I went on the FBI Website to verify some statements that I have heard recently. The site is fairly easy to navigate and figure out.
Here are some 2011 stats. http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr...ables/table-20
Murder by Rifle 323
Murder by Handgun 6220
Murder by other Firearms 1680
Murder by Sharp Objects 1694
Murder by Hands, Feet 728
Murder by Other Weapons 1659
By other Weapon I am assuming they mean blunt objects hammers etc.
But by all means lets ban the evil AR's
