One of the terrorists who slaughtered 14 people at a California office’s holiday party was furious that her Muslim husband had to attend the festive luncheon, which was studded with Christmas decorations, police said.

Days before San Bernardino health inspector Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, launched their grisly terror attack on the county health department’s holiday celebration, Malik wrote online that she didn’t feel it was appropriate to mix work and holidays.

“She didn’t think that a Muslim should have to participate in a non-Muslim holiday or event,” San Bernardino police chief Jarrod Burguan told ABC News of Malik’s online terror prelude.

President Barack Obama is looking for ways to keep guns out of the hands of “a dangerous few” without depending on Congress to pass a law on the fraught subject of gun control.

He’s says he’ll meet his attorney general, Loretta Lynch, on Monday to see what executive actions might be possible. Steps to strengthen background checks could come this week.

“The gun lobby is loud and well organized in its defense of effortlessly available guns for anyone,” Obama said in his weekly radio address. “The rest of us are going to have to be just as passionate and well organized in our defense of our kids.”

A prominent advocacy group is trying to enlist basketball fans to do something about the scourge of gun violence in America.

Everytown for Gun Safety, in collaboration with the NBA, turned to top players like Steph Curry, Chris Paul, Joakim Noah and Carmelo Anthony to participate in an ad campaign against gun violence. The players joined with survivors and victims’ families in a series of short videos directed by Spike Lee.

In one of them, Curry recalls hearing about a little child who died from gun violence at age 3, the same age as his daughter Riley.

There Have Been More Mass Shootings This Year Than There Have Been Days

Americans were exposed to the terror of mass gun violence again on Wednesday, this time at a social services center in San Bernardino, California. The initial reports revealed a distressingly familiar pattern: A heavily armed active shooter or shooters, at least 14 people dead and more injured, harrowing images of law enforcement and first responders rushing to get the area under control, and stunned people — some of them wounded and bleeding — streaming out of the facility.

It seems like we’ve seen this time and time again. But mass shootings occur even more frequently than many people realize, because most of them don’t make the national news.

Over on Reddit, the Guns Are Cool community has compiled a list of every U.S. mass shooting this year. According to their count, Wednesday’s burst of violence was the 355th this year

Gunshots set the tempo for one of the most draining rhythms of American life.

Mass shootings, which have been about as consistent as the rise of the sun this year, are a constant source of tragedy and anxiety across the country. Again and again, the United States reacts to mass shootings with a ritualized bout of mourning as critics of the country’s gun policies slide into a well-worn cycle of horror, sadness and anger.

One established feature of this cycle is a chart that circulates across the Internet showing how exceptional the U.S. is in the developed world for the frequency of its gun deaths.

If We Treated Other Public Health Issues The Way The Pro-Gun Crowd Treats Shootings

Because saying, “Guns don’t kill people. People kill people,” isn’t good enough.

President Barack Obama’s address to the nation on Thursday, hours after a gunman rampaged through a community college in Roseburg, Oregon, was the 15th time he has delivered remarks about a mass shooting during his presidency. Noting that the previous 14 killing sprees had failed to stir Congress to tighten gun laws, he took a more aggressive tone this time.

“This is a political choice that we make to allow this to happen every few months in America,” said Obama. “We collectively are answerable to those families who lose their loved ones because of our inaction.”

The president went on to compare the nation’s response to gun violence with how we react to other kinds of tragedies.

Guns Kill An Average Of 36 People Every Day, And The Nation Doesn’t Even Blink

The nation was once again confronted with the horror of a deadly school shooting on Thursday, this time a massacre at a community college in Roseburg, Oregon. A gunman killed at least 10 people and wounded nine before police fatally shot him. It marked the 45th shooting on a school campus this year, according to Everytown for Gun Safety, a group pushing for legislative reforms to reduce gun violence. It was the 142nd shooting at a school since the December 2012 rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.

Those numbers alone may come as a surprise, because we typically don’t talk about school shootings unless they inflict a level of devastation that makes them impossible to ignore. Most people are familiar with Columbine and Sandy Hook. When we look at the bigger picture, however, those mass shootings are revealed as tragic outliers in the overall trend of gun violence that has infiltrated American schools.

On-campus shootings are themselves just a small part of U.S. gun violence. School shootings and even mass shootings — of which there have already been hundreds in 2015, according to some counts — are overshadowed, at least statistically, by the hail of bullets that rip through the nation each day, claiming an average of 36 lives.
