A little quick math tells us that 3.76% of firearm deaths, and 2.55% of all homicides, were known to have been committed by rifles.

(The number, of course, must be more, because some of those 'indeterminate type's are bound to have been rifles also, but these are just the known rifle homicides.)

(Also note that, for whatever reason, the FBI doesn't include information from Alabama or Florida.)

The more you know!
This doesn't conflict with what petegz28 said. I mean, he was about dead on there.
