Major Terrorist Threat in America: 33,000 Active Gangs

Good Day World!

International terrorism is the trending topic these days.

Some Americans worry about Syrian refugees coming to our country and bringing violence.

What they should really be concerned about is the immediate threat the entire nation faces right now; domestic terrorists, aka gangs.

Gang Violence Is on the Rise, Even as Overall Violence Declines

Gangs, from the West Coast to the East Coast, have murdered more innocent people than all of the combined attacks from international terrorists in this country – and that includes 911.

Startling fact: There are 33,000 active gangs in the United States.

Gang members targeted 9-year-old boy shot in alley

So, why isn’t this senseless ongoing slaughter a topic for presidential candidates? Could it be they’re afraid of alienating possible voters? There must be some reason why we continue to allow gangs to flourish.

Until our politicians prioritize going after these gangs on a national level (which should involve Homeland Security), there are steps that can be taken to combat these gangsters.

Time for me to walk on down the road…

Your column is along the lines of an artwork I did today that said:

"Terrorists Are Terrorists! They are not Bahá'í, Buddhist, Christian, Confucian, Druze, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Shintoist, Sikh, etc. Despite the murderous creeds the hateful advocate, no major religion teaches murder. Boasts of piety are disproved by terrorists’ reprehensible & sinful actions."

Good column, Dave.

Thanks Glenn!

Sure thing. Your point was spot-on. While terrorism gets the headlines for obvious reasons, gang violence and the dead and broken lives left in its wake is not as readily analyzed by many in this country.
