We don't KNOW who did this, but I think most of us have a pretty good idea. Boston is the home of political correctness so we can expect a torrent of it, but others should be a little more circumspect not only in assigning blame but in ruling out where blame should go.
I hope the injured make a full recovery and, as I said, the perpetrators, regardless of who they are, get the justice they so richly deserve.
Those favoring "strict gun control" should note that the murderers here used no "assault weapon" in the attack, and that a host of local, state, and federal laws strictly prohibit building and using bombs. How'd those work out?
BTW, the attack seems eerily reminiscent of the bomb plot in the dark British "comedy" The Four Lions.
