    What can (or should) the government do about this?

    Cage in the entire city, do full scans on everyone and check all vehicles with bomb sniffing dogs. Eliminate firearms from within the cage and have a team to check the incoming water sources for toxins.............other than the one you pay them to put in it.
    Hey. You wanna be safe, right ? You have to make sacrifices to let them defend your FreeDumbs.

    Sad to say, but psychos shooting up McD's or Applebee's happen on a regular basis anymore it seems, and all over the country. What should government do to protect all people eating in any restaurant anywhere from nutjobs? Would you like to dine under surveillance, after passing through a security checkpoint with metal detectors?

    Goldcatt - I should have been more specific in my question. I'm sure the DC police and FBI have some kind of crisis plan if the threat is specific.

    I'm more interested in how they can prevent circulation of this magazine.

    They probably can't, any more than they can prevent circulation of information telling neo nazi scum how to make explosives and conduct lynchings. Or certain milita types how to stockpile weapons, evade taxes and plot uprisings against the government. That pesky First Amendment in action, if it doesn't meet Brandenburg it's protected.

    Officials are obviously aware of the publication and its source, we do not hear of all of their national security efforts in monitoring individuals for a very good reason. You can trust them in what they do or not, but if you don't then asking what they can do is kinda silly since you already don't trust them to take care of business in the first place.

    Awareness. That's what we do in one of the last societies where freedom of speech is golden.

    I picked a great time to move downtown, huh? Wellllll.....I guess I'll be eating at small cafes instead of major eateries for the foreseeable future. Not too much of a sacrifice, I prefer that anyway.

    Please, don't try to "protect us" just try to stop the bad guys if they come. I don't need any more metal scanners in my life. I don't need any more censorship of the Internet. Work on finding the guys that want to do this instead of "protecting me."
