Regressive left calls for gun control but not hammer control.
Annual FBI crime statistics prove that the number of murders committed with a hammer or a club dwarf the number of murders committed with a rifle as this Breitbart report revealed.
In 2005 – violent criminals committed 445 murders with a rifle while they used hammers and clubs 605 times. This trend continued in 2006 as hammers and clubs resulted in death 618 times while rifles accounted for 438 murders.
The left has yet to call for “hammer control.”
In 2011 – hammers and clubs accounted for 496 murders while 323 were committed with a rifle, a difference of 173.
In addition, twice as many people kill each other with their own hands than with guns.
Overwhelming evidence suggests that more guns directly correlate to less crime yet the regressive left continues to regurgitate MSNBC talking points ad nauseum while ignoring real threats to liberty. The Founding Fathers obviously held the Second Amendment in high regard which is why it was listed directly after the right to free speech in the Constitution.
Mass scale civil disarmament always precedes the institution of a tyrannical regime, until the general public can understand the true importance of maintaining and protecting the fundamental right to keep and bear arms – our civil liberties will continue to hang in the balance. The number one job of government is to protect freedom, it seems that a subset of the population believes that it should instead completely dissolve the rights that have been clearly outlined in the greatest document ever written.
