Gun violence vs pressure cooker violence

Reader comment on item: What's Trump's Policy on Visas for Muslims?

Submitted by Prashant (United States), Sep 18, 2016 at 02:20

Dear Dr Pipes,

Donald Trump is going win the election in November. I am not campaigning. I am predicting. Today Mrs Clinton very said very earnestly that she was running in the election to keep everyone safe from gun violence. Nice work but Mrs Clinton is thirty years behind the needs of our times. Today the world's problem is not gun violence. The world's primary problem today is the pressure cooker violence that we saw during Boston Marathon a couple of years ago and probably have seen in NYC again. And, ironically, most of our academicians, politicians, thought leaders, are not willing to even name the problem or admit its existence let alone being able to solve it.

Mr Trump may be the most incompetent person to solve this problem. May be he has no solutions to solve it or perhaps all of his solution will fail but, at least, he has the courage to admit that the problem exists and has the guts to call it by its name.

Never in the history of humanity violence was so well franchised out by its perpetrators as it is done today. Under the threat imposed by these freelance violence-entrepreneurs we are all under threat. And we are all want to be led by a leader who can call a spade a spade.
