Mass Shootings

John Lott has a report on mass shootings. A minority have any definite religious or political message. (Hat tip, hotair.com)

Based on this chart:

Religion: 68% have no mention of religion.

Of those with religion mentioned, 10% are Muslim.

The sum of all Christian denominations is 9%.

Buddhist, of all things, make up 1%.

Politics: 72% have no mention of politics.

Islamic extremism accounts for 10%.

“Conservative” and “Right-wing” each account for 3%, for a total of 6%.

“Liberal” and “Left-wing” account for 4%. So mass shootings due to Islamic extremism are equal to the mass shootings due to the political Left and Right, combined.

Somehow, we’re probably to infer from this that Muslims are being unfairly targeted or something.
