A little kid finds a gun, fires it, and hurts or kills himself or someone else. These cases rarely bubble up to the national level except when someone, like a parent, ends up dead ...
But cases like this happen a lot more frequently than you might think. After spending a few hours sifting through news reports, I've found at least 43 instances this year of somebody being shot by a toddler 3 or younger. In 31 of those 43 cases, a toddler found a gun and shot himself or herself.
When that article was published on Oct 14th, there had only been 43 toddler shooting incidents. Since then, there have been 9 more, with an average of one toddler involved shooting a week<. Yet, in this year's only shooting involving Islamic terrorists in
five people died, with two additional people being injured. Chattanooga, Tennessee
Even using the broadest leeway in counting
victims of "Islamic terrorism" leads to the same mathematical
conclusion: More Americans were shot and killed by toddlers in 2015 than were
killed by Islamic terrorists. U.S.
