Hammers Kill More People Than “Assault Weapons”

The most recent FBI crime stats show that more people were killed in 2017 with hammers and clubs than were killed with rifles of any kind.

Breitbart News reported the most recent numbers–those for 2017–on September 26, 2018. Those figures showed that 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed with rifles.

And it must be noted that the category of “rifles” used by the FBI includes bolt action, pump action, single shot, and semi-automatic, as well as those the left describes as “assault weapons.” This means only a percentage of the 403 deaths attributed to “rifles” would have been carried out with an “assault weapon.” So the gap between the number of persons beaten to death with hammers and clubs verses those killed with “assault weapons” would be even greater than the gap between those who died in a hammer/club attack versus those who died being shot with “rifles” of any kind.

Breitbart News also reported that the 2017 crime figures showed 1,591 people were killed with “knives or cutting instruments” while 403 were killed with “rifles.” This means nearly four times as many people were stabbed to death as were killed with any kind of rifle. (The gap between the number stabbed to death and the number of persons explicitly killed with an “assault weapon” would be even greater.)

Yet Democrats are pushing an “assault weapons” ban and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) says legislation for such a ban will be “front and center” when the Senate reconvenes.

LISTEN TO ME! Do NOT EVER give up your guns. When the Jewish Bolsheviks took over Russia and disarmed the people, they started a slaughter that has killed 100 million people.

You should buy as many guns as you can afford. You should stockpile ammunition. You should re-load your own ammo and teach your friends and family to shoot.

The Second-Amendment in America CAN NEVER BE REPEALED OR WATERED-DOWN. Any “assault-weapons ban” is a violation of the 2nd Amendment and must be put down BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.
