I sincerely hope that these stories are wrong, gross exaggerations, or simply lies. I really pray that they're not true. Regardless of whether or not the article is factual (and honestly, we know that it will turn out to be true), I have three things to say.
1) Beautiful, gentle, peaceful religion? What in the hell was George Bush smoking when he made that statement? Don't even get me started on idiocies uttered by, "The One."
2) There's no reason why an attack like the one in Kenya couldn't happen in the USA. It might not go on as long, but we could easily see something with a similar death toll.
3) Have gun free zones ever made anyone safer?
