Preventing terrorism?

I have been monitoring the cable news outlets (mainly MSNBC and CNN, certainly NOT Fox News) following the NYC incident.

It seems to me that there is a lot of discussion directed at how to stop terrorists from coming into the country (immigration blocks, etc.) combined with identifying potential foreign activists that commit these acts.

What is missing is a discussion on how all of these same steps should be taken to identify potential domestic terrorists. We have lost more citizens from domestic acts of terrorism - like Las Vegas (58 dead), Charleston (9 dead), Orlando (59 dead) just to name a few, than all 'foreign' terrorists since Sept 11, 2001 COMBINED!

This VOX article is dated Sept 9, 2016 and doesn't reflect the recent attacks but the message is still crystal clear: we have more domestic terrorists than foreign.

I worry more about the jerk with a AR-15 with a white supremacist tattoo tag than an ISIS operative.
