    From a previous post:



    The total of all assaults (not deaths) is as follows from FBI stats (table 15) for 2009 in keeping with the stats above:


    Firearm 146,650


    Knife 131,393


    Other 234,966


    Hands/fists 189,462


    Conclusion: of 702,471 assaults, firearms were used in 146,650.(believe includes police, law enforcement use of firearms). That would be .208 or 20% of assaults were with firearms. 80% of assaults were with other than firearms.

    "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."

    excerpt from the Breitbart article link above.

    In 2007, as an example, 1,263 children died from suffocation/strangulation homicides (accidents in separate category)

    138 children died as a result of firearms

    Naw, this topic will sink to the bottom faster then you can say walla walla bing bang, never to be heard from again no matter how factual it may be.

    Just made up a new definition for 'a sinker':)
