American Gun Violence Holocaust:3,669 Americans Killed, 7,018 Injured by Other Americans, in Gun Violence, in the First 3 Months of 2017
All this is ignored by the war and gun industry agents in the media and politics, who only focus on spectacular mass shootings, particularly if they can make them appear related to terrorism.
They don't want to admit that the US has a major gun violence problem, caused basically by the continuous production and sales of all kinds of guns, and making them available to everybody who wants to buy them, even to mentally-ill people.
Tens of thousands of Americans are killed every year in domestic and workplace gun violence, tens of thousands more are injured. All of that is for the benefit of the gun industry, and indirectly for the benefit of the war industry, both of which promote violence in the United States.
Zionist-controlled politicians and media are dead silent about this continuous holocaust, which is perpetrated against the American people on daily basis. However, they wait for a rare gun shooting incident perpetrated by a Muslim, then they repeat mentioning it, as incitement against Muslims generally, and Muslim Americans in particular, ignoring the continuous American holocaust, which is perpetrated by non-Muslims.
The objective is to justify the continuous US wars and invasions of the Muslim World since 1990, in order for the war industry beneficiaries to justify the enormous and unprecedented US national debt, which has reached more than $19 trillion, as a result of the permanent-war military spending.
For example, in 2016, there were 58,241shooting incidents, including 385 mass shooting, resulting in the killing of 15,060 Americans and injuring 30,607. Of these, there was only one incident perpetrated by a Muslim and resulting in the killing of 49 people in an Orlando, Florida night club.
The Zionist media, together with the war industry agents and the Zionist-controlled politicians, kept mentioning this incident as a terrorist attack, just because the perpetrator was a Muslim, while totally ignoring the other 58,240 incidents, which resulted in the killing of 15,011 Americans!
In 2015, there were 53,228 shooting incidents, resulting in the killing of 13,415 Americans. Of these, there were only two incidents perpetrated by Muslims and resulting in the killing of 18 Americans.
The Zionist media, together with the war industry agents and Zionist-controlled politicians, kept mentioning these two incidents while totally ignoring the other 53,226 incidents, which resulted in the killing of 13,398 Americans!
The end outcome is that the American people are indeed actual victims of a continuous warmongering campaign, Islamophobia, and a daily holocaust, perpetrated against them by the war industry beneficiaries and their agents in the media and politics.
For a background, read:
In 2016, there were 15,001 Americans who were killed and 30,586 who were injured by other Americans, in 58,002 incidents of gun violence, including 385 mass shootings and 2,184 accidental shootings.
In 2015, there were 13,415 Americans who were killed and 27,000 who were injured by other Americans in 53,226 incidents of gun violence, including 330 mass shootings.
In 2014, there were 12,588 Americans who were killed and 23,035 who were injured by other Americans in 51,811 incidents of gun violence, including 280 mass shootings.
Here's just one of the stories of the thousands of shootings in the U.S., which led to the killing of Americans for the benefit of the gun and war industry:
