A ban was recently enacted, then blocked by the judicial system. The ban was to keep Muslims from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen from entering the country to ‘prevent terrorism’.
So, I was wondering, if this ban went into effect, say, 10, 20, or 30 years ago, how many lives would it save? I have omitted random acts, and acts which were perpetrated by individuals born in the United States, or those born in countries that are allowed…
2016 Ohio State University attack:Knife/Vehicle attack born in Somalia, 1 death, the perpetrator.
2016 Minnesota Mall Stabbing:Knife attacker born in Somalia, 1 death, the perpetrator.
2010 Portland car bomb plot. Attempted bomber born in Somalia, no deaths. No Change?
2006 UNC SUV Attack. Attacker was born in Iran. No deaths. No Change?
Already 10 years back, and a whopping 2 deaths may of been prevented. And of those TWO deaths, both were the perpetrator.
I looked and looked, every other attack was US born, or born in countries not banned.
Let look at another 10 years:
2001, 9/11 NONE, I REPEAT NONE of the hijackers came from banned countries.
2007, Nothing I could find.
Let’s go back ANOTHER 10 years.
So, looking back 30 YEARS, I found exactly 2 lives that MAY of been saved with this Muslim ban. Those two live are the perpetrators, by the way.
