FBI: More people killed with knives, hammers, clubs and even feet than rifles in 2018

https://www.lawenforcementtoday.com/fbi ... ialnetwork

It’s the data that the mainstream media tends to bury when it doesn’t fit their agenda.

According to the FBI, more than five times as many people were killed in 2018 by knives, clubs and other cutting instruments than with rifles.

The metrics show that there were a total of 1,515 deaths by knives or other cutting instruments last year. Compare that against 297 people killed by rifles.

It’s a gap that widened significantly over 2017. In that year, the FBI said nearly four times as many people were stabbed to death as killed with rifles. During that year, the number of murders with rifles was around 400.

It gets better. More than 100 more people were killed with hammers and clubs in 2018 than were killed by rifles. There were 443 people killed with hammers, clubs, or other “blunt objects”.

We need to point out that the data isn’t just semiautomatic rifles – it’s ALL rifles, including bolt action, pump or lever action rifles as well.

If you were to contrast the numbers between JUST semiautomatic rifles and knife homicides, the gap would be even larger.

Here’s another number that will blow your mind. The data also shows that in 2018, there were 672 deaths from “fists, feet and other ‘personal weapons’” – which is once again more than with rifles.

In 2017, there were 692 people killed in the same way – a number larger than the total number of homicides by rifles and shotguns combined.

Yet you’ve got Democrat presidential hopeful Robert “Beto” O’Rourke campaigning on the confiscation of AR-15’s. Remember – last month during a Democrat debate, he said:

“Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.”

Numbers from the National Shooting Sports Foundation show that there are more than 16 million privately owned AR-15s in the United States.

Let’s look at the bigger picture, based on some 2016 data.

Rifles are only used in a small fraction of murders committed using firearms.

FBI data from that year showed that more than 7,100 people were killed using handguns, and that the vast majority of non-fatal crimes involving guns are also committed using handguns.

A 2012 study offers interesting reflections by a New Jersey intelligence center, which works in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

“Semiautomatic handguns are the weapon of choice for mass shootings,” the report notes.

According to the CDC, in 2017, six-in-ten gun-related deaths in the U.S. were suicides (23,854), while 37% were murders (14,542).

The rest were either unintentional (486), involved law enforcement (553) or had undetermined circumstances (338).

In 2017, gun suicides reached their highest recorded level … yet the number of gun murders remained far below the peak in 1993, when there were 18,253 gun homicides. Also during that time, overall violent crime levels in the U.S. were much higher than they are today.......

I'll tell you what rule we applied sir.
We applied rule 303.
We caught them and we shot them under rule 303!

They claim its impossible to knock on 20,000,000 doors and pick up all the illegal aliens but somehow they're going to knock on 150,000,000 doors and pick up all the guns. :roll:

Illegal aliens don’t threaten their power grab. Armed American Citizens do.

Nobody believes you and nobody cares. The choir knows they have facts on their side, but all anyone cares about is crying children on television. Wrong tactics completely.

We need outreach not rhetoric. We're dying out and not replacing ourselves in an era where we need to be growing. We only have a small handful of people here who are not fat old white men. That's not the future voting demographic, and demographics are destiny.

Best comment of the week!
I found interesting that more than twice the number of people were killed by either fist, elbow or a boot up an arse than all types of rifles. Years 2017 & 2018.

Go figure
