A Little Perspective on Your Chances of Being Killed by a Terrorist in the US


9 people have been killed a year, on average, by Muslim extremists in the US since 9/11.

12,843 people are killed a year, on average, by guns in the US.

37,000 people die every year, on average, in traffic accidents in the US.

According to a review by the CATO Institute, the chances of an American dying in a terrorist attack committed by a foreigner in the US stands at about one in 3.6 million. The breakdown includes attacks over a 41-year period and includes the 9/11 attack, in which 3,000 people died. Once you narrow it to refugees and and illegal immigrants, the threat is even smaller.

Even the Cato institute says that the chances are infinitesimally small.

Interesting statistic:

In 2015, there were 58 shootings committed by toddlers, or more than one every week. The drumbeat of tragic shootings involving children barely able to walk has continued unabated this year.


Does that mean that orange boy is now going to deport babies?
