Balancing Fear: Why Counter-Terror Legislation was Blocked after the Oklahoma City and London Bombings What happens when legislation forwarded by the executive gets blocked by the legislature after terrorist attacks? The theory supported here holds that the executive is presented with an opportunity by the crisis created by a terrorist attack but that he is constrained by levels of mass fear public satisfaction ratings and political constellations. This paper exhibits the importance of my theory by showing how it
attacks are fleeting though terrible and tragic events. But the loss of liberties they too frequently portend can be permanent. Revised Theory Chart: 37 Executive Legislative Response and Passage of Attack Support Threat-Shaping Legislation (DV) Crisis (Int.V) (IV) X Approval of Legislative Enforcement of Executive/ Opposition Law (DV) Mass Fear (Int.V) X Political Competition and No. of Checks 38
