    @mcclark "White Christen men armed with military weapons have killed far more people in the US then ISIS could ever dream of. Las Vegas being the most recent example. I am not hearing calls for all white Christen males to be deported."

    That makes sense since there are far more white Christian males than ISIS members inside the US. Nevertheless, what exactly is your point? Do these deaths not matter until the numbers match the number killed by white Christian males? Also, I'd like to know how you know that these white males are Christian. Are they killing in the name of Christianity or because they are mentally ill?

    @Hutterite "We let them in and then tell, and show, them that they're not welcome here.
    I wonder how come they're so easily radicalised?"

    This guy literally won a lottery in Uzbekistan. Lucky for him, not lucky for national security. He is proof that we need to look very carefully at who is entering this country. Also, I don't kill someone just because I don't feel welcome in their home. Any Muslim coming here since 9/11 should know America is sensitive to Islamic terrorism.

    A common thread in many---certainly not all---of the terrorist attacks in the United States and a number of foreign countries is religion. Many terrorists acts since 2001 have been the result of Islamic (Muslim) extremists. I know of no terrorist or war-like acts in this same period of time or going back to the early 20th Century history of the LDS religion where any member of the LDS faith has committed mass murder.

    Please, please, Deseret News, do not imply these acts of terrorism are the result of President Trump or anyone in his administration.

    It's unfortunate, but not all cultures seem to be able to live together in peace and harmony. The good news is, however, that every man, woman and child on this planet has the ability to make our world a better place should we, as individuals, have the desire to do so.

    Oh, I get it. This is all our fault again. Unbelievable....
    I didn't say that, did I? The perpetrator, regardless of their motivation, bears the brunt of the responsibility. I'm just wondering if we should consider whether actions have consequences that contribute to an outcome, and if so that perhaps some actions are ill advised.
    It doesn't matter. This is, after all, not the time to politicise this event. We can't rush to harsh judgement. We must remember the victims, and offer thoughts and prayers.

    Americans open their hearts and arms to people who immigrate to our country. When some of these people start flying commercial airlines into buildings some of us start asking whether we should be a little more choosy about who we let in.

    I will admit that I start wondering when I hear about the practice of female mutilation that has come to our country. Google it for yourself.

    Who is the “white Christian male?” The Las Vegas shooter was not Christian. But nice job with the judgement.

    And according to the constitution you cannot deport your own citizens. Now those with green cards or people wanting to enter this country, we can scrutinize.

    When the killer jumped out of the of the truck after running people over he proclaimed "God is great" in Arabic not "Isis is great".

    Are we sure this is terrorism? Yeah, the note. Yeah, the nationality. Yeah, the religion. Yeah, the Allah Akbar thing? Yeah, all the ISIS stuff at his house. Yeah, the previous mowing down of people with trucks/cars/plows. Yeah, London and Barcelona and London again and again.

    Let's not get political here. Let's wait until CNN and MSNBC get all the information before coming to conclusion....the great bastions of non-political news reporting that they are.

    No one is suggesting that this terrorist attack was Chuck Schumer's fault but a lot of people like President Trump's desire to guard our borders and keep foreign criminals out.

    Do you have a problem with asking people to enter our country through the front door and not through an unlocked window?

    Uzbek self-radicalized terrorist kills eight people, we need barricades and walls! It's all Chuck Schumer's fault!

    Nevada man kills 59 people, it's too soon to politicize this!

    O h yes. There is no Islamic terror anywhere else unless it is caused by local affairs. Hmmm. Sorry we are in for generations of Islamic terror. But even if they win I am not sure there wouls be peace since the Sunni's and Shiites have been fighting for hundreds of years.

    Esquire - Springville, UT says: "From what we have seen, the problem we have with terrorism in the US is based on internal behavior and not much external threats."

    Please explain. Are you saying that we deserve terrorism because of something that we've done?
