Knew it was a matter of time before one the shitbags would use this for politicizing the sad event. Typical of a Republican, hate is their mainstream agenda. And they wonder why they cant win the White House?

As the massive manhunt for the second suspect in the Boston bombings was underway, Republican Arkansas state Rep. Nate Bell linked the ongoing situation to the gun control debate.

"I wonder how many Boston liberals spent the night cowering in their homes wishing they had an AR-15 with a high-capacity magazine?" he tweeted. He included the hashtag #2A, for Second Amendment.

However, later on Friday he apologized for his tweet on Facebook:

I would like to apologize to the people of Boston & Massachusetts for the poor timing of my tweet earlier this morning. As a staunch and unwavering supporter of the individual right to self defense, I expressed my point of view without thinking of its effect on those still in time of crisis. In hindsight, given the ongoing tragedy that is still unfolding, I regret the poor choice of timing. Please know that my thoughts and prayers were with the people of Boston overnight and will continue as they recover from this tragedy.

As of Friday afternoon, authorities were still scouring the Boston area for Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19. His brother, identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev and the other bombing suspect, was killed in a confrontation with police in Watertown, Mass. on Friday.

It's sad enough innocent people lost their lives over this horrific tragedy but it wasn't 24 hours in this forum that, the racist bastard Comrade Doug Edwards posted his racist hatred and started blaming ethnic groups and political parties and even Obama for the bombing. Unbelievable Doug. You become a bigger idiot each and every post you make.

Nate Bell proves one thing.
Fat is the only flavor the GOP comes in.
