Would be interesting to see where these fit into the leading causes of death and the relative proportion of legislation changes for each of the causes.

This also highlights the importance of numeracy/math literacy in the world today. Any Chicken LIttle that can get in front of a microphone and proclaim that the sky is falling, due to terrorism, (of course) seems to too-easily find an audience of math half-wits that will rally behind them.

Gotta wonder what the stats say about the number of Trump supporters that have been killed in auto accidents as they were traveling to a rally to "save the United States from all of the crazy terrorists that are so likely to kill me and my family".

The odds definitely favor irony.
