The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."…

Situations like that in LV are quickly scrutinized to determine the nationality of the alleged perpetrator to ascertain if he/she/they can be labeled terrorist … a label America reserves especially for non-Americans, principally Muslins/Islam.

“White” shooters are more apt to be labeled as “lone-wolf” or “emotionally-troubled” but rarely terrorists… Why…???

Does not the description of terrorism fit both categories of perpetrators…An individual who uses violence, terror, and intimidation to achieve a result…???  

Contemplate that “white” America, over time, became quite adept at terrorism, as it become our mode of preference in dealing with all indigenous people encountered as ‘we’ achieve Manifest Destiny…

It remains today our mode of choice, as epitomized by “W” Bush/Cheney in dealing with those thinking they control “oil”.

And in Trump world the “threat” of America unleashing its reputed military arsenal is often sufficient, in the moment, to cause a presumed foe to, in the moment … heel…

Is not America a terrorist…???
