What I'm noting on Terrorism is that USA agencies specifically charged with protection from terrorism are completely ineffective. A complete waste of money. The Patriot Act and other laws have abridged our freedoms without improving security, ergo get rid of those laws and acts. Switch to a system that works, if there is such a thing. There will be great hue and cry and the Government will increase the budgets to these ineffective agencies and restrict some more freedoms and pretty soon we'll all be Corporate toadies. In the Corporate/Labor war, Corporate won. We're screwed!

2015 San Bernido Terrorist Attack
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_San_Bernardino_attack



Orlando, 49 dead, 53 injured
San Bernardino, 14 dead, 22 injured
Fort Hood 13 dead, 30 injured
Boston Marathon attack, 3 dead, 264 injured

Murder victims due to firearms:
1995: 13,790 dead
1996: 10,744 dead
1997: 10,729 dead
1998: 9257 dead
1999: 8480 dead
2000: 8661 dead
2001: 8719 dead
2002: 9369 dead
2003: 9638 dead
2004: 9326 dead
2005: 10,100 dead
2006: 10,177 dead
2007: 10,129 dead
2008: 9528 dead
2009: 9199 dead
2010: 8874 dead
2011: 8653 dead
2012: 8897 dead
2013: 8454 dead
2014: 8124 dead
2015: unavailable
2016: unavailable

Total victims of terrorism, 1995-2016: 3327 dead
Total firearm murder victims, 1995-2014: 190,848 dead.

If the average firearm murder victims remain consistent for 2015 and 2016, then we can scale up that number to a conservative figure of about 206,848 firearm murder deaths.

The reason why the deaths of firearm murder victims can be swept under the rug is clear: they made the critical error of not being murdered by Muslims.
