Orlando and Tools of Terrorism: Gun Control, Bombs, Knives and Fear

Will tighter gun controls lead to safer societies?

The terrorist attack on an Orlando nightclub has started yet another round of mainly emotional debate on the difficult issue of gun control. President Obama (and others) are attempting to use the mass killing of 49 people in a night club by a terrorist into a pivot point for the gun control debate. The debates, especially in the visual media, tend to be fact-free and reflect the agendas of the people involved rather than what is truly need: facts.

    Tighter muslim controls will lead to safer societies.

      Deporting all Muslims from countries in the West would be even better.

    Emperor Barry and his ilk want normal people disarmed and helpless.
    It doesn’t take a very vivid imagination to surmise why.

    Take away the guns and have a safe society like the ussr,cambodia under PolPot, Nazi Germany etc first they take your guns then they kill you safely. An armed society is a safe society.

      Yes, history confirms this over and over with no exceptions.
