Any argument from "safety" is specious at best. Logically, using "safety" as the foundational argument requires support for gun safety legislation, work place safety regulations, environmental regulations (clean air/water), food safety, smoking and so on, if "safety" and protecting the population are his true aims. Yet, such regulations are not only not supported but are being reversed which clearly indicates "safety"is not his true purpose. Data clearly shows white supremacists have killed more than other groups, yet his administration is instructing the FBI to focus solely on Islamic Extremists. While consideration is due to external threats, his pressing the Islamic extremist point is solely intended to increase fear and anxiety in white Christians in an effort to assume greater powers to the Executive Branch and, once assumed, use them elsewhere.
