Ban on Assault Rifles? Why Isn’t Obama and Democrats Banning Knives, Hands, Fists, Feet and Bats … What About Shot Guns? … Ban DUI, Illegal Immigrants, They Kill More
THE BIG ASSAULT WEAPONS LIE … Is Obama going to enact new laws that ban knives, hands, feet and blunt objects like bats? What about shotguns? How about Illegal Immigrants?
One needs to look no further than the FBI data for murders in 2011 to understand that President Obama and Democrats are using the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy for their own political gain. They claim its about safety and the protecting of children. Really? This weekend in a ‘Meet the Press’ interview Obama said he was going to enact new gun measures in 2013. Did you know that according to the FBI that more people are murdered annually by knives, shot guns, objects, hands/fists/feet, DUI and by illegal immigrant DUI’s that assault weapons? Where is the hue & cry to ban illegals who commit a 9-11 every year with DUI deaths?
However, if you actually take a look at the murder stats complied by the FBI you will note that hand guns are actually the highest percentage of the cause of murders in the US, not assault rifles. When applying the unknown guns by percentage to hand guns, rifles and shot guns … rifles are responsible for 3.2%, shotguns 3.5% , knives 13.4% and other sharp objects , other weapons 13.1% , and hands/fists/feet 5.7%. That is correct, with all the attention and exploitation by Democrats and the community agitator in Chief Obama, more people are actually killed by shot guns than assault rifles. Especially when you factor in that the category below is all rifles, not just assault rifles. 2.5% more people were killed by one’s hands/fists and feet than by rifles. 11.2% more people were murdered by knives and other piercing objects than rifles. And 10.9% more people were killed by other blunt objects like bats than rifles.
Table 20 – FBI murder stats (see full table and results)
So why is there no talk about legislation to ban knives, other blunt force objects and hands/fists/feet/ when they kill more readily than rifles, hmm? I guess that will be next for Obama to go after. Make no mistake about it America, this is about gun control and weakening the 2nd Amendment, not protecting children.
What about DUI deaths in the United States? In 2010 an estimated 10,228 people who died in drunk driving crashes, accounting for 31% of all traffic deaths last year. Far more individuals were killed as a result of DUI than assault weapons yet where is the outcry from Barack Obama and Democrats about drunk driving?
US Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) quoted from a Congressional Report, “Drawing a Line in the Sand” which reveals 25 Americans are killed every day by illegal aliens. The estimate is 12 are murdered and 13 killed in traffic violations, mostly from drunk driving; over 9,000 Americans killed every year.
It’s all about exploiting the Sandy Hook Elementary school murders and the US Constitution, not protecting children. A ban will do nothing We need to look no further than to see the FBI stats to see that states like NY, IL and DC that have harsh gun laws are the highest in murders.

This whole exercise is all about removal of our second amendment rights. The socialists want to disarm the people so that they can control things.
I am glad to see your article included the death and destruction on a daily basis caused by illegal aliens. This is a huge cost to the American people.

Obama’s Soviet Mistake

He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so.
Ronald Reagan – 40th President of the USA (1981-1989)
“Back in 1927, an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for President on the Socialist Party ticket, said that the American people would never vote for socialism but he said under the name of liberalism the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program
Americans never give up your guns
By Stanislav Mishin
For those of us fighting for our traditional rights, the US 2nd Amendment is a rare light in an ever darkening room. Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases
Ronald Reagan – 40th President of the USA (1981-1989)
“There are those in America today who have come to depend absolutely on government for their security. And when government fails they seek to rectify that failure in the form of granting government more power. So, as government has failed to control crime and violence with the means given it by the Constitution, they seek to give it more power at the expense of the Constitution. But in doing so, in their willingness to give up their arms in the name of safety, they are really giving up their protection from what has always been the chief source of despotism — government.”
The problem also is, that most (not all) LEGAL owners of Firearms are somewhat responsible individuals.
When legal/illegal weapons get placed in the wrong hands-for the wrong reasons- obviously there is obviously going to be death and violence.
It’s not really difficult to get a weapon these days, legally or otherwise but DO NOT take away our Constitutional Right to bear Arms!
I ask you though- WHO REALLY HAS A NEED TO OWN A ASSAULT WEAPON? Who needs a M-16?? Does the average Joe or Janet American need a high powered assault weapon?
IMOO, the vetting process for owning an assault weapon should be more stringent as I believe those types of weapons should only be in the hands of certain individuals i.e, LE, SWAT, etc. and our Military or if required for specific employment.
Come on now- WHO NEEDS TO CARRY A WEAPON LIKE THAT?
On the other hand, if I want to carry a Glock, that’s my right. And if an avid Hunter needs a rifle, that is his/her right as well.
Illegal immigrants is a whole other factor- and don’t even get me going on that because it makes me want to spit nails!
