California Mass Shooting: America Is At Risk from Radical Islam, Republicans Say

The attack in California last Wednesday, have been considered as a threat created by Islamic radicals, which killed 14 people and left 21 wounded.
Republicans are now saying that the Americans are currently exposing their lives to danger and harm, and are not safe from the terrorist motives and behaviors being carried by these Islamic groups.
Republican John Kasich, governor of Ohio said, “There can be no doubt that this is an effort to destroy our very way of life”.

Issues in security and safety from the Islamic militants have been raised to the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual conference, and Republican candidates have vowed to take actions in eliminating these radical groups.

The mass shooting have been instantly linked to the possible terrorist movement of homegrown radicals. A one aspect that has been ignored for years in the American lands. Freedom, democracy and leniency have become weapons used against the American people.

The motive behind the killings were not yet clear, however, officials are now trying to look at the background of the killers, Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, and whether they are connected with Islamic militants abroad.

Officials have determined that the attack was pre-planned since bomb equipment, weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition were found in the attackers’ residence.

David Bowdich, assistant director of the FBI’s Los Angeles office said, “There was obviously a mission here. We know that. We do not know why. We don’t know if this was the intended target or if there was something that triggered him to do this immediately”.

Trump, who leads the Republican polls, has the described the attack as “radical Islamic terrorism”, and criticised Obama for rejecting the idea.

While the police officials are not yet sure of the motive of the attackers, a lot of Republicans are convinced the shooting was an act of terrorism. Obama argued the possibility of the terrorism, however, he said, “It’s also possible that this was workplace-related.”

Senator Ted Cruz had criticised Obama for failing to protect the United States, and had also called Obama to prepare for war.
