FOX News Nation Only 3 Days Behind Scared Monkeys Post on More People Killed With Fists, Hammers, Clubs and Knives than Rifles
File this one under the category of it’s better late than never … Hammers more deadly than rifles.
While the MSM, even FOX News, these days is more concerned with news pregnancy stories of Kim Kardashian, Lindsey Lohans’s never ending drunken episodes and other irrelevant celebrities like Honey Boo Boo … Fox News Nation has finally got around to publishing a story via Breitbart – Big Government that Scared Monkeys had posted on 12/31/12 regarding how more people are killed by fists/hands/feet, bats, hammers and knives than those evil assault rifles. With Democrats trying to exploit the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that sadly saw 26 individuals, including 20 children, murdered at the hands of a crazed gunman, it would appear that the Dems refuse to look at the statistical facts. We were only three days ahead of the news cycle of a link that was on the Drudge Report. Because far be it that a web site that covers high, medium and lw profile crimes against children be ahead of the game. According to FBI statistics more people are hammers, clubs, hands and fists than rifles. So does this mean that Democrats will attempt to ban Louisville Sluggers, hammers and individuals own hands? Q and O opines, should DiFi ban assault hammers? Are we going to have to register hammers, especially the scary looking dark colored ones?
According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murders 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 murders by hammers and clubs consistently exceeds the number of murders committed with a rifle.
Think about it: In 2005, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 445, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 605. In 2006, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 438, while the number of murders 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 killed with blunt objects each year remains constant.
Also, what SM found out during the review of murders is that more people were killed by DUI illegal immigrants than were killed by rifles. Imagine that, so will Democrats ban illegals immigrants for the safety of our children? NOT A CHANCE. Are Democrats really sincere about their protection of children, or is this gun grab just another example of Democrats not letting an opportunity go to waste?
UPDATE I: Just in case you thought this was misinformation, check out the FBI stats for yourself. BTW, check out the trend of total fire arm deaths, they are actually going down, not up.
