    I had no idea 'assault hammers' were a thing. I mean, I knew that a hammer used to be a medieval weapon but that just looks like a regular old claw hammer to me...

    dat bamboo handle...

    Why are we banning the inanimate objects? Hands are the #1 reason for death.. They pull the trigger, they smash the hammer, they throw the punches..

    Ban hands!!!

    This new law will force all members of society to have their hands cut off the body and replaced with robotic hands that are controlled by the government!

    Thats funny. Kind of. Not holding my gut.
    Seems rifle makers have some sort of humour. But will they combat the bill with humour?

    An accident is something that you did not mean to do at all. A mistake is something that you regret doing.

    To be fair, 'firearms, type not stated' almost certainly includes quite a few rifle deaths, considering how common rifles are in rural areas.

    6,452 homicides by handguns in 2009 versus 611 by hammers and blunt objects. What is this thread about again? *confused*

    Here's a more recent one. http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr...e-data-table-8

    Hammer crime is way down. You other charts cant deny.. When those numbers roll low and the murders start to slow you get SHOT! By a gun, because gun murders are still obscenely high lol.

    I'm not sure what "not stated" exactly entails. If you are correct then it could also include handguns, rifles, shotguns, other guns etc.

    The point isn't that HAND GUNS are getting a ban(hammer HA) it's that Assault Rifles are. When you look at the "Rifle" list on those charts you see they are anywhere from 1/3rd to 1/2 of what hammer murders are.

    Edit - Even if you add "Other guns" to "Rifles" you get less than hammers.

    It's hammers vs. rifles not guns. Because they don't want to ban handguns just assault rifles because so many people are shot with rifles every year.
