America’s Biggest Killers: The Chart Anti-Gunners Don’t Want You To See

What we are hearing from bloviating gun control advocates in America is nothing short of emotionally driven irrationality.

According to statistics assembled from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Center for Disease Control and the Federal Government, firearms related homicides are minuscule in comparison to other the other “big killers” in the United States.

If we look at homicide statistics in the United States it’s clear that more murders are committed with knives, bats, hammers and poisons than with firearms. As Kurt Nimmo recently noted, “ the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outpaces the number of murders committed with a rifle.”

The facts, not the drivel being spewed by the anti-gun propaganda machine, leave us wondering why some State and Federal lawmakers are so adamant about restricting the sale and ownership of handguns and rifles, especially since the majority of gun owners – close to 99% – have never committed a violent crime in their lives, let alone used a gun to do so.

Here is the chart they never want you to see.

Bogus Chart! Please do NOT forward!

My old friend, Harry Schneider, said it best:

Dear friends,

This bogus chart is making the rounds. Please do NOT forward it or cite it.

Traps like this are created by antis in the hope that well intentioned gun owners will lose credibility by forwarding them and even get in front of media and quote easily disprovable false statistics.

The chart doesn’t cite a year, but this link will show that the claim of using FBI statistics is totally bogus.

Truth is on our side – stick with provable facts.

what's bogus about it?

please explain...

both charts reveal (basically) the same numbers 12-14k a year for firearms deaths

these numbers are WAY lower than ANY of the other categories

Well, for example

the bogus chart suggests non-gun homicides occur about 44% more frequently than do homicides committed with guns. The FBI stats indicate about two thirds of homicides are committed with guns, about one third without guns, almost the opposite of the chart.

If you publicly argue with the bogus numbers, the media and other antis will use the FBI numbers to make you look like you haven't a clue and that you have an egregiously biased, unrealistic view; they will leave the general public with the idea that gun control advocates have won the argument, without the meat of the matter ever really being addressed.

I've been active for 40 years and I've seen this trick pulled before. The contradiction may seem like small potatoes, but when your opponents point it out, they will do it in a way that will, as the attorneys like to say, go straight to your credibility, i.e. everything else you say will be taken with a grain of salt.

Again, please don't use that chart, it is not accurate and it will only cost you credibility with the people you might try to convince by citing it.

How about

the anti-marijauna folks or the anti-Islamic folks not wanting to see this list? Seems marijuana and death by terrorism were too low to make the list.
