FBI: Nearly Three Times More People Stabbed to Death Than Killed With Rifles, Shotguns Combined
The FBI’s 2015 Uniform Crime Report (UCR) shows nearly three times more people were stabbed or hacked to death than were killed with rifles and shotguns combined.
Breitbart News previously reported this UCR shows nearly twice as many people were beaten to death with “hands, fists, feet, etc.” in 2015 than were killed with rifles of any kind.
According to the FBI, the number of people killed with rifles and shotguns in 2015 totals approximately 548. Nearly three times that many, approximately 1,573, were stabbed or hacked to death.
These facts are especially interesting when you consider that the Democrats emerged from the Sandy Hook Elementary attack with a plan to ban numerous rifles, politically categorized “assault weapons,” and certain shotguns as well. But these efforts are misplaced, at best, if the FBI’s numbers are to be trusted.
