Default Time to ban trucks. Terrorist attack in NYC

Govt doesn't want to call it a terrorist attack yet
But it has all the ingredients.

No, it'll be another gun ban push from the left. Bloomturd will have a field day with it since it happened in NY.

Drove down a bike path, ran down a bunch of people, exits vehicle with "imitation firearms" and is shot by police.

Suspect in custody, apparently still alive. Good guys with guns using them to stop bad guys.

Imagine that...

He was shouting aloha snackbar. I won't say it.
Sad day. So many unarmed/unprotected joggers and bike riders became victims.
Hey Bloomy...that vehicle was registered. What now? Counseling for the misguided criminal?

This still comes back to the US having a improved vetting process for people wanting to come here.
Islamic Males have been the actors in these styles of attacks.
Time for the Gov't to be proactive to limit these types of attacks

Prime example of people carrying out a heinous act with whatever they can. It doesn't matter if they have a gun, bomb, truck, or shoe. Evil men will do evil deeds and will hurt people if that's their desire.

Why would they? He made no mention of Politics/Religion in his act...In this story's instance eyewitness reports claim that the NY terrorist specifically shouted "Allah is the greatest". Allah being his religious false idol + Murder = Terrorism.

This is pretty asinine...Motives matter.


Soldier kills 30 - Legal. Act of war
Lunatic kills 58 - Mass murder, No motive, just mental instability
Husband kills wife - Murder, crime of passion
Man runs over crowd of people - Terror in the name of his false idol
Homeowner kills 8 - Burglars, in self defense


The number of lives taken is not what dictates the classification of lives taken, but rather the "Why" behind it.

There are angry, crazy mass murderers and there are terrorist murderers. Terrorist murderers kill to advance a political or religious ideology. Either way, the dead people are just as dead, their loved ones grieve just as deeply. The difference is we can do something to reduce one, but not the other.

Might be off topic but do any of you realize that our former Muslim President has not condemned these acts?
Just my opinion is that he and his so called wife are at home celebrating this attack from his homeland. Flame me if you will, but prove me wrong!

You don't have to mention those things to be considered a terrorist. Stop letting the media instruct you what terrorism is. Terrorism is an act that is to scare people and change their lives. That was home grown terrorism that he did and folks want to dance around it. The shooting in the movie theatre was terrorism.

So haunted houses are terrorism? You mean when my wife is sleeping in the car and I yell real loud, slam on the brakes and hit the dashboard, I'm a terrorist?

"Home grown" my ***... such an idiotic description. Seems to imply that he became a terrorist and/or carried out this act because here lives here or being HERE bent and twisted his mind and actions. The only common thread these animals share is their 7th century "religion"... and that "religion" isn't home grown, it's called islam.

If that includes me needing to get a cavity search to rent a uhaul truck with car hauler count me out.

This guy used a simple 3/4 ton pickup.
