We need a constitutional amendment that bars terrorists from being in America.

No, we don't. We have the Patriot Act.

This is an example of the utter failure of Homeland Security and our very lax immigration laws. How about keeping the haters of the USA in their own country?

These people were brought here and put on welfare handouts, they have benefitted this country in no way at all. If we can't find better immigrants, just stop having immigrants.

What a terrible equivalency.

Cars serve a dozen useful purposes that don't involve violence, guns are used to shoot things, period.

So shooting a bad guy is not a useful purpose?

Obviously you're a little slow, but can you agree that shooting someone is a violent act? Jesus Christ...

Who gets to decide who is a potential terrorist?

You can use it for sports, no violence there.

Shoot things like rattle snakes, rats, dangerous animals?? Guns are good things to me. That is because guns were used in a good way to protect me when I was growing up in the middle of 100 acres. A gun isn't any more violent than a car. And limiting guns will have no influence on terrorists. They will have guns and if the government makes it against the law; law-abiding people will not. Makes no sense.

This last terrorist plot was allowed because of political correctness is my opinion. Our country was told the man needed to be watched and we were so politically correct that we knew better. I think it is time to stop being so concerned with the feelings of people flooding into this country and start being concerned with the lives of those of us that keep this country strong and our safety.
