Heavily armed with rifles and explosives, husband-and-wife suspects Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, went on a rampage, shooting up a holiday luncheon for Farook's Department of Public Health colleagues at the Inland Regional Center and then fleeing in a black SUV.

2. Was it terrorism? — Immediately following the tragedy in San Bernardino, questions began swirling as to the attackers' motive. Though some insisted the shooting could have been an extreme case of workplace violence, the FBI confirmed on Friday it was, indeed, terrorism. Law enforcement sources say Farook appeared to have been radicalized and was in contact with more than one international terror suspect via telephone and social media. Meanwhile, his wife had pledged her allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. (California Department of Motor Vehicles via AP)

3. Gun control takes center stage
— The 2016 presidential candidates on both sides of the aisle took to social media in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting Wednesday with many Democrats taking the opportunity to push for gun control, while the Republicans offered their "thoughts and prayers." "I refuse to accept this as normal. We must take action to stop gun violence now," Hillary Clinton tweeted. "We need sensible legislation that prevents guns from being used by people who should not have them," Bernie Sanders wrote. "California shooting looks very bad. Good luck to law enforcement and God bless. This is when our police are so appreciated!" Donald Trump posted. "Our prayers are with the victims, their families, and the first responders in San Bernardino who willingly go into harm’s way to save others," tweeted Ted Cruz.

4. Cruz, Rubio making strides — Marco Rubio jumped to second place this week among the field of Republican presidential candidates, overtaking a slumping Ben Carson and coming within striking distance of Donald Trump's top spot.
