Sarah Lyons-Padilla (apparently a research scientist at Stanford SPARQ: Social Psychological Answers to Real-world Questions) thinks she has the magic bullet to prevent atrocities like Orlando.

You'll never guess what it is...
...excluding Muslims is more likely to exacerbate terrorist tendencies, while welcoming Muslims is more likely to quell radicalization.
You'll note that, as of 06:20am this morning, this editorial, posted at 7:00pm last night, is not open for comment.
Many assume that people who commit terrorist attacks in the name of Islam are religious zealots. Actually, many Muslim radicals were not particularly religious at the get-go. Indeed, a substantial number of Isis sympathizers are converts to Islam – hardly lifelong devotees.
So we should ignore their stated aims, their confessions, their admiration of other terrorist atrocities (even as the latest attack gets under way) and listen to people like Sarah.

What could possibly go wrong?
