Yep 328 homicides with a rifle, What kind I don't know. Could be about half were done with so called "assault rifles" Could be 1/3 or fewer.
The purposeful misleading information just kills me. It is perpatrated by a liberal media and govt. who would prefer people owned nothing more than a sling shot. People need to question why that is.
