Dec. 3, 2015
We, the Central Mosque of Charleston, condemn deadly shooting spree in San Bernardino, California and offer condolences to the families of the victims. These are attacks on all of humanity and our thoughts and prayers are with the innocent victims, their families, and the communities.
President of CMC
- This is the 355th mass shooting this year in the United States.
- There have been 30,000 victims of gun violence.
- Muslims stand with the victims and demand that our government institute better gun control mechanism.
- Muslims and our mosques are very watchful of extremism, since we know that Muslims suffer more than other Americans when the perpetrators of violence are Muslims, due to backlash against our minority community.
Staggering Stats: There Have Been More Mass Shootings Than Days This Year
Despite only accounting for five percent of the global population, an astounding 31 percent of the world's mass shootings occur in the U.S. That sobering statistic from the University of Alabama Department of Criminal Justice was again brought to the forefront Wednesday, when a couple killed at least 14 people in San Bernardino, California — the deadliest mass shooting in the U.S. since the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, three years ago.
