FBI: Common Carpenter’s Tool Kills More People Than All Rifles

Assaults and murders using a firearm are horrible things. I think that we can all agree on that. No sane rational person wants to see someone else intentionally hurt or killed (unless it was necessary for self-defense). And, because we all agree that having fewer assaults and murders using a firearm is a good thing, anti-gunners like to spout statistics about these incidents.

But have you ever wondered why anti-gunners never give you context around those statistics, meaning they never give you those statistics compared to other statistics? It’s because, when you have that context, gun violence becomes much less of a big deal because you realize that there are other areas where the potential to save lives is so much greater.

So, to give you some perspective, AWR Hawkins has some information for us:

Crime statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) show that more people were killed with hammers and clubs than with rifles of every kind in 2017.

According to the Uniform Crime Report, 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed were rifles.

The FBI report also reveals that 692 people were killed with “personal weapons” like “hands, fists, feet, etc..” and that is higher than the number of people killed with rifles and shotguns combined.

On May 21, 2014, Breitbart News reported FBI numbers showing that more people were killed with hammers and clubs than rifles in 2011. More people were killed with fists and feet than with rifles and shotguns combined in 2012.

On June 16, 2016, Breitbart News reported FBI numbers showing more than twice as many people were beaten to death with fists and feet in 2014 than were shot to death with rifles of every kind.

Think about those statistics. There is a greater opportunity to save lives with doing something about hammers and clubs (and hands and feet, for that matter) because more people are killed with them. If anti-gun laws were really about saving lives, then they would be looking to reduce hammer and club injuries and deaths instead of guns.

But they aren’t doing that, are they?

When you see it in perspective, it becomes clear that gun control isn’t really about saving lives. No, it’s about making us defenseless. And that is completely unacceptable.

  1. The lives of a few innocent citizens mean nothing to these radicals. Their goal is to confiscate every privately owned firearm in the country. No tyrant has ever taken over a country where the Citzens were armed!

    • Lieutenant Colonel James Gordon “Bo” Gritz predicted our government was going to do this. He said further, that after that, they would eventually come for your children, too.The man knew what our government was trying to do way back then, (1992, when he ran for president on the Populist Party.) “God, Guns, and Gritz” washis slogan.Disarm the people, keep them ignorant, and feed them misinformation, and you can control the masses. I am glad to see your eyes are open to what is going on.

  2. I don’t have a firearm.
    I own an arsenal.
    Come to take it away, bring a platoon, at least.
    If I have a days warning, don’t come unless you have a death wish.
    And I am not alone, by any means……..

  3. These democrat/communists are trying to operate a slow motion “Bolshevik revolution” on American soil. They want no resistance to their conquest. They are the worst kind of tyrants on earth. Resist in any way possible. Never relinquish any firearms to this type of tyrannical government!

  4. stupid/carpenters are good hard working low-paid common people,when the f.b.i. choose carpenters (not people and drug smugglers our government is really screwed up.)i cannot believe that out of so—many armed police/agents/secret service/illegal arms/drug runners…you have the nerve to pick on the hard working backbone of america(also paying your salaries)SHAME ON YOU LOSERS.

    • Good day Rich,
      After reading your comment, I think you might be a bit unclear what the article said. It did not say that Carpenters were commuting the murders. It did say that tools of the trade were used to murder people. I don’t believe there were any implications that the Carpenters were at fault. I have been in Construction for almost 50 years. I am a contractor who started out digging footings, cleaning up and such.
      The point that was being made is, people use the tools of our trade to commit murder. The point also is pointing out that there are many things used to kill people and guns are not at the top of the list and far from it. Drugs is one of the causes of death in America. So if all these groups that want to ABOLISH THE SECOND AMENDMENT, TAKE EVERY GUN AWAY FROM THE CITIZENS so we can reduce the number of killings, start by putting your efforts into abolishing drugs, and other cause that far surpass the numbers over guns. The reason is “THEY WANT CONTROL OF THE PEOPLE”. They want control by taking away anything that would prevent them from their agendas.
      In part:
      1) Take Control of the people.
      2) Take over and change the Government that has had the Constitution as our Primary Governing Laws.
      3) Take over our Schools so they can teach our children their beliefs. Which are contrary to the Values This Country Was Gounded in at it’s conception.
      4) Remove Christianity from everything. It was Christian Values that the Constution was built around.
      5) They want to take out the foundational blocks that has made this Country what it is supposed to be. (You as a Carpenter, knows the foundation is what supports the integrity of the entire structure).
      Just to name a few things on their agenda list.
      Rich, please do yourself a favor and go back and read the article
      from this approach. Again, I believe there was no intent to implicate the people that are working in the honorable position of Construction Workers.

