Your visualization doesn’t reflect the whole reality. Most people who are dangerous don’t come across the border; they come in through ports of entry.
The numbers on this is 1s vs 1,000s. Because visitor visas, honestly, aren’t that hard to get, and terrorist organizations tend to have enough resources to get their people one & a plane ticket.
Organized terrorists with means, vs vulnerable people who might turn out be lone wolves down the line? It’s not hard to see what the higher priority should be here. Yet, you want to spend billions on the latter?
And that in of itself permeates discussions on terrorism just as much as it does for the left on Global warming; no sense of proportion. Failing to put the problems in context of the rest of the world we live in; instead, examining them in isolation.
If gun laws were because people with guns commit murders “in the moment”, then why have virtually NO CCW permit owners blasted people at random all over the place? Fact is, murder is in the MIND of the murderer…not in their guns.
BS. I wouldn’t trust the “data” from the VPC if they postulated that 1+1 = 2. Just because some anti-gun group SAYS something is so doesn’t mean that it IS so. You need to be just a BIT more skeptical of the pronunciations from such groups, AS.
I’m NOT saying that these people “don’t exist.” I’m saying that there’s no “proof” that they were CCW permit holders and/or members of the NRA. (If you’re one, you’re likely BOTH.). The VPC has an agenda and it’s decidedly anti-2nd Amendment and anti-private ownership of firearms. Like most “progressive” organizations, whatever they can do to hasten the day when government can confiscate firearms, the better.
