    Maybe with regards to gun control we should have a massive amount of checks, registration, restrictions and bans on males but not females, because statistics. You know in the last 10 years males have committed 126,100 murders while females have only committed 13,770 with some unknown in there? Murder in America - WSJ.com

    That's better statistics than you'll get for the idea that we should monitor Muslims more

    "Unfortunately, we have too many mosques in this country. There are too many people who are sympathetic to radical Islam. We should be looking at them more carefully. We should be finding out how we can infiltrate."


    "I think there’s been a lack of full cooperation from too many people in the Muslim community. And it’s a real threat here in this country."

    “[Y]ou could say that 80-85 percent of mosques in this country are controlled by Islamic fundamentalists.”

    “I know of any number of mosques in New York…where there are radicals in there.”

    Muslims are “an enemy living amongst us.”

    “They won’t turn in their own. They won’t tell what’s going on in the mosques. They won’t come forward and cooperate with the police.”

    This has nothing to do with common sense backed up by statistical evidence. This is playing a game of guilt by association and failure to make a distinction between correlation and causation.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Probably about the same time that Big Sis figures out that increased surveillance of, "white, right wing extremists", is just as stupid.

    Oh, wait...that's ok.

    It has to do with the statistical justification for your idea, if you're going to target a specific group like that then the exact same logic applies to targeting males over females for gun crime or any crime in general for that matter.
