    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.

    Shocking because it reflects the statistics.

    FACTS only confuse the liberal, their agenda is all they believe in and truth is not part of the equation.

    Just listen to the Democrat pundents/talking heads/strategist on any news channel. SOS out of their mouths day in and day out.

    ONLY a LIV agrees with them. The rest of us rely the truth and can tell the difference.

    That's why they've pulled out all the stops on the Aussie who got murdered in a racist hate crime. They're threatening to boycott America until we ban guns.

    Screw'em. The fewer liberal sheep at vacation spots the better.

    From the link posted; "It’s unclear whether media coverage is driving the misconception that such violence is up."

    I like this statement from the link; "Some researchers have even linked dropping crime to reduced lead in gasoline, pointing out that lead can cause increased aggression and impulsive behavior in exposed children."

    Now that we have unleaded gas , we are all safe.

    The murder of this innocent Australian should be avenged to the absolute max. Having said that, BNO really raises a good point.

    Aussies used to be thought of as real he men. As rugged individualists. Now they are a bunch of urbanized, leftist wimps that give up their own freedoms as fast as their government can take them. It's fine with me if they boycott our country. Let them stay home and wallow in their own sh-t.

    Spent part of the day trying to find the post with the homicide statistics for other countries.

    When I did a search I found wiki which did not have what I was looking for and another list which showed the new US Homicide by gun rate at 67%. The CDC and the FBI stats did not show that at all.

    Someone back a while ago posted homicide rates world wide by country, if you are reading this can you post it again?
