Police and fire personnel secure the scene of a mass shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, Calif., on Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015. Gina Ferazzi TNS
When I wake up in the morning, I always say thank you God for waking me up. I thought it was going to be a nice kick back day. Then I turned on the news and was saddened at what I was hearing. On Wednesday December 2, 2015 at 11a.m. in San Bernardino, California Syed Rizwan Farook 28 and Tashfeen Malik 27 a married couple armed with .223-caliber assault rifles, semiautomatic handguns, and explosives opened fire at the Inland Regional Center. A Social Services center that helps the disabled. They killed 14 people and injured 21. Authorities are now coming out and calling it what it is Terrorist! I believe Syed Farook went to his jobs holiday festivity for the Public Health Department determined to get into an altercation, for a weak excuse to go back. For him to go home and get his wife put on body armor, bring assault weapons, explosives shoot 35 people in cold blood was planned. After the two terrorist were shot and killed hours later in a shootout with police. Authorities went to these two sick individuals home in Redlands California and found a dozen pipe bombs, 2,000 9-millimeter handgun rounds, 2,500 .223-caliber assault rifle rounds and hundreds of tools. I think this shooting was a preview of what they had planned. Thank God they were killed before they caused any more bloodshed. I know that in the days to come we will find out more and who else was involved with this horrific act. This was the nation’s deadliest mass shooting since the assault on an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., nearly three years ago. Now will congress and the NRA going to do something about gun control? Probably not, because it is always about money. It should not be easy to get your hands on assault weapons. San Bernardino California will be forever changed after the shooting of 35 innocent people. My prayers go out to all the families that lost loved ones the injured and the City of San Bernardino.
