Let’s take a brief minute to analyze some facts in regards to the use of firearms for crimes. From the FBI’s Expanded Homicide Data of Murder Victims by Weapon from 2010 to 2014, 1,530 deaths resulted from the use of a rifle in homicides from 2010 to 2014. However, 63,061 deaths resulted from the use of any type of weapon (Hands, poisons, explosives, narcotics, etc.) during this time period. Just to put things into perspective even further, blunt objects were used to commit 2,436 homicides over the span of those four years. You are more likely to be murdered by someone with a walking cane (Excuse me; ASSAULT cane.) than to be murdered by a rifle. So, why is the AR-15 receiving so much scrutiny by law when the facts show that the use of sporting rifles result in far less crime? You can be the judge of that.
