't be able to get around one simple question:
If this is simply "workplace violence", how is it that the terrorists manufactured and accumulated, over a period of months, multiple explosive devices - including pipe bombs, IED's, etc. - plus legally-bought firearms and thousands of rounds of ammunition, and equipped themselves with military-style webbing to carry it all, up to and including cameras to photograph the carnage they planned to cause?
There's also the fact that the day before the shootings, the terrorists began to erase their online presence, trying to eliminate clues that might aid those investigating their crimes. They didn't just "snap" and react violently to an alleged incident at the party. They planned this operation in cold blood. No, this wasn't "workplace violence". It was terrorism. There's no other possible explanation, and anyone who says there is, is lying to you.
Larry Correia does his usual masterful job in laying out the reality of the situation, and fisking those idiots who are trying to make excuses, or divert attention to their pet talking-points, or make political capital out of the tragedy. Here's an excerpt.
San Bernardino? Straight up terrorism. Like dictionary definition terrorism. Like the kind that the prog vultures all railed against George Bush for being so naïve and awful with his “fighting them there rather than here” approach. We certainly ended that imperialistic strategy. So how’s that working out for you now, western world? If you think three coordinated, body armor wearing, bomb building, planned in advance, Go-Pro wearing, shooters just suddenly sprung into existence as “workplace violence” because of an argument at a Christmas party, you’re smoking crack.
No amount of gun control matters to a militant jihadist. In the other article I talked about how criminals, by definition, don’t care about the law. Terrorists are criminals on steroids, and militant Islamic death cultists think they’re bringing about the apocalypse and they’re cool with that. Militant Islamic radical terrorists aren’t going anywhere. They’re in it to win it.
But hey, let’s make even more places gun free zones! That’ll show them.
. . .
California has an assault weapons ban. The terrorists didn’t care. California has high capacity magazine bans. The terrorists didn’t care. They’ve got all sorts of ridiculous rules with registries, approval lists, mandatory locks, safety tests, bullet buttons, and other forms of voodoo completely unintelligible to red state America, but the terrorists still didn’t care.
Of course they don’t. Because when you are planning to go out and commit a couple hundred felonies, including murder, you don’t give a damn about gun control laws. And they love Gun Free Zone signs, because that means before the cops can get there, they’re going to get several uninterrupted minutes of carnage footage on their Go-Pro to upload to ISIS propaganda websites.
. . .
Crime is an extremely complex issue. Anybody who boils it all down to one root is trying to sell you something. In this case, they’re selling gun control. Judging by how Americans purchased enough guns last weekend to arm the Marine Corps, apparently we aren’t buying the narrative.
There's much more at the link. Highly recommended reading.
Finally, don't think the problem is over. Sure, the San Bernardino terrorists are dead. Good riddance to them . . . but they have comrades in their warped, twisted version of faith, and comrades in arms. Right now, elsewhere in the USA, I'll guaran-damn-tee you there are dozens, if not hundreds, of jihadist terrorist wannabe's planning attacks, accumulating weapons and explosives, and having wet dreams about killing infidels for the glory of their false god. The only thing that will stop them is armed citizens at the scene of their attacks, who can intervene before they've killed too many people. Nothing else will do so - certainly not the police and emergency services, who can only respond after the fact.
Expect more such attacks, and be prepared for them. You won't be disappointed.
