"Those 'scary' assault rifles account for fewer murders than people getting killed with knives or clubs or fists."

I'm going to asume you meant blunt objects instead of just clubs since the category is not broken out.

@Lando

Couldn't agree more. Only thing I'd disagree with is the mass stabbing statement. Check out the story from China. Mass school stabbings spanning from 2010-12. 25 dead, over 115 injured. The last one just happened to occur mere hours before Newtown.

Funny thing is, China plans on having security in all schools by the end of this year.

for a poulation of over 300 million 12 thousand murders is not too bad.
I always thought the problem was we dont have enough cold weather. Canada is very peaceful. But it is also very cold for most of the year. As the temperature goes up so do people's temper.

of course i'm just saying random stuff to see my post get longer cause i am very bored right now so I could be completely off base with that theory.

speaking of blunt objects does anyone have a lighter?

Those 'scary' assault rifles account for fewer murders than people getting killed with knives or clubs or fists.

Overall though, the rates are going down across the board after the assault weapons ban has expired.

I knew someone would be happy that the numbers were lower...BUT you STILL have over 12 000 murders in one year.

See, we're not so bad. Numbers are down across the board!
It's CNN FOX & other shows that pass for "news" that make it sound like we live in the wild west.

Things are looking good. We don't need more restrictions.

We've been over this before. Guns don't kill people, people do. And people could kill each other with a variety of methods if guns are not available. But these statistics say if a person is going to try to kill someone, having a gun makes the likelihood of succeeding in killing much greater, since guns are, in fact, made to kill things efficiently. So, guns don't kill people, but they make killing people a whole lot easier and more efficient.

Also it is pretty hard to kill multiple victims very quickly with any weapon other than guns. You never hear about a mass stabbing or mass bludgeoning, although you do hear of mass shootings. And, I do occasionally hear about a random bludgeoning murder, but there is rarely more than one victim.

But, I have absolutely no opinion about gun control, and sometimes I think I'm the only one who doesn't care one way or the other.

Nice, numbers down accross the board. The stats on explosives are kind of erratic.

Really, this again? Re-runs of IAB's greatest partisan hits?

???????

The figures show firearms as by far and away the leading cause. Blunt objects are waaaaay down in the numbers.

So why on earth are you pointing them out, as if it's some strange hypocrisy that we're focussing on guns?
