Just exactly how many murders will it take to convince the Open Borders lobby, whose leader now seems to be President Bush, that mass Third World immigration is not such a good idea? Sam Francis, VDARE.com: 11/29/04 – Why Immigrants Kill
The answer seems to be a heck of a lot. Here are some, in no particular order.
Jamaican gunman Colin Ferguson, the Long Island Railroad killer
[W]e might, equally reasonably, expect to see balancing anecdotal coverage like this:
In February 1993, a gang of Middle Easterners, (mostly illegally overstaying after entering on non-immigrant visas—one banned as a terrorist but admitted on a tourist visa in error) blow up New York’s World Trade center, killing six and injuring more than 1,000!! In December 1993, a Jamaican immigrant (admitted as a student, but stayed, illegal status automatically regularized after marriage to a U.S. citizen) opens fire on commuters on New York’s Long Island Rail Road, killing six and wounding 19!!! WHAT’S GOING ON??!!?

That was in 1995, before the Internet. So was the case of Mir Aimal Kansi, who shot up the CIA headquarters, killing two, in 1993, and was executed in 2002.[Execution in Virginia]
New York, the site of the 9/11 attacks, has the worst “victim disarmament” laws in the country. You could start firing a pistol into any large group of New Yorkers and be fairly sure none of them could fire back.
In an earlier attack in 1997, a Palestinian named Ali Hassan Abu Kamal did just that. He opened fire on the top deck of the Empire State Building. Giuliani called for Floridians to disarm themselves, getting it exactly backward. [Reconquista, Terrorism, and Gun Control By James Fulford, October 17, 2001]
February 18, 2007 update on the 1997 shooting:
GAZA CITY – Ali Abu Kamal's relatives say they are tired of lying about why the Palestinian opened fire on the observation deck of Empire State Building, killing a tourist and injuring six other people before committing suicide. Riehl World View: Ali Abu Kamal's Attack Was Terrorism
Finally, the European press has decided who's at fault: Charlton Heston.
European Press Reactions: Blaming Charlton Heston – International – SPIEGEL ONLINE – News In the strongest editorialized image of the day, German cable news broadcaster NTV flashed an image of the former head of the National Rifle Association, the US gun lobby: In other words, blame rifle-wielding Charlton Heston for the 33 dead.
However, they don't seem to have any eyewitnesses who can place him on the scene. Mr. Heston, 82, is a native of the United States of America.
