    Two people have been shot outside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland Sunday afternoon, Garland police have confirmed.

    The Curtis Culwell Center in Garland is hosting a controversial art event featuring cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.

    The Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest was organized by the American Freedom Defense Initiative. The group claims the event is an effort to stand up against violent intimidation.

    The event was organized after a pro-Islamic event was held in January.

    There was a heavy police presence all afternoon outside of the center.

    Why do they come to this country if they hate freedom of speech?

    The mayor of Irving, tx, only about 20 miles away from garland (all suburbs of Dallas proper) is under fire for that same stance on the issue.

    Sharia law, etc.

    It's interesting here because Texas is such a perennial "red state" but the demographic is definitely in flux with the newly welcomed illegals from South America and knuckling under to the social justice warriors and Muslims

    I fear it will end with a test of who has more guns, and who knows how to aim and clean them

    Any way the population of Garland can be culled is pretty much OK by me.

    I think we should build a giant fence around Texas, give it back to Mexico, and name Puerto Rico the newest state, so we don't have to fuck with the flag.

    I think California should drop into the sea. We'd get rid of a major part of the illegal immigration problem plus a bunch of people with a tenuous grasp of reality.

    Nothing was passed against it... that is why so many people are up in arms about it.

    The culture of including everyone has begun to trample the constitution the country was founded on, and when the law of the land is thrown out the window for the latest fad, we have a true problem on our hands

    Even though Texas is Red, 41% still voted blue in the last presidential election. It wouldn't take that much to tip the scale in the other direction.
