Bird_Gunner45 said:I have previously shown numerous statistics that show that the instrument does matter. The terrorist attack in New York killed 8 with a truck. If he had a semi-automatic rifle he could have killed 26, like this idiot did, or 58 like the last one. Your argument absolutely does not hold up under any scrutiny.
If he had a 19-ton cargo truck he could have killed 86 people and injured 458 others, as happened in Nice on 14 July 2016.
If he had a rented truck and 7000 pounds of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, acetylene, nitromethane, diesel fuel, and explosives stolen from a quarry he could have killed 168 people and injured over 680 others - and caused over $650 million in property damage to over 300 buildings destroyed or damaged - as happened in Oklahoma City on 19 April 1955.
If he had an airline ticket and a boxcutter...
No gun? No problem.
