No, your posts are the dumbest things I've ever seen.
At least back up your opinion so you don't look dumb, but I know you can't.

And no, that doesn't count people we kill in foreign lands. Just over 30K people die per year due to firearms in the US. Since Trump took office, wanting to institute a travel ban in order to "keep us safe", there have been zero deaths from his failed travel ban, and a shit ton from guns which he has done fuck all about. It's about Trump's hypocrisy about addressing safety, and his racist policies dressed up in the guise of "safety".

Re: The Islamic Terrorist Attack Thread

The reason it's the dumbest, aside from being incoherent, is the use of one word "ban". Banning guns is an impossibility. If the author believes that's a goal he's dumb.

Re: The Islamic Terrorist Attack Thread

That's not his point. If that's what you took away from it, you're either being purposefully obtuse, or just plain dumb, take your pick.

He's saying there's be zero attempt at addressing an issue that actually kills Americans (and no, he does not mean an out right gun ban, or anything, but just an attempt at something), while there's this bullshit attempt at curbing travel that would've done nothing to make us safer.

Re: The Islamic Terrorist Attack Thread

How about Qasim Rashid gives us the statistic of men, women and children killed by Islamic followers over the last 90 days in peaceful Muslim countries.

Re: The Islamic Terrorist Attack Thread

Nice deflection of the issue I brought up.

What about that one time that one guy did that thing?

I'm surprised you didn't say "BUTTHILLARY!!!", though it's from the same playbook.

Re: The Islamic Terrorist Attack Thread

Banning guns and banning travel are both equally impossible goals in our modern society. Anyone who aspouses either idea is an idiot. This Rashid guy is equal to Trump. And they both send out dumb tweets. Interesting.

Re: The Islamic Terrorist Attack Thread

No one is espousing banning guns, at least not outright. But crying crocodile tears over terrorism when you're far more likely to be shot by a toddler shows that you don't understand statistics and that your priorities are out of whack.

Then if you get shot by a rampaging toddler, don't come crying here about it.

It's not deflection, it's simple logical comparison.

And Rashid is using statistics from completely different criteria...mashing them together, in order to prove a point that exists only in his mind--well, a few others, I suppose as well.

More people die from heart disease every year than gun deaths, so why are Democrats so insanely preoccupied screaming at the top of their lungs, that guns are so bad...while smoking a cigarette and/or eating fatty foods.

Here's a statistic for you. The average Liberal is overweight and eats like shit. The average Liberal dies every single year, due to bad lifestyle choices...but are Democrats concerned?

Nope.
