Homicides By Weapon Type in the US

Post by 93henfan »

Rifles are a hot topic at the moment. They're very scary to a lot of very sensitive people. But, this fear of rifles may be misguided, if they are hoping to pursue an approach of banning the most likely weapons that kill people in the US.

Per the 2017 FBI Uniform Crime Report, in the US, the number of homicides committed by weapon type were:

Knives - 1,591
Personal weapons (hands, fists, feet, etc.) - 692
Blunt objects (clubs, hammers, etc.) - 467
Rifles - 403

So to me, it sounds like common cutlery, human appendages, and hammers are the real enemy here.

Discuss. :coffee:

PS. In the non-homicide realm, motor vehicles killed 40,100 Americans in the same period. (110 people a day)

I could spoon-feed you the link, but I'd rather you work a little.

Also, if your strategy is to refute with handgun statistics, that'd be changing the argument. You liberals are all about banning the scary, black rifles, so let's stay in that lane, k thanks bye.

Yeah I was going to ask where the handgun deaths were .... since they make up the vast, vast majority of firearm deaths.

But let’s ban the assault rifles yep

It’s like banning carcinogenic fabrics in automobiles because its one of the ways cars can kill you

BTW forget knives.... let’s talk about blunt objects... blunt objects are the weapon of choice more than all rifle types combined

"You Liberals"..?
Powerful argument

Anyway - I don't believe anything you posted because "Link"
I'm absolutely positive BDKJMU will be asking for the Link as well - he's a stickler that way

I bet Houndy can knock the cans off the fence post at 100 yds. You other two would probably shoot your eyes out.

If I’m reading the 2017 FBI link correctly and your opening post there were more homicides with hammers and blunt objects than with rifles of all types. Why are we hung up on a subset of rifles and ignoring hammers?

Not to mention 876,000 deaths by abortion in the US in 2017.

I'm surprised there were only 13 by poison.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

Rifles are the main issue with libs, because if they can get the rifles,they get control with no resistance. First thing the National SOCIALISTS did in Germany was get the guns,

I'd bet a lot of people who are poisoned are never autopsied and don't make the stat. Especially if it's a gradual poisoning like a lot of these wackadoo women do to their kids and husbands.

You can make fun of the “theyre comin for my guns” crowd all you like

But the histrionics and irrationality over what makes up almost a rounding error in the overall percentage of gun deaths doesn’t exactly spur confidence in the intentions of gun control types

There’s plenty if fact-challenged crazy to go around for all of us
