Nearly five times as many murders are committed with knives than so-called “assault rifles,” according to the FBI.
The new crime statistics released by the agency reveal that out of 11,961 murders performed within the U.S. in 2014, 660 were committed unarmed, 1,567 were committed with knives and only 248 murders were known to have been committed using rifles of any type, including single-shot long arms and “assault rifles” routinely demonized by gun control groups.

How about the number of people bludgened to death with baseball bats? Will baseball bats be banned? What will baseball players do?
I am certain their will soon be an automobile ban, as the number of people killing people by driving on the wrong side of the road, excessive speed, DUI and DWI, not to mention thise who use cars to run away from crime scenes…
Something will have to be done about those evil cars…
Aperson intent to comitt murder will do so with what ever weapon he likes or is available. Be it a gun or a sharpened pencil!
Oh wow!so beautiful!
Fortunately, we still have the right to own a gun and to drive a car.
Stop giving the liberals ideas. The next thing ya know those leftist liberal wackos will try banning our kitchen knives.
This is one reason why I own a gun!
