I think it shows that the banning of firearms in the USA would probably save a lot more lives annually than stopping Muslim visitors.
It's interesting that you can win an election by being racist and sexist but don't dare talking about taking away the right to keep a weapon that kills. This will almost certainly lose an election.

Songs of days passed they sang just…

Honen encouraged his followers to set aside special times for intense practice; half a day, or a whole day, or a week. We’ll be continuously chanting nembutsu for three hours this morning.
