First of all, a woman in Oklahoma WAS beheaded. (Check the link.)
Second, it appears that a muslim did it.
So.... what does this mean to us?
What are we supposed to do?
These things are not pleasant to ponder.
First and foremost, this is the LAST thing Obama needed to have happen on his watch.
He fumbled the ball on Isis, and thousands have died as a result.
Now, an own-goal where a defenseless woman was slaughtered... a second attacked... and (Gasp!) saved by a GUN!
The politics of this could get real ugly, real fast.
Secondly, how does this kind of thing impact our lives individually?
Does anyone believe, realistically, that this will be the last time something like this happens?
What if it begins to happen in other places?
Was this the wake-up call?
How does our government protect us?
How do we protect ourselves?
This isn't going to help those rabidly attempting to punish us with I-594, the gun-grabber initiative.
Are we going to have to begin to round-up muslims like we rounded up the Japanese?
Would it be unconstitutional?
Likely. But is the Constitution a death warrant?
What happens if the president uses this to declare martial law? What happens if this becomes more wide-spread? What do we do?
I have some ideas on this sort of thing... but my ideas and $5 will get you a latte at Starbucks.
The horror of this act is likely to result in an emotional response. Those in government who blow this off as an isolated instance do so at their own peril, politically.
This is why they make the big bucks.
I'm just dying to know what our erstwhile congresscritter will want to do. My guess is that, like in most things of any importance, the answer is "nothing..." if there's any response at all.
