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?

solve for brain damage. screen SPECT scan. this guy has limited blood flow to frontal lobe and inflammation. most violent people have brain damage. add sensors to the trucks to detect body heat, auto brakes and disables engine if sensor doesn't work. trucks, guns, and tool or machine doesn't kill people. people kill people! Evolution is a religion. Democrats fight emotional/ vaporware enemies and attempt to limit effective tools. *****

Are you kidding? Are you and see just suggesting that betting trucks will solve the problem of terrorist truck attacks?

This "solution" is impractical because trucks are actually a very useful vehicle for transporting things that you cannot fit in a car. For example, lots of people rent a truck because they cannot afford the price of a mover. So, they simply rent a truck from a rental agency.

Does it ever occur to you that by enacting such ridiculous legislation, you are basically allowing the terrorists to win? One of the main goals of terrorist organizations is to disrupt the daily lives of the people in the country that you are attacking. By banning trucks, you are allowing that terrorist organization to achieve one of their goals. Do you really think caving into terrorists by disrupting our society is a way to win?

This guy is playing one of the classic Con Jobs of the right-wing Media, which is to Spin a news story for their right-wing Agenda, rather than make lives of American People better. In this case, the Con is: "Look there was a mass murder, Terror attack, using a Truck. And you dont see Liberals calling for banning Trucks, so then why are Liberals are calling for banning Guns when there is a mass killing by Guns"

Answer to which Con Job is already well provided by other members below.

But to summarize:

1- Trucks are used in 3 such acts of Murder/Terror. To be exact: this in NYC, the one in Nice and then one in Berlin.

2- OTOH, Guns and Assault Weapons were used in 99.9999% of Murders in USA.
And in fact as others have noted, if NYC did not have Ban on Assault Weapons, which it does, then this tragic act in NYC would have had many more Killed, as was the case in Las Vegas few Weeks back because Nevada does not have Ban pn Assault Weapons as NYC does.

World_Traveler,

mmerlinn is one of the right-wing trolls who infest this website to spread right-wing propaganda.

I have seen enough of his garbage to recognize it for what it is; garbage.

Good looking out though! Thank you!

Whats your point? That we should Ban all Trucks used in 0.01% mass killings?
Or should we not Ban Assault Weapons that are used in 99.99% of all mass killings?

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:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/29/opinion/americas-uzbekistan-problem.html
&
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.
