New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof believes 'husbands are deadlier than terrorists.'

He begins his op-ed by stating that refugees and guns are critical issues today and that there is a disconnect between the dangers associated with the two topics. For instance, "In the four decades between 1975 and 2015, terrorists born in the seven nations in Trump’s travel ban killed zero people in America, according to the Cato Institute. Zero. In that same period, guns claimed 1.34 million lives in America, including murders, suicides and accidents."

Therefore, Kristof argues that guns are more deadly than terrorists. So if we really want to debate the safety of Americans, we should refocus our efforts on gun control and not immigrants. Kristof continues, "Above all, fear spouses: Husbands are incomparably more deadly in America than jihadist terrorists. And husbands are so deadly in part because in America they have ready access to firearms, even when they have a history of violence. In other countries, brutish husbands put wives in hospitals; in America, they put them in graves."
