Do we need to ban vehicles:Vehicles Becoming Favored Terrorist Attack Weapon ..

LONDON—The assailant in a deadly attack here Wednesday that left four people dead, including the attacker, used a weapon increasingly common in recent terrorist attacks: a road vehicle that typically draws little notice but can kill with devastating effect.

Details of the attack aren’t yet clear, but officials are calling it a terrorist incident. Just before 2:40 p.m., a small sport-utility vehicle slammed into pedestrians and police officers on Westminster Bridge, which spans the River Thames just in front of Westminster Palace, home of the British Parliament and a popular tourist spot. Two people were killed, and 40 injured, according to authorities.

The driver of the vehicle—police said they believed there was only one—then made it onto the grounds of Parliament, where this person stabbed a police officer to death before being shot and killed.

After saying Wednesday night that four people had been killed by the attacker, police on Thursday gave a lower death toll, saying that three people, including the officer killed at Parliament, had died.

It was the third major attack in Europe in less than a year in which a vehicle was used to kill individuals in incidents that authorities labeled terrorist attacks or terrorist-inspired attacks. Islamic State, the terror group that has claimed responsibility for a handful of attacks in Europe, has specifically called on sympathizers to use vehicles to kill.

And box trucks.

Apparently we must ban suv's also.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ..."

12. Are you one of those people who say silly stuff ...

 

get called on it, and then just start making shit up? (Never mind, rhetorical question.)

But just as a reminder: You posited "if we banned muslims", with no qualifications whatsoever. I pointed out that the Constitution expressly forbids such a ban. You respond with some wild bullshit that neither I, nor anyone else I'm aware of, has ever said.

Kind of tough to take you seriously, Sport.

13. So even though muslims hate Americans and the infidels we should let them into America?

I just don't get it muslims hate gays ,Christians,Americans etc but your little mind says "well yeah the Constitution says they can come here.....

15. Yup, my "little mind" says that Congress and our President ...

 

have to follow the law.

Laws can be changed and the Constitution can be amended. There are limitations which I could easily support, but until and if that happens, the comment to which I initially replied remains uninformed nonsense.

(But I LOVE the smilies! They add much needed gravitas to your argument.)

17. establishment of religion only applies to Americans not immigrants trying to enter America..

Same way as we dealt with Germans and Japanese in WW1 and WW2 we should treat muslims as the same....

10. I think on just a general question...

You might explain yourself.

I mean invoking the constitution and all.

I will go ahead and lament the fact you can't back that up.
