    Question How big is the problem?

    How could it be that the Virginia 2011 State Police reports that only one “assault rifle” death — ruled a homicide — was recorded statewide for that year (the only year to date that that data was collected)?

    Sounds as if some folk are way off base as to the scope of the alleged problem.

    Could some folk be championing a solution in search of a problem?

    Yup.

    I posted a couple things out there today myself. I'm beginning to think he and his merry band of idiots don't like me too much...which is an indicator that I'm on the right track.

    Across the nation we average about 400 murders by rifles per year. That is all rifles not just scary black ones. We average about 1800 murders every year by knives over 4 times as many as by rifles, all rifles not just "assualt rifles". The grab for "assualt rifles" is just the start. It has nothing to do with keeping Americans safe. There are more people murdered every year by being beat to death than there is by rifles, all rifles. I have not been able to find a stat on how many people are murdered every year by "assualt rifles", I bet it is somewhere around 150.

    I'm going to have to register my hammer or give up my job as a carpenter. Hammers are much more deadly than rifles.
