What can be done about Terror attacks with Trucks as in New York city?

As most of you know, today there was a Terror attack in New York city by a Muslim Immigrant from Uzbekistan, where 8 were murdered. And none of them died from bullets! The murderer used a Truck, so it is now time to be talking about banning Trucks because they can be used as a mass murder weapon. A few months ago something similar happened in France. If we had banned Trucks after that incident, at least SIX people would be alive today! How many more people must die before we finally get around to banning Trucks?

Well be thankful New York City has Ban on Assault Weapons, or otherwise this horrendous tragedy in NYC would have been much worse, as per Las Vegas massacre where 59 Americans were Killed due to the killer there having access to Assault Weapons since Assault Weapons there like in most of US are not banned.
So the same Assault Weapons Ban that Republicans and right-wing Media, aka Fake News, oppose, SAVED the lives of Dozens and Dozens of People in NYC, because this Uzebki Psycho had no access to Assault Weapons.
Think about that.

1st, I did not know that New York City has Ban on Assault Weapons.
So now can you imagine how much WORSE the carnage would have been in NYC if this dirt ball had access to Assault Weapons!!!
And to think that Republicans and right-wing Media in US, oppose Ban on Assault Weapons which most likely just saved the lives of many in NYC, as such Ban if it went into USA country wide, would save the lives of 10s of 1000s of Americans per Year.

You know what is astonishing, is that I watched CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC & Fox; and NONE of them mentioned the fact that you have listed above. Which is this tragic Mass Murder, aka Terror, in New York City would have been much worse, if it was not for the fact that NYC has a Ban on Assault Weapons. Instead all you heard was the fact that the guy was a Muslim and which Mosque he went to and how wonderful the victims were. Everything but dealing with the fact that Assault Weapon Ban Worked.

1st, This so called Terrorist came from Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan is the Country that USA uses to run the NEVER Ending Afghanistan War, a War which has resulted in Killing of Countless of Afghan Civilians. So take the despicable tragic killings in New York city and Multiply them with 1000s of Civilians Killed. So you have the Afghanistan War under Obama_Bush_Trump to really blame for this guy being here and other reasons. Here:

&
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jul/17/civilian-deaths-in-afghanistan-war-at-record-high-says-un

With the above said, these tragic Killings in NYC by this slime bag would have been 10 Times higher, if NYC did not have Bans on Assault Weapons, which Republicans and right-wing Media oppose.

Reporter, Excellent points. Which of course you will never hear from right-wing Media, aka Fake News. So just think after the Vegas shooting by a White Christian were 59 Americans were Killed and 500+ injured, due to NO Ban on Assault Weapons in Nevada, Trump and Fox spewed:
"Lets not Politicize this tragedy in Vegas"
but after this tragedy in NYC, Trump and Fox have already spewed all sort of racial hate-mongering, even though this guy is here from Uzbekistan due to War Trump supports!

'I guess it's not too soon to politicize this tragedy, in New York City, as per Trump tweets. Feast your Eyes:

Reporter, that is another excellent fact to bring forward here.
That is this Terrorist came from Uzbekistan, which Uzbekistan is the epi-center of US War on Afghanistan. So if Obama Trump had Ended the War on Afghanistan, rather keep running it, then this guy would have likely never came to USA.

Well that is a real loaded question to sell the Republican right-wing Media Nuts agenda. So a crazy person such as this guy in New York city, will find an instrument such as a Truck to commit their despicable acts. Last thing we want to do is to then have the insane Gun laws that we have in most of USA, which would then allow such crazy People as this to then kill many more. To be exact, they have Bans on Assault Weapons in New York City, which you can read here:

https://www.nytimes.com/2015/10/20/nyregion/bans-on-assault-weapons-in-new-york-and-connecticut-are-upheld.html

So if NYC did not have Bans on Assault Weapons, as Nevada does not, as Florida does not, then this slime bag in NYC would have Killed many more than the tragic 8 that he has Killed, as the 59 Americans Killed and 500+ injured in Vegas due to NO Ban on Assault Weapons. But you being a Republican brain washed by the right-wing Media, such as Fox, rather than seeing it this way, spin it the Truck way! WOW :(

TG, excellent response man. As usual, Republicans and right-wing Media, want to Spin a few facts to sell their insane agenda. Such as in this case, focusing on the fact that the Killer used a Truck, and hence say: "Look, you want us to ban Trucks now to stop such killings", rather than focusing on the facts that:
1- Killings by Truck are rare, whereas Killings by Guns are a daily even in USA
2- If this scum in NYC had Assault Weapons he would have killed many more. So the Assault Weapons Ban

that Republicans and psychos on Fox and TalkRadio oppose, just SAVED the lives of at least 50 Americans, given the fact that the Vegas shooter whom was a White Christian, and a Millionaire to boot, KILLED 59 Americans and injured 500+ because he had Assault Weapons and was not limited to a Truck. But the psychos on Fox and TalkRadio instead of reporting these FACTS, are spinning the Truck used part of this tragedy to run the SCAM that this mmerlinn has used with his "loaded" question.

tiger_man, Man you have nailed it. So rather than focusing on the fact that the Bans on Assault Weapons in New York City, which Repugs, Fox and alt-right Media, aka FAKE News, oppose, they are focusing on the fact that this guy used a Truck to commit his murderous acts. Really telling where Repugs and right Medias Agenda lies.

My other question is: How in GODs name has New York passed a Ban on Assault Weapons and the courts there have upheld it, where other courts have struck down such Bans??

I can see two things on this blog:

1. None of you are true Americans.

2. You're extremely cold selfish people.

I'll say it again, "ISIS, cut off the heads of Americans while they were still alive!"

Focus on that for a moment.
Think about that for another moment.
Let it sink in, heads cut off.

TWN, you can tell yourself whatever lies and non-sense you want to tell yourself, or have Fox brain wash you with.

So ISIS is bad, no question about it. But 1st it is the creation of Bush/Clinton Iraq War. 2nd, we have far worse problems in this country which is creation of Republicans and right-wing Media, such as 59 Americans KILLED in Vegas and they done nothing about it.
