But do they, really?



Don't forget to add the Islamist and Right-Wing numbers together, since the Islamists are right-wing.

Note also that most of the Islamist "incidents" were actually foiled before execution.

But here's the real kicker when it comes to looking at the data:



That's right: the white-skinned, Christian, born-and-bred-in-the-U.S.A terrorists often don't even get charged with their crimes anymore.

Things were different in 1999:
...in 1999, federal counterterrorism efforts were focused heavily on far-right radicals. This was in the wake of Timothy McVeigh’s 1995 truck bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City, which killed 168 people and injured 680; Eric Rudolph’s 1996 backpack bombing of the Atlanta Olympics, which killed one person and injured 111, followed by his bombings months later of a lesbian nightclub and an abortion clinic; and white supremacist Benjamin Smith’s 1999 shooting spree directed at blacks, Asians and Jews in cities across Illinois and Indiana, which left two people dead and nine wounded.
Then 9/11 happened, which had a huge body count, but was still just a single plan, carried out by just a few people.

Of course, the 9/11 terrorists were also right-wing terrorists. But ask the special snowflakes on the right about liberal protests, and you'd think every leftie was a member of the Weather Underground (despite that group only killing three people in eight years).

Non-white gun owners who are legally carrying and try to assist the officer by informing them of that fact.

This can't be stressed enough: the worst, most pathetic criticism I've heard about the situation is that Philando Castile should have kept his mouth shut because he was under no obligation to inform the police officer that he was carrying. It's the Republican version of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," except if you tell without asking you get killed instead of discharged.

Another life that gun prohibition would have saved.

How about the latest NRA ad?
This raises a question for “both sides” apostles: Can you think of a recent video anywhere near as vicious as this one from a left-wing group? I don’t mean some dude on Twitter. I mean some significant organization associated with mainstream liberalism. It’s an honest question. I don’t watch a lot of propaganda videos, so I could easily have missed something. Any takers?

No one is scared of a violent liberal threat. That's a smokescreen. They're frightened of liberal political power.

"Closed fist of truth". Well This sure is an eye opening ad by the NRA. Inciteful.
