    NBC just cited FBI stats for total murders using firearms in the US for 2011: 8,583

    Murders using handguns: 6,220

    Murders using rifles: 323

    Yeah, must be the "assault rifles" causing all that death and mayhem. Uh huh.

    Check out the entire list. Rifles are way down on the list. Knives and hands are much higher than rifles.

    A list you absolutely won't see published in our socialist media and certainly not but our racist administration is the breakdown of which demographic group in society commits what crimes? An interesting read if you are so inclined to do some research into the subject.

    Aprice, same here. And just like the video states, they can pin-point the exact neighborhoods of every large city and tell you where the overwhelming violent crime is. Do you think Pelosi has been to East L.A. in her life?

    If you ever get the chance to serve on a Grand Jury in the County where you live do it.

    It will become very clear who's causing the trouble.

    A high percentage of traffic stops find illegal firearms and drugs, and most of them are convicted felons.

    Above posts are dead on,(no pun intended).

    When a drunk driver kills someone w/his car they get to keep the car, but lose there gun rights.

    Leading cause of death in Afro-American males under age 40 is homicide. I stated right after the Newtown shootings, "There will be more people murdered in Chicago in the month of Jan. and nobody will say squat" The news reported 22 gun related homicides in Chicago so far this month. Rahn Emanual said nothing about this when he put forth his plan to curb gun sales. smoke & mirrors

    What was interesting a few years ago when I did a comparison was the percentage of "violent assaults involving a gun" to the "total of violent assaults". The percentage of "violent assault gun crimes" was just a small percentage. Most violent assault crimes were with anything handy including boards, hammers, fists, poisons, knives or even high heel shoes.
    The percentage of rifle gun assault crimes was very tiny compared to total violent assault crimes. Black guns were an even tinier percentage of total rifle assault crimes (less than 1% if I recall correctly).

    The total violent assault crime figure is the reason we should arm ourselves and pray we never are called upon to use it.
