house Bill H.R. 1931

Should Federal Law Enforcement Agencies Collaborate to Prevent Domestic Terrorism?

Argument in favor

White supremacist terrorism is a growing threat, as evidenced by recent shootings at houses of worship across the country. It’s important for the federal government to address this threat to ensure communities’ safety.

Yes. Any kind of “I found it first” mentality is simply childish. The goal is to stop the terrorism. Why can’t we acknowledge our differences as positives and work together?

Domestic terrorism is a problem which is unlikely to be addressed by the current, corrupt Republican party for two reasons. First, the risk of such terrorism can be used to spur more gun ownership, which the NRA pays Republicans to promote. Second, “There are some very fine people...”. on that side according to Trump. Since the Republican Party has no spine to deter Trump’s admiration and support for these extremists, no legislation will get through the senate on this topic.

I’m so surprised that something like this hasn’t already been set up. Domestic terrorists, neonazis, other hate groups are so much more active in this country now

Argument opposed

White supremacist terrorism is a much smaller threat to U.S. safety than international terrorism from groups such as al-Qaeda and ISIS. The federal government shouldn’t waste its time on a few bad actors in the country when there are bigger threats elsewhere.

The entire reason DHS was created was to coordinate anti-terrorism efforts between the various federal and state agencies because of a lack of coordination before 9/11. If this bill is needed it only means DHS has failed to do its job.

Nonsense. Far right is not the greatest threat. The KKK is down to 5-8,000 members. The greatest threat is the left Antifa, which is a misnomer. They imploy fascist tools to attempt to silence anyone who doesn't hold with Marxism. Given the ignorance in this country - and group - they're successful. #ReadABook

Law enforcement already coordinates data on criminal cases from shoplifting to murder. Right wing terrorism is overblown and used by leftists for fearmongering. Right wing groups are usually local and ill-organized. We don't need a law enforcement sledgehammer to kill a Klukker fly.

    It’s doesn’t take the mind of a genius to come to that conclusion,especially when domestic terrorizing is on the up. Something must be done to protect innocents people.

    Domestic terrorism is currently the greatest threat to all our safety. The extreme right refuses common sense gun reform and increased hate crime enforcement, and the only way to protect most Americans is for law enforcement to coordinate better to find and stop domestic terrorism of all types. Our churches, schools, nightclubs, restaurants, and public spaces are at risk every day.

    Nearly all of the terrorist attacks we have suffered over the past 35 years have been committed by white supremacists. It's time to stop ignoring this problem.

    The wording “white supremacists”, I think should be corrected. Terrorism can be conducted by others and the law should not be limited in that way.

    I am surprised that we need legislation to get these agencies to coordinate in addressing domestic terrorism. I think domestic terrorism is a growing issue and is far broader than just white supremacists. I am saddened to feel the need to extend this to any domestic group that is organized to conduct, sponsor or encourage acts of terrorism within our borders. This would include cells sponsored by ISIS and others, as well as groups organized and coordinated by foreign governments.

    It’s been the most common form of terrorism in the US since 9-11 and it was the most common form here before 9-11.

    Domestic terrorists have guns. If guns were regulated and kept out of the hands of extremists domestic terrorism would be reduced.

    As long as they’re all trying to stop terrorism I don’t care how they do it. They should all be sharing info and not being making sure their acronym gets the credit. I’m sure they all want to stop terrorism so that isn’t meant as a shot at the agencies themselves just would hope something wouldn’t happen where the FBI wouldn’t tell the CIA something just so they could look better. Maybe joint task forces are a better way to go? LIKE MY TAKE? GIVE ME A FOLLOW

    The most destructive and lethal attacks in and on the United States have been from domestic terrorists. Not Muslims, not Hispanics, but home-grown white nationalists who see Donald Trump and Rick Spencer as their heroes and leaders. The sharing of information among law enforcement agencies to coordinate their efforts in combating these threats will be an important tool.