      TO THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE TRYING TO DESTROY THIS COUNTRY AND TAKE AWAY OUR FREEDOM AND RIGHTS AND CHANGE OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHTS, I have two things to say to you.
      1) LOVE THIS COUNTRY OR LEAVE IT!
      2) YOU HAVE STARTED AND ARE NOW ENGAGED IN A BATTLE THAT IS BIGGER THAN ANYTHiNG YOU COULD HAVE IMAGINED.

      TO ALL OF YOU TRUE HEARTED, AMERICA LOVING PEOPLE, STAND UP, THIS IS THE MOST SUBVERSIVE WAR WE HAVE EVER FACED IN THE HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY. WE ARE FACING
      SIMULAR TACTICS USED BY DICTATORS AS THEY STARTED THEIR TAKE OVER.

    • rich bartels You need to read the article again because it says the tool used to kill more people is hammers and clubs than guns. They didn’t say carpenters.

  5. And they want us defenseless so that they can take total control over us, just like in Nazi Germany and fascist Italy and communist Russia, etc., so they can totally enslave us just like those mentioned did. Just because we won WWII, don’t think that what was going on in those countries then can’t happen here now. It can.

    • The Anti-fa is based on Hitler’s Brownshirts, and they use the same EXACT methods the National Socialists Workers Party (Nazis) used. The only difference is their leader is George Soros. And, the Democratic Party supports and defends these tactics wanting the destruction of America as a Nation. Globalists are the new Nazis! Walk tall, my friends. Vote NOW.

  6. I have been stating many alternate weapons for killing a person for a very long time.Let’s not forget rocks and tree limbs. How many of those exist in the US? Let’s not forget that David killed a Goliath with a sling and a rock. I have a long sling and I know what it can do. No, I have never killed a giant with it. Or anything else, either. Neither have my several guns.

  7. Gun Control isn’t about guns, it’s about control. Just like governments have always been about control for the last 6,000 + years. That never changes.

  8. All of you need to support President Trump. He is currently in the process of defeating the democrats and evil factions. When he gets done with them they will be completely gutted.

  9. You can make a difference with this upcoming vote. Vote for America. It is the only way to avoid a
    bloody civil war. Thought we had avoided the horror of one. The Democrats/Socialist just can’t
    accept the thought that a large part of America does not agree with their ideas. They can’t stand
    it they are just unable to accept that fact. Hillary said they need to regain their power hold using
    ANY means necessary. With that kind of propaganda being spoon fed to the ignorant followers we
    need to keep our powder dry and eyes open. It is still possible that the lid could blow off this
    pressure cooker.
    I pray to God that the misguided who do not understand our Constitution somehow have their
    eyes open before it all boils over.

  10. To begin with, I am a strong gun advocate. One question comes to mind, why specifically why no mention of hand guns ( my preference )? Seems like only part of the story when you write an article that could and should be used in verbal battle. would like to know statistics on hand guns. without that included I cannot see where this could be of use, it could get one blindsided by an anti-gunner be better prepped.

  11. The Second Amendment is still in effect. “The Right of The People to Keep and Bear Arms Shall Not Be Infringed” Any politician that opposes the Second Amendment is unfit to serve. I gave up a piece of of my life and some body parts for America. Any politician that opposes the Second Amendment is a traitor!
