More People Killed With Hammers and Clubs Each Year Than With Rifles

by AWR HAWKINS | Breitbart
3 Jan 2013

According to the FBI annual crime statistics, the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murders committed with a rifle.

This is an interesting fact, particularly amid the Democrats' feverish push to ban many different rifles, ostensibly to keep us safe of course.

However, it appears the zeal of Sens. like Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) is misdirected. For in looking at the FBI numbers from 2005 to 2011, the number of murders by hammers and clubs consistently exceeds the number of murders committed with a rifle.

My dad's uncle was killed

My dad's uncle was killed with a hammer. He was in his 80s when an illegal immigrant from Cuba bludgeoned him with a hammer at his doorstep. Uncle Dave knew something was up with this guy and had taken an insurance policy the week before and put my brother as the beneficiary. I guess if hammers had been illegal the murder would have never happened and Uncle Dave would have felt safe and not taken out the policy.

Also, we should be on guard about the banning of knives, hammers, and such actually...judging by what is going on in England. I've heard about people being prosecuted there for self defense against an attacker because they used a rock in self defense.

Nevada is a Class III state

Nevada is a Class III state so I can buy the 24 pound sledgehammers. :)

The background checks at Home Depot are pretty arduous and as I was buying my claw hammer, several people buying duct tape and lumber were eyeing me very nervously.

we just talking Rifles here or is this all guns?

The implication is clear...

We need to pressure our lawmakers to make it tougher for people to be able to buy hammers and clubs. Perhaps mandatory backround checks and a 5-10 day waiting period would help to curb hammer-related violence.

We live in a profoundly violent culture

It's sick that some people want to disarm us with so many sickos running around.

FBI? Did not their records disappear w/o a trace?

"Follow the money" That Mysterious Building 7

Building 7 [New York City], which also housed field offices of the SEC, FBI, CIA, NSA among others, contained tons of information on corporate fraud... ‘Enron' ® [style] could have put many, many individuals away for a few hundred years.
==================================================================

75% of New Yorkers Never Saw Footage of WTC Building 7

Request for comment (buried in the debris:

Building no 7 was reported to house the [field offices of] DoD, SEC, FBI and the CIA. let alone the Mayors Emergency center. IT was the Deutsche Bank Bank ® building, and may have have billions of gold reserves under it. What ever it housed it came down in a free fall, just as the towers did. And the fire from the towers DID not have anything to do with it.

Wasn't Building 7 FBI [field offices]? ... destroy... security ... records stored there?
====================================================================

No official investigation into disappearing FBI Field Office: Where, oh where did our field office go? Where oh where could it be?

A more serious note: Read China in this article on naming you kids...

http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/07/03/mf.baby.naming.laws/ind...

(Suggest you "save page as on this article) This has some dangerous considerations!

China requires that Children's Names be Easy to read by scanners!!!
