Scott Thompson: Gun crime is America’s ‘terrorism’
Many have said that if the sniper attack on concert goers in Las Vegas was terrorist-related U.S. President Donald Trump would be banging his Muslim ban drum 24/7.
But when it turns out to be a well-off American white guy, immediately the conversation turns silent.
Just another crazy wacko, nothing to see here.
The president has repeatedly chastised other world leaders for not taking a hard stance on terror and protecting their citizens from harm.
In many cases, in lieu of offering condolences.
But how long can one point at other countries for their inability to protect their citizens when more Americans die by a citizen’s gun than any terrorist attack?
In some countries, the death count in America by guns every year (30,000+) would be considered a civil war.
What America does not realize is that when it comes to killing, it is just as bad as the Middle East, just self-inflicted.
Gun crime is America’s ‘terrorism’, and tarnishes their image as much as any other.
Because it is should be easier to control.
