It’s all LEO/media rumor and speculation right now. We’ll have to wait and see what the truth is in this.

You can't do that! You gotta first have terrorists that want to make a bomb first go thru a background check. Only then, have them register their bombs. And THEN, you can ban them!

WGRZ says the cars had Massachusetts plates. My guess is that they were hoping to flee to Canada.

These reactionary alarmists will really be up against a rock and hard place when the next terrorist carries only a surgically inserted non metallic, powerful two part chemical bomb to the next disaster.

Box cutters, shoes, underwear, backpacks, minivans, white vans, etc...... what’s next before surgical bombs? Fannypacks?

Well, at least the MSM now has an angle to report the story. The terrorists were “Russians,” just like Yul Brynner and Milla Jovovich.

For most folks, saying "be on the lookout for Chechens" will result in a collective "huh?" Call them "Russians" and people see the Russian-looking names and actually do something.

Not that I disagree that the media is trying to downplay the Muslim angle as fast as possible.

That was my thought. If the car had Mass plates, they probably drove right by me (Syracuse), you (Buffalo) and headed for the border crossing at Niagara Falls. It used to be easy getting into Canada at the falls, I’m guessing not so much now.

Ban, register and confiscate all backpacks.

Only assault backpacks, but from now on all backpacks will be limited to one zipper. I mean, who needs more than one zipper?

Just heard in the news that there are SWAT teams in monkey county Maryland.

Terrorists family connections to someone in monkey county Maryland.

Monkey county Maryland is a sanctuary county for illegals.

NIAGARA FALLS, NY - A high ranking source tells 2 On Your Side that the traffic stop in Niagara Falls this morning was routine, but police are searching items in the vehicle and residents are being asked to stay away from the area.

Police stopped the car at 19th and Elmwood in the Falls.

The vehicle has Massachusetts license plates.

A source earlier this morning said the two occupents were Russian nationals, but police now say that is not true.

The FBI tells 2 On Your Side they are aware of the situation and that their joint-terrorism task force is assisting the NYSP.
