InfoGraphic: Deaths by Terrorism vs Workplace vs Guns in the US Since 2000

It is also worth noting that out of the 3,033 deaths attributed to terrorism since 2000, 2,996 were from 9/11. More precisely since 9/11, only 33 deaths were from Muslim Terrorists versus 150,000 deaths from homicides in America. Of the 33, all were from mass shootings that are only classified as terrorism because the shooters were Muslim. Had the the shooters been a guy with orange hair who thought he was the joker, then mysteriously it suddenly becomes not-terrorism.

That means you are 4500 times more likely to be killed by a fellow American than by a Muslim jihadist and 1830 times more likely to be killed at work by some corner cutting company than Al Qaeda. So when the next regressive idiot on Fox News or on Talk Radio starts screaming for us to invade Iran, tell them to adequately fund and enforce work place safety inspections and do something about gun control first.
