This Map DESTROYS the Lie That Most Mass Shootings Are By Muslims

As you might have heard from your conservative friends who watch Fox News and are proposing that we reject Syrian refugees because of the massacre in San Bernardino, most mass shootings are committed by Muslims.

Unfortunately for them, reality couldn’t be further from the truth.

As this timely map by the Washington Post indicates, only a tiny, minuscule, and negligible fraction of mass shootings last year were committed by Muslims:

In fact, only 3 out of hundreds of mass shootings in 2015 were committed by a Muslim suspect. Most were — you guessed it — committed by Christian males. 

So why is the far right freaking out? Because they are pushing a xenophobic, Islamophobic, and bigoted agenda that seeks to create mass hysteria in order to justify enriching the military-industrial complex with massive government contracts.

We must not let them get away with it. Make sure that all of your friends see this important and fact-filled map.
