Largely because, with the exception of the KKK, terrorist organizations in the US have been comparatively weak and have rarely targeted the government itself, prior to 9/11 the US had little experience in drafting specifically anti-terrorist legislation. Rather, terrorist like acts have traditionally been handled within the criminal justice system. The Orlando mass killer, like the shooter of doctors at abortion centers, have been tried for murder, not terrorism. Same for lesser crimes. Do you believe that given the new fact of terrorist threats within this country, the US should now go beyond the Patriot Acts in drafting anti-terrorist legislation, even if it walks a fine line between what is permitted and forbidden? Why or why not? Please make your reasoning explicit.respnd in about 500 words
