Your odds of being killed by a mass shooter are 37,000 to 1.?

Your odds of dying due to cancer are 7 to 1.

Your odds of dying in a car crash are 75 to 1.

Your odds of drowning are 1112 to 1.

Your odds of choking to death during a meal are 3,842 to 1.

Given the above statistics, isn't it kind of silly to worry about being the victim of a mass shooter?

    Fear mongering is a frequent used lib tactic, while at the sane time, accusing their opponents of it. Anything that benefits their agenda is plastered all over the news 24/7. While anything that shows them in the same light as what they accuse others of is buried, or deemed insignificant. Why are people so blind to this reality, if not for brainwashing?? It won’t be hard for them to institute a one party, complete control, government while people are inflicted with this blindness.

    "Your odds of being killed by a mass shooter are 37,000 to 1." That would mean 37,000 people are killed by a mass shooter for every one that isn't. This seems quite unlikely.

    What were those odds 5 years ago? 10? I'll bet a lot higher....

    So no, not at all. I can drive more safely. I can avoid known cancer causing issues. I can chew my food fully. I can practice my swimming and swim only in safe areas.

    What I cannot do is predict the random place in which a nut job with 1000 rounds he can fire off in 3 minutes will show up.

    I don't worry at all about being killed by a mass shooter.

    I worry a whole lot more about being shot while walking up to an ATM machine or walking through the parking garage at work in the early morning where drug deals are common.

    So society doesn't sustain any damage when we see a murder. It's NOT important.

      Far more people are killed in gang shootings than mass shootings, yet the former gets virtually no coverage compared to the latter.
