FBI statistics show that the Feinstein/Bloomberg gun grab has no factual basis. American’s odds of being killed by an assault rifle are close to zero.
WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – Annual FBI crime statistics show that more people are killed with clubs and hammers each year than by rifles or shotguns.
In 2011, there were 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs. There were 356 murders in which a shotgun was the deadly weapon of choice.
By contrast, there were eleven million automobile accidents and more than 35,000 people killed in automobile accidents in the US in 2011.
