American Deaths From Gun Violence vs. Terrorism, in One Chart
There were more than 316,000 firearm deaths between 2004 and 2013, compared to 313 terrorism deaths (no, that’s not missing any zeros)
In his speech last night, after the gun rampage at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, President Obama made an unusual request:
„I would ask news organizations [to] tally up the number of Americans who’ve been killed through terrorist attacks over the last decade and the number of Americans who’ve been killed by gun violence, and post those side-by-side on your news reports.“
The figures from 2004-2013 below – compiled from the CDC and the State Department – are conscience-shocking, and also shocking from a public policy perspective.
As President Obama noted:
„We spend over a trillion dollars, and pass countless laws, and devote entire agencies to preventing terrorist attacks on our soil, and rightfully so. And yet, we have a Congress that explicitly blocks us from even collecting data on how we could potentially reduce gun deaths. How can that be?“
American deaths in terrorism vs. gun violence in one graph
(CNN)During his presidency, President Barack Obama has had to deliver statements on gun violence 15 times.
After a gunman opened fire at Oregon’s Umpqua Community College, killing nine people and injuring seven, a visibly upset Obama said the shootings were becoming all too routine.
The gunman also died, although it’s unclear whether he was shot by police or committed suicide.
„The reporting is routine,“ Obama said. „My response here at this podium ends up being routine, the conversation in the aftermath of it. We’ve become numb to this.“
He then asked news organizations to tally up the number of Americans killed through terrorist attacks in the last decade and compare it with the number of Americans who have died in gun violence.
Using numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we found that from 2001 to 2013, 406,496 people died by firearms on U.S. soil. (2013 is the most recent year CDC data for deaths by firearms is available.) This data covered all manners of death, including homicide, accident and suicide.
According to the U.S. State Department, the number of U.S. citizens killed overseas as a result of incidents of terrorism from 2001 to 2013 was 350.
In addition, we compiled all terrorism incidents inside the U.S. and found that between 2001 and 2013, there were 3,030 people killed in domestic acts of terrorism.* This brings the total to 3,380.
