Two explosions went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday as runners completed the race and thousands of people cheered them on. The blasts were described by race organizers as two bombs, and witnesses told NBC News that there were widespread injuries, some severe.
The explosions were caught on video:



Our thoughts are with the people of Boston as they recover from this tragedy.

By the way, how long do you think before Wayne LaPierre holds a press conference telling us why we shouldn't ban people from owning bombs because criminals, like the ones that set the bombs off in Boston, would get it anyway?
