Husbands More Deadly Than Terrorists

"Last year Americans were less likely to be killed by Muslim terrorists than for being Muslim, according to Charles Kruzman of the University of North Carolina. The former is a risk of approximately one in six million; the latter, one in one million.

"The bottom line is that most years in the U.S., ladders kill far more Americans than Muslim terrorists do. Same with bathtubs. Ditto for stairs. And lightning.

"Above all, fear spouses: Husbands are incomparably more deadly in America than jihadist terrorists.
And husbands are so deadly in part because in America they have ready access to firearms, even when they have a history of violence. In other countries, brutish husbands put wives in hospitals; in America, they put them in graves."
