Good heavens …

… Paul Davis On Crime: If I Had A Hammer: FBI Reports That More People Are Killed Each Year With Hammers, Clubs Than Rifles.

  1. A quick look at shows the 2010 figures with firearms accounting for 66% of all murders, with knives and other edged weapons at about 13%, other weapons, presumably including hammers & clubs at 14%, and hands and feet at 5%. Rifles do constitute a small proportion of the firearms, it is true. However, the number of persons killed by rifles at Sandy Hook was more than the number of murders by "other" for 2010 in quite a few of the states.
