FBI: More People k!lled with Hammers, Clubs Each Year than Rifles






According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murd3rs committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murd3rs committed with a rifle.
This is an interesting fact, particularly amid the Democrats' feverish push to ban many different rifles, ostensibly to keep us safe of course.

However, it appears the zeal of Sens. like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) is misdirected. For in looking at the FBI numbers from 2005 to 2011, the number of murd3rs by hammers and clubs consistently exceeds the number of murd3rs committed with a rifle.

Think about it: In 2005, the number of murd3rs committed with a rifle was 445, while the number of murd3rs committed with hammers and clubs was 605. In 2006, the number of murd3rs committed with a rifle was 438, while the number of murd3rs committed with hammers and clubs was 618.

And so the list goes, with the actual numbers changing somewhat from year to year, yet the fact that more people are k!lled with blunt objects each year remains constant.

For example, in 2011, there was 323 murd3rs committed with a rifle but 496 murd3rs committed with hammers and clubs.

While the FBI makes is clear that some of the "murd3r by rifle" numbers could be adjusted up slightly, when you take into account murd3rs 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.

Another interesting fact: According to the FBI, nearly twice as many people are k!lled by hands and fists each year than are k!lled by murd3rers who use rifles.

The bottom line: A rifle ban is as illogical as it is unconstitutional. We face far greater danger from individuals armed with carpenters' tools and a caveman's stick.

And it seems fairly obvious that if more people had a gun, less people would be inclined to try to hit them in the head with a hammer

That should be obvious... If humans want to bad enough, many household appliances can be turned into weapons...

No one is saying hammers can't be used to k!ll, but that this is even on the news should be embarrassing. Guns are the only ones designed for the purpose of k!lling...

You just can't prevent some things like if someone chooses to turn a rock into a weapon, or a hammer, or a car... but you sure would've been able to prevent civilian gun de@ths had guns never been issued to the population...

The rational that some people have that x#xXX k!lls more people every year is dumb, stair probably k!ll more people every year then gun but a stair is not specifically made to k!ll. A gun has one purpose, to k!ll.

Lets not sugar coat the facts a change needs to be made, I do think people should be able to have guns, but extended clips and multiple guns ( on the order of 4+) needs to be banned

Breitbart was a clown, and his website has 0 credibility with that said, who cares if hammers k!ll more people? does that mean guns are infallible and nothing should be done to keep them out of the hands of people who shouldnt have them? Let me know when someone with a hammer k!lls 27 people in a mornings work. anyone trying to use this as an argument against trying to do something about guns is intellectually dishonest, or flat out stupid. You know what else prob k!lls more people than guns? sugar, cigarettes, automobile accidents etc.

Gun nuts are so annoying and lack basic common sense. I can't wait til they take these ni##as guns

They constantly prove that they're not smart. This thread being a prime example. These are not the people who need to be having dangerous weapons

The purpose of the article is to point out how absolutely impotent a law banning "assault weapons" would be on affecting our homicide numbers, due to the fact that very, very few homicides are carried out with rifles of ANY kind.

And no, changes as to what people can own don't need to be made. The Clinton ban on high capacity magazines did absolutely nothing to stop gun crime. The Virginia Tech shooter reloaded 17 times and still managed to go on the largest shooting spree in U.S history. People need to educate themselves on gun laws from both past and present, the statistical evidence of their efficacy, as well as guns in and of themselves before they open their big mouth and start rattling off a bunch of horse#### about what they think needs to be done.

Misinformed and uninformed people talk too much.

How about the Chinese guy who k!lled 22 that same week of the Newtown shooting, with a knife?

The point of the article is not to be used as an argument to do "nothing" about guns; it's to point out how absolutely ludicrous it is to pretend that banning particular semi-automatic rifles is going to put a dent in our nation's homicide rate. The reality is that the vast majority of gun crime is committed with an illegally owned handgun, and in big cities where gun laws are ironically as strict as they come.

Also, if you took the time to actually read the entire article, I wouldn't have to explain to you what the point of it was.

But let's end this on a productive note... What law would you propose that would've stopped the Connecticut shooting?

Breath of fresh air right here. That last line is ETHER. More gun laws WILL NOT change how many people die by guns. This #### is proven by our past. That thing people love to ignore.
