You're over 12.000 times more likely to be killed by a gun then by a terrorist attack.


In thew US there where 24 deaths from islamist terrorism between 2005 and 2015. But there where 301,797 gun deaths in the same period!! In the 70's and 80's the risk of a terrorist attack was greater then nowadays. You had the ETA, Red Brigade, Japanese Red Army,Baader-Meinhof Group. So what's the problem ?

    9/11 was in 2001 I was talking about the period 2005/2015. But as you said, the whole gang problems and lawlessness is never properly dealt with and a far bigger social problem then the once in a blue moon Moslim attack.
