    It is common knowledge that most "white" gun crimes go unreported or are not filed under gun crimes. For example, it's the reason why the number of child gun deaths/accidents is much much higher than what is actually reported by the police.

    I have to respond on the stronger economy with 3 points, only 1 of which Trump can claim credit for (and 1 which he will probably stay very quiet on):
    1. The economy was strengthening anyway before Trump took charge, so whoever was elected could claim that one. Many international economies have also strengthened. You can deny it if you want but it is fact, I found numerous sources online to support it.
    2. Business confidence has increased hugely under Trump. Although we'll see what the international trade wars do to that.
    3. The Budget deficit is growing with lower tax revenues and the recent tax bill has added another trillion dollars to the deficit.

    From the rest of the world, we are also pleasantly surprised that Trump isn't Hitler incarnate and hasn't blown up the world yet. But identifying a portion of the American community as criminals, putting some of them into camps, separating families and moving those camps into military bases where the world's media cannot monitor them is a number of worrying steps in the wrong direction.
    Also the move towards an international broad-ranging trade war is sheer lunacy. No doubt, Trump thinks that the rest of the world will just give in and let him have his way. The world markets have the power to cripple the US economy in a heartbeat but they themselves will suffer too. There will be no winners from that. We all benefit when we work together and communicate without barriers. Building walls with your neighbours and allies does the opposite.
    My personal view on Trump is that he might be good and he might be bad. He hasn't yet proven which he is. And he's taking his sweet time about it.
    [Again, note that I'm not from the US and barely know the difference between a Democrat and a Republican. To me, you're all Americans and you all need to decide if he's the right leader for your country].

    How is it that you know so much about "unreported gun crime in the US", when you live in Romania?

    In fact, you seem to know everything which is negative about "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in the US", and how to fix it.

    In fact, what you're spouting is uber leftist propaganda, which is no doubt regurgitated by Communist party loyalists, in you own "fake news sources".

    Frankly, I live in America, and I don't see a problem with gun crime. When it's gang members of one gang killing those of another, it's simply the Darwinian principles of "survival of the fittest", and "natural selection", being acted out. I mean for decades large cities have been called, "asphalt jungles", so why does any of what goes on over here even concern you?

    Basically we still have the right to bear arms, and the herd gets thinned out because of it, and none of that is you business, problem, or something you have to live with.

    Not to mention this thread >>>is about a gas pump being hacked,<<<< not any of the anti-American crap you just posted.

    If you don't like simple facts then that's your own problem.
    If you consider this: "children are killing themselves with guns" or "another year another school mass shooting" to be propaganda then you are obsessed with politics and just ignoring the writings on the wall.

    I don't care if you have a right to bear arms and that is not what is at stake here. A small gun should be enough just like in the rest of the world. You don't need an entire arsenal that would make the police in any other country look like they are playing with toys.

    Kids are dying because of stupidity and you only argument is that: "I need mah right to buy a rifle"

    FYI so what if I'm not american? I can't talk about it? like it or not the US affects the rest of the world a lot and the world has a voice.
    FYI 2: you can find more about what I said very easily, but then again, you are too scared to actually look it up because you know it is the truth.

    Oh you're always right! I definitely know that's your take on it..

    You're not always right, but you're never uncertain, is my take on it!

    Every time I force myself to listen to your nonsense, it becomes more and more apparent that English is not your native tongue.

    Because the crap which comes back from you, has absolutely nothing to do with what I actually said or meant.

    And really, Romania's opinion has little to no effect on the rest of the world. It's just a little country that got spun off with the rest the Warsaw pact nations which actually matter. (Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland, need I go on)?

    Like I said, better watch out, "Vlad the Imputiner" is coming back one day, better duck and cover..

    You just don't like the fact that it's easy to find fault in what you said. It's not a difficult topic. For me it's like talking to those flat earth believers. There are studies, there are examples, they have access to information, but they still can't be convinced. You probably won't be convinced even after a child gets shot in front of you.
    Like it or not the US has a huge gun problem and people like you are just ignoring it. I can only assume that you think it is normal for a child (even under 13) to have the legal right to own a rifle or a shotgun.

    What are you doing? Planning to have enough firepower to win a civil war or send hundreds of millions of people to invade some other country?

    And you keep using the "small country" to insult my opinion, but just like how you are ignoring children getting killed by guns in your country, you are ignoring the simple fact that it's not just Romanians, the entire world thinks it's stupid. (although you might find a few supporters in the terrorist camps that use kids as soldiers)

    We've had this discussion many times. I don't think we need to continue any further, you made it painfully clear multiple times that you are obsessed with your guns and you don't plan on changing that anytime soon.
