Capitol security incident would be more deadly if AR-15 involved, says Omar

Rep. Ilhan Omar, in a tweet offering her condolences for Friday’s Capitol attack, made a pitch for gun control. ’The death toll would have been worse if the assailant had an AR-15 instead of a knife,’ Omar wrote. This comes as Democrats have renewed their calls for gun control in light of three mass shootings over the last month.

Omar: Stares at sliced apples. Omar: These apples would be more of a dessert if someone baked a pie around them. Surprised that she didn't say that "A guy just did a thing..."

Hey, if Omar wants to teach Nation of Islam followers like the one she's referring to how to do a better job and give tactical propositions, she could teach them about how to scrap together bombs using legal and common-use general store chemicals and tools, or how to drive a truck with great efficiency through people.

"guns should be banned because people use them for violence, regardless of the majority of gun owners never commiting an offense" ... "Islam should be banned because people commit violence because of it, regardless of the fact most muslims are decent people". If you apply her logic to her own religion she should be banned from the country, yet she opposes "Muslim" travel bans 🤔

It would have been even more deadly witha bomb, and even more with several. It would have been even deadlier if it was a meteor that leveled the entire district. And even more deadly if it were a planet killing metwor that wiped out all life on earth... And water is wet. Can we say we're done with stating obvious outcomes on speculated events that didnt take place, or do we need more political grandstanding from useless politicians?

Yeah and I bet you would like it to have been a gun shooting. So y'all can really push the regulations on guns and manufacturers. I agree on stiffer gun background checks but thats it. 2nd amendment was writing for a reason. Thank God I live in Texas and don't see the democratic control states. Yes Texas has most all cities and countries democratic but the ones that live in my area and know how our economy and how it works and they know where the money comes from which is spilt 50/50 here. So we all get along to help the community I wish the federal government did the same. But you have to many puppeteers pulling strings for more POWER AND MONEY!!!!!

It would’ve been much worse if he had bombs, but he didn’t.

When it's suspected White Nationalist it's "we have to become more Totalitarian to protect ourselves". When it turns out to be Nation of Islam it's "here's how you could have done more damage".

It boggles the mind to try and understand why anyone voted for Omar--well other than the votes she paid for.

And it would have been worse if he had a nuclear bomb. But we aren't talking about hypothetical scenarios. If he didn't have a gun, surely that means the gun control already in place is sufficient?

Well she used a knife attack to push gun control. Why not double down and push for carbon taxes because he used his car as a battering ram. I feel she is upset because if the same logic is applied to this as other weaponised crimes then the government will have to start proposing taking anything sharp off the people. Put down that butter knife or I will taze you!

I think thats going a little far. I mean lets not play fantasy here he didn't have a gun so no one knows what the other outcome would of been. I mean I don't even know why someone would say such a €umb thing

The death toll would have been worse if the "some person (brother husband) who did something" ran over her Islamic fundamentalist a$$ with his car as well. I love hearing counter productive "what if's". If my mother had balls, she'd be my father

In the US 94% of all public shootings are stopped by a citizen with a gun. 98% of public shootings happen in a gun free zone. Guns save lives every day and restricting them is already costing lives. Why does Omar hate the citizens and want to stop us from protecting ourselves?

Let's be honest, if it were a hite guy, it would have been deadlier, he would have come prepared . Not just a butter knife to take down all of cap hill police and dc national guard... or it was just staged.
