Bomb Scares Renew Domestic Terrorism Law Debate

WASHINGTON (AP) — The package bombs sent to Democrats across the country and the killings of Jews at a Pittsburgh synagogue may seem like clear-cut cases of terrorism. But the suspects will almost certainly never face terrorism charges. The reason: There’s no domestic terrorism law. Whether there should be one is a matter of debate.
