    Has this been posted before? An interesting link from the Fall of 2016. The FBI needs to monitor toddlers, lightning, lawn mowers, busses, beds and... the biggest threat, armed Americans. :(

    We really do need to do something about these armed toddlers. You know America, the signs were there. Why didn't we listen?

    I have seen that list before, and I believe it was here.

    I'm of the opinion that middle eastern conservatism can't even begin to do as much harm to the United States as American conservatism regularly does.

    Armed toddlers don't win elections or appeal to certain Americans fixated on Islamic stereotypes though. Americas biggest killer is it's culture, but that is of little interest because it focuses on issues closer to home.

    They are covered by "shot by another American" which seems to treat being american as determined by a persons current location.

    With numbers like that, the government could double the spending on Homeland Security if the first category went from 2 to 3. That would be a 50% increase. Think about it. How many more $ Trillions to look at my bare feet at airport?

    Most of the busts around around here are for drunk driving, petit larceny / bad checks, bench warrants (failure to show up on the original charge), drug busts, endangerment of children usually related to drug busts. And, the ever more popular “criminal mischief” usually related to exotic forms of rage-driving, like drawing donut holes in someone’s property with a motorcycle, an old snowmobile or a demolition derby car.

    In the fall the alleged local “terrorists” (aka college students) will be back and the charges will revert to the cold weather pattern: mostly underage drinking and public performance of related bodily functions, euphemistically lumped under charges of disturbing the peace. Runner-up (and precedent) is having an open container of alcohol on the street.

    In the late fall we get some hunting-related injuries and arrests; most are about careless weapons handling. A few might be “accidents” -- with emphasis on the quotation marks.

    In winter it’s demi-bliss. Too cold to hang around outside making mischief. The drunks persist though, and once in awhile one of them takes a wrong turn going home, and then, unfortunately, sometimes their bodies are not found until springtime.

    The real terrorists as it turns out here are the ones texting while driving pickup trucks on the back roads at fairly high speeds; they know to keep away from the shoulder since the ditches are very deep. That means they're frequently centered in the roadway and so a threat to oncoming traffic, which there's more of nowadays: using back roads enables one to delay updating vehicle-related paperwork.

    So yeah, it's culture, all the way. But hey the idea of terrorists immigrating to the USA is frowned upon around here. We want to be safe. Plus we're growing our own. :rolleyes:

    I wonder how many of the 11,000 killed by other Americans with guns is gang on gang or thug violence? Those shouldn't even count since it's one scumbag killing another scumbag. Totally worthless people whom we ought to encourage shooting each other. I bet it's a huge percentage.

    Yep, in a land inhabited 99% by Americans it's easier to die at the hands of Americans. Incredibly surprising, right?
    What's the point of this table?

    We get that in Scotland too, but usually people are found the next morning having died of hypothermia yards from their doors. It's so predictable and so unnecessary. :(

    The point is that we shouldn't be sacrificing civil rights or engaging in prejudiced discrimination in immigration, which are extreme measures, due to a vanishingly small risk.
