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.
Think about it: In 2005, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 445, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 605. In 2006, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 438, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 618. And so the list goes, with the actual numbers changing somewhat from year to year, yet the fact that more people are killed with blunt objects each year remains constant.
For example, in 2011, there was 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs.
Another interesting fact: According to the FBI, nearly twice as many people are killed by hands and fists each year than are killed by murderers who use rifles.

Gun bans, will never solve the problem. As you can see above, our WONDERFUL Federal Bureau of Investigation has that data, show that to the idiot in the oval office.
Maybe he'll want to make an executive order banning HAMMERS and CLUBS. Sorry little Billy no more baseball becasue your bat is now considered an illegal weapon!

If any of that were true, then you'd have a damn good point.

Usually its best to quote the original source (FBI website, or DOJ website as in my example earlier).
