The NRA did it.
1911s should be carried openly as God and John Moses Browning (PBUH) intended them to be.

I can hear the Liberal Chorus now: "We need common sense package delivery controls ..."

Normally the remains of bombs leave good evidence to help LE catch the bomber. I sure hope they do before anyone else gets hurt. If you’re not familiar with this read through it:

My understanding one of the frustrating things about the Unibomber for law inforcement was that he carved his bomb parts out of wood.

I hope this yahoo is not a smart or as careful.

RIP poor victims.

Just put up a bomb free sign instead. That way you can still get normal packages.

An unintended consequence might be less "porch pirate" activity in Austin. Anybody tracking that metric?
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
The last thing I want to do is hurt you....but it's still on my list.

The families of Stephen House, who was killed on March 2, and Draylen Mason, who was killed on Monday, have known each other for a long time “and go to the same church,” according to Nelson Linder.

As for the third bomb, police have a theory that it was meant for a woman who is not related to the Mason family, but shares their last name.
I believe the basic political division in this country is not between liberals and conservatives but between those who believe that they should have a say in the personal lives of strangers and those who do not.

Yep, handmade components and with others used things that were nearly impossible to track. He was not the norm and from the facts that have been released on this guy he appears to have some “experience”.
