The Democrats in Congress have been ramping up recent gun control arguments based on claims that gun violence is the greatest danger domestically.
But a new FBI sheds new light on their mirage.
“FBI data released Monday in the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) show over three and a half times as many people were stabbed to death in 2020 than were killed with all kinds of rifles combined,” reports Breitbart News.
Per the report “454 people were shot and killed with rifles in 2020 while 1,732 were stabbed or hacked to death with knives or cutting instruments.”
The data is even more convincing when you look at the details:
The broad categorization of “rifles” includes a broad swath of firearms, from bolt action rifles to lever action, pump action, breech action, and beyond. It also includes semiautomatic rifles that take a detachable magazine, which the left often classifies as “assault weapons.” Yet three and a half times more people were stabbed to death in 2020 than were killed with all of these various rifle types combined.
