    Re: Another Right Wing LIE. Hammers and bats (and guitars, and rocks) do not kill more people than guns.

    In response to WhatDoYouWantNow's comment:

    Georgia congressman Paul Broun claimed after Tuesday’s State of the Union address that “There are more people killed with baseball bats and hammers than are killed with guns.” Explainer readers may remember Broun as the congressman who believes the Earth is 9,000 years old. What about his hammer and baseball bat claim?

    He’s wrong again, but he’s getting warmer. According to FBI data, 8,583 people were murdered with firearms in 2011. Only 496 people were killed by blunt objects, a category that includes not just hammers and baseball bats but crowbars, rocks, paving stones, statuettes, and electric guitars. Broun was off by a factor of at least 17 this time, a significant improvement on his estimate of the age of the Earth. The blue planet is 4.54 billion years old, or more than 500,000 times older than Broun believes it to be.

    Guns are, undeniably, the American murderer’s weapon of choice. The number of people murdered with firearms in 2011 was more than twice the number murdered by every other means combined, including fists, swords, poison, explosives, arson, and strangulation.

    So why do they keep saying it?

     

     

    Taken in too easily by Fox?

    Idiots?

    Unrepentant liars?

    Anything goes when its anonymous?

    You decide.

     

     

     

    Oh, and btw, the accidental blunt instrument death rate is also lower....in case that was your next move:

     

    "Those statistics are for intentional killings only. What about accidental deaths? According to data from the CDC, 606 people were killed in gun accidents in 2010. The number of people accidentally killed by any piece of sporting equipment was 18. Four people were killed by nonpowered hand tools such as hammers."

     



    I believe the Congressmen was talking about cumulative deaths over teh past 9000 years.

    But on another note just being at home in results in over 20,000 deaths per year.  Time to out law ladders and the act of running with scissors.

    Oct. 2, 2002 -- Home may be a place to escape the dangers of the outside world, but a new report shows dangers abound on the home front as well -- causing as many as 20,000 deaths, 7 million disabling injuries, and 20 million hospital trips in the U.S. each year.

    Despite those staggering statistics, more than half of American adults surveyed say they can't think of anything they should or would do in the coming year to make their homes safer or to prevent unintentional injuries.

    "Falls are by far the major problem, followed by poisonings," says Carol Runyan, PhD, MPH, director of the injury prevention research center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

    Single level falls are the number one cause of work place injuries. May be we should ban walking at work?

    I think the mistake you are making is that the original statistic was so-called assault rifles, not all firearms.

    From your data ... murder rate, those killed by firearms was less year over year. Matter of fact overall crimes including murders been going down since 2001

    Did gun ownership go down?  Nope, gun ownership spike the last 2 years and yet murder rate has gone down .... show me the relationship of guns and murder rate!!!

    You can't ... Moonbats LIES

    You are right.  The solution is more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens, not less.

    The moonbats do not get this.  Their solution is dependence on government, even though government cannot protectus in many cases.

    GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT...

    FBI statistics show that more people are murdered each year in the US with hammers, bats etc than RIFLES...which includes "assault rifles"

    handguns are another story.

    its not guns its people......states with better people have no gun crime problem...
