Terror threat actually negligible

Enough, people! This insane stampede to buy guns to protect you from ISIS, ISIL and al-Qaida is a false fear stirred up by the right wing rulers of this country through their far right extremists.

Let's review some statistics. You are five times as likely to be shot by a white Christian fundamentalist jihadist than a Muslim jihadist and 12 times as likely to be shot by a cop either in fear or mistaken identity. You are over 1,000 times as likely to be struck by lightning than being shot by either of these groups.

The less than 1 percent of Muslims who are hijacking their religion and engaging in murder - of way more Muslims than Christians - are no different than the less than 1 percent of the racist, hate-filled extremists hijacking Christianity with the blessings and jingoistic blather of our rulers and the likes of the Trump and his Trumpettes.

Three quarter million refugees into our United States since 9/11 and at best count three incidents of attacks from them. The Syrian refugees you want to block from this country are escaping from the same jihadists terrorizing you!

It takes 18-24 months of vetting for refugees from this region to acquire entry. When did we become such a nation of cowards?
