It counts as a terrorist act because that term is a broad word.

In before the fat lady sings... "If only they had all had guns." Let's do away with gun control and arm everyone. That will really help the violence go down and make us a safe, civil society.

At Least 20 Victims Reported Down Amid Active Shooting Incident in San Bernardino: Police | KTLA
Doesn't CA. have some of the STRICTEST gun "control" laws on the books?

I guess ALL those laws DON'T work. (and NEVER have!)

That being said, has Trump, Carson, or any of the other GOPers tweeted out yet that the victims were at fault because they didn't have a gun to protect themselves yet?

You assume they were "targeted". This group of county employees may have been citizens convenient for the killers to murder quickly and get out of the building quickly. You can't assume they were targeted specifically.
