Some states intend to “explore” ways to block those on terror watch lists from buying guns. Already, according to this story, the state of New Jersey blocks people on the list from purchasing guns, something which would seem to be unconstitutional. Consider the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Owning a gun is a Constitutional right, not just a privilege, like driving a car. In addition, the Constitution requires “due process”, which is not something that occurs when someone is added to terror watch lists by anonymous bureaucrats.

Global warming did NOT cause the Islamic terror attack in California, nor did “strain,” desperation, or a lack of food.
The lack of a job did NOT cause the Islamic terror attack in CA.
Poverty did NOT cause the Islamic terror attack in CA.
Drought did NOT cause the Islamic terror attack in CA.

On the subject of Syria, ISIS, and “refugees”, Bill O’Reilly opined that Barack Obama is “delusional.” Donald Trump said, with particular insight, that Obama “doesn’t have a clue or he does have a clue and he has evil intentions–I don’t know.” A writer at WND has similar questions:
In every area, Obama demonstrates an unfortunate affinity for that which normal people would describe as destructive, corrupt, evil.
Whether this is because Obama is evil at his core, or whether there’s a decent person locked up inside but who has been traumatized and brainwashed – a Manchurian president, programmed not by exotic far-off communist brainwashers, but by a nonstop sequence of corrupting influences throughout his life – is not ours to know.

Our deepest sympathy to the families of the victims of the Islamic terror attack in Paris. May God bless them and keep them. May the souls of the dead rest in peace. We pray for the recovery of all who were injured, in body and in mind. We the People of the United States stand united with the people of France against our common enemy: Islamic terrorism. Its shadow threatens us all.

It seems apparent that we may never learn the whole truth about the recent murders in Oregon. The official narrative seems to be that the shooter, Christopher Mercer (aka Chris Harper-Mercer), was a mentally ill loser who somehow gathered a “legal” arsenal, carried a rifle and 5 handguns into Umpqua Community College without being seen or stopped, and systematically, within 10 minutes, murdered 9 fellow students–shooting one man 5 times (or 7 times) and one woman 10 times–and wounding 9. As usual, various scenarios are offered.
