Gavin McInnes: ‘What’s worse, being killed by a terrorist or being killed by a mass shooter?’

So much of these two opposing Americas come down to a simple question: What’s worse, being killed by a terrorist or being killed by a mass shooter? The left insists all this terrorism talk is just fearmongering that vilifies Muslims. The right insists all this gun-control talk is just fearmongering that vilifies guns. The odds of either thing happening to you or anyone you know are negligible. Even if you were working in Manhattan on 9/11 the odds of you dying were a fraction of a percent. Mass shootings are even rarer, with only a handful of people dying every year. In fact, France suffered more terror casualties in one year than America had mass-shooting casualties over Obama’s entire presidency.
Though these two threats seem similar, they couldn’t be more different. One is an unpreventable freak occurrence and the other is part of a general trend to wipe out the West.
