Hammer Time: FBI Statistics Indicate More People Killed With Hammers and Clubs Than Rifles

Would a claw hammer be considered a high-capacity assault hammer?  Whatever, the need for more stringent hammer-control is glaringly apparent.  Based on this report…

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.

I shudder to think what liberals would want to do in regards to nail gun legislation.  Incidentally, would a nail gun be considered a semi-automatic hammer?

Murders aren’t simply being carried out with these tools however…

Another interesting fact: According to the FBI, nearly twice as many people are killed by hands and fists each year than are killed by murderers who use rifles.

Should we not then have more stringent background checks on one’s own hands?
When will the madness end?
