American deaths in terrorism vs. gun violence in one graph

In this article it talks of Obama telling news organizations to compare gun deaths to American deaths by terrorism on US soil. Yes the numbers are staggering.

But I also think before we take a throw the baby out with the bath water approach to problem solving, we look at all types of solutions as well as the root of the problem we intend to solve. Maybe start with the idea in this article here about 5 extra words we can add to the second admendment.

Because we can throw out other staggering numbers, like these of deaths by automobile in the US during this exact same time period. It’s about 100k more than gun deaths. Should we ban cars?
