Ban Hammers, Clubs, Fists and Feet

  • 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.
But don't let the facts get in the way of a good old panic-pushing agenda that has no basis in reality.

its not the weapon of choice its the intent of the person. If someone wants to murder someone they will use whatever is easiest and most accessible.

Hey NW Siders, your neighbor and State Senator, John Mulroe (endorsed by the FOP) would not man up and admit he was going to vote for Cullerton's gun ban. Mulroe and Cullerton swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, not liberal fantasies.

You shut

We're going to use this crisis to create constitutional challenges and jobs for the cities law department. Taxpayer money that we don't have, well spent, pissed away on lawyers.

It's THEIR entitlement!

Nyet nyet nyet! Uhhh... *Ahem!* No no no!

Don't LOOK HERE! Look over by THERE!

*Waving something colorful, sparkly and shiny that makes noise*

Look at this!
*Shake-Shake, Sparkle-Glitter-Shine, Fart Noise!*

Crime is Down!
Gay Marriage is our priority!
49 other states are wrong about letting their citizens arm and protect themselves!
We have more cops per capita!

*Shake-Shake, Sparkle-Glitter-Shine, Fart Noise!*

They who hijack the narrative, dictate the agenda especially in the absense of a directed response by an informed, highly pissed off, highly motivated public.

The exception being the gun owners back east who turned the tables on the media-mopes who cried "foul."

Alderfool Mell is stepping down so his daughter can fill in and continue to destroy Chicago. Mell is the clown that forgot to register his multiple handguns, so Daley made a one time exception and extended the registration so Mell could get his dozens of guns registered.

Democrats. Disarm and fleece the peasants. If they resist, send them to the gulag. They need to be used as fertilizer for the tree of liberty.

Hammers must be banned...and carpenters, too. Wait a minute. Wasn't there a famous carpenter about 2000 years ago who didn't bash anyone with a hammer? It's not easy being a democrat. Thinking hurts my head.

north side ryan:

have you tried to buy a gun any time in the past decade? too easy? you're mistaken.

and we're already required to keep receipts for all firearms transactions for 10 years. you would have a perpetual list? sorry, ain't flying here.

thanks for the civil discourse though.

to "skew the numbers"

listen here asshat - we don't owe you a forum to spout BS. we delete obvious lies and half-truths and things we know don't exist, even in the fever swamps of your imagination.

and we just love how you go right to the personal insults like a tiny brained liberal who doesn't get her way instead of trying to determine where you went afoul of the rules we set here.

boo-hoo-hoo. asshat.

If you look at the data cited in the link - there were roughly 13,636 homicides caused by weapons in 2009. 9,146 were murders with guns. Just under 1000 are labeled as "unknown". The rest are knives, clubs, hammers, etc. So...70% of homicides are done with guns. Not sure which side of the argument this supports.
