We know the anti-gunners are going to want to argue the validity of the source of these statistics (since it is the FBI after all), but we thought we would publish them anyway.
The newest figures are out from the FBI on crime in the United States. In 2011 the FBI’s numbers concluded that more people were killed with hammers and bats than with rifles, but the latest numbers show that even more were killed with these blunt objects than with rifles in 2012. The numbers show that deaths by hammers are on the rise while deaths by rifles are on the decline.
According to the FBI report, there were a total of 625 murders committed with rifles and shotguns in 2012. 322 of these murders were rifle related and 303 were shotgun related. Keep in mind that even Joe Biden is not calling for shotguns to be banned.
Meanwhile deaths by hammers, fists, and other blunt objects totaled 1,196 in 2012. 518 of these deaths were related to hammers and blunt objects, and 678 deaths were by fist. This means there were more deaths by fists than with shotguns and rifles combined.
Don’t look for these stats to highlight to next news hour on any major news outlet.
When you consider that gun-phobic politicians and activists are trying to ban semi-automatic rifles, when hammers and blunt objects are used in more murders by far, it makes you wonder if this is really about a specific firearm or all firearms in general.
As it has been stated before, guns are not the problem but a culture of violence. To attack the one and ignore the other will only result in more loss of life, all while stripping away more of our liberties.
