Vox, following the Orlando gay nightclub shooting: More people killed in mass shootings than days this year

We’re 164 days into 2016…133 mass shootings.

There have been 76 days this year with mass shootings in the United States — and 88 days without. A total of 207 people have died in those incidents.

Sounds dire.

Oh wait…

“Mass shootings” (defined by Gun Violence Archive as “4 or more shot and/or killed in a single event) is among the least common causes of death in America.

Even if the number of mass shootings per year tripled– and then quadrupled, and then multiplied by 100– your odds of being massacred would still be less 1 percent…which is to say, virtually ZERO.

Chupacabra

Statistically speaking, the chances of dying in a mass shooting or getting killed by Islamic terrorists are roughly equal to that of getting eaten by the mythical Chupacabra.
