FBI stats show hammers and clubs kill more people than rifles

 

hand and hammerWell, well, what do we have here, Sen. Dianne Feinstein? An article by Breitbart.com’s AWR Hawkins says that, according to FBI murder statistics, more murders are committed with hammers than with rifles.

Kind of puts a nail in Feinstein’s argument that it’s important to get “dangerous weapons of war” off the streets, doesn’t it?

Feinstein, the driving force behind the original assault weapons ban that lasted from 1994 to 2004, said she would introduce legislation to the new Congress calling for a new, more aggressive weapons ban in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.

The FBI statistics, from 2005 to 2011, show that more people were killed with “blunt instruments” like hammers and clubs than by rifles, which is what Feinstein wishes to ban again.

Hawkins wrote:

For example, in 2011, there were 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs. While the FBI makes is clear that some of the ‘murder by rifle’ numbers could be adjusted up slightly, when you take into account murders with non-categorized types of guns, it does not change the fact that their annual reports consistently show more lives are taken each year with these blunt objects than are taken with Feinstein’s dreaded rifle.

Feinstein may want to take a look at those numbers. Better yet, have her take a look at the fact that in 2011, more than double the amount of people killed with rifles were killed by — wait for it — “personal weapons” like hands and feet.  She needs to realize we need our rifles for self-defense against people with hands and hammers.

    if we limit or take away guns people will find a way one way or another.why don;t we hear more about the mental state of people and the mental abuse that we allow in schools and every day life -some of our children are so abusive to others.does it seem like words are more dangerous than guns by far when words are used wrongly.please think about that. JESUS with words saves our souls and loves every one of us.please hear JESUS.

    look no matter how many gun bans the government passes the criminals that comit these crimes are going to find ways to get guns. but also think about this the first thing hitler and stalin did when they got in power was take all the guns away from the poor for fear of rebelion. and if you want to know what we "gun nuts" want protection fron is the govenment.
