BREAKING: Bomb Attack Kills at Least 20 at UK Concert

The bomb attack at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England reportedly also may have wounded hundreds.

The bomb attack should remind us England has become the home of mass immigration and gun control. Perhaps it will be discovered that the bombing was no an act of terrorism linked to immigration. We will see. Gun control is relevant since, once again, we see that such bans don’t stop people intent on violence.

NBC News has reported, “At Least 20 Killed After Possible Explosions at Manchester Arena Concert Featuring Ariana Grande.”

At least 20 people were killed and possibly “hundreds” of others were injures after one or more loud bangs were heard Monday night at an Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena in England, multiple law enforcement told NBC News.

Law enforcement sources in both Britain and the United States told NBC News there were possibly two explosions. There was no immediate information on what kind of explosions occurred, and the sources stressed that the information was preliminary and subject to change.

The story is developing. Here is an earlier BBC report:

We will have to see how much police and emergency services reveal, and how soon, about what happened. If this was indeed a terrorist attack it could (and should) have international political consequences.

Also, CNBC is claiming that police suspect the attack was carried out by a “suicide” bomber. They are also reporting that there was more than one explosion.

If this is determined to be an act of terrorism, it may be relevant that Ariana Grande made a point of championing immorality. As Time magazine put it:

Powerhouse singer Ariana Grande kicks off a cheeky and frank conversation about sexuality with her new music video for “Everyday” featuring Future. The video, an unabashed celebration of public displays of affection, stars a diverse set of couples—across different ages, sexual orientations, body types and races—getting after it while Grande, in an oversized puffy jacket, watches with approval.

While conservatives may have not approved of this, another population may have believed they were justified in doing something about it.
