The numbers, brought to you by Breitbart, are real and from the FBI. I want to say I'm surprised, but I'm not...

Does a hammer with a composite handle get classes as an assault hammer?

I’ve used a belt fed semi auto nail gun with a pistol grip.

Don't forget swimming pools! A child who lives in a house that has guns and a swimming pool is much more likely to drown in that pool than to be killed by one of those guns.

Very well. It's time for hammer control.
Every hammer gets a serial number.
No hammer can be bought without BATF&H approval.
There will be a 5 day waiting period on hammer purchases, to avoid heat-of-the-moment hammer killings.
No one may sell a hammer without having a BATF&H license.
Semi-automatic hammers are prohibited.
Hammers than can strike more than 10 nails without reloading the nail pouch are prohibited.
And that's just a start. We must do something about hammer violence!

If I blogged I would write a response to that “comedian”who said rifle owners are making up for this lack of “manhood”. My response would be related to hammer size and manhood. If you own a sledgehammer you are trying to make up for something. Who needs all the different various hammers? Why do you need automatic hammers, or nail guns with extended “clips” of more than 10 nails?

We had the deaths of two fireman here in Webster on the morning of December 24th 2012. The killer was a man who had killed his 92 year old grandmother with a hammer in 1980....bashing her head 13 times.

He was released after 17 years and lived here for 15 years with no KNOWN incident....until Dec. 24th.

He should have NEVER been released.

“Does a hammer with a composite handle get classes as an assault hammer?”

Does a sledgehammer get classified as a “heavy weapon” by Bill O’Reilly?

The FBI nailed it.

Violence and deaths associated with illegal drugs exceed firearm related deaths by huge margins. But that won't be adressed by the anti-self defense crowd. Be sure to use that term....because it really is about taking away your personal right to self-defense and placing you and your family and your property's protection under the full responsibility of the government.

After posting my original comment, I realized that the hammers in my collection consist of a 16” claw hammer with a fiberglass handle and a 40oz dead-blow hammer which is all plastic. Holy crap, I own assault tools!

I believe that qualifies as a weapon of mass construction.

I can shoot over 100 spikes from my Bostitch framing gun (assault...?) without having to reload...

I'll give up my hammer - when they pry it from my cold dead hand.

Actually . . . I hardly ever use it anymore in this Obama economy for home-builders.

Sigh.

Uh-oh. I have a plastic handled claw hammer, several wooden handled ones, several sledge hammers, ball-peen hammers plus some specialty hammers (tack, Warrington hammer, dead blow). It’s a hammer cache! Cut nails, roofing nails, headless brads, wire nails in several different sizes, hand-forged ‘rose-head’ nails, and even a leather ‘holster’. Great googly moogly, who needs so many hammers and nails?

I hope my vintage hammers get grandfathered in. I have one from the 1880s and another from even earlier, circa 1850. All kept, unlocked, within easy reach of any passing child (though I have no children).

I lived in Massachusetts from 1987 to 1989. At that time you had to have a state pistol permit to rent, own or use a nail gun.

I’m special. My hammer went through the side of one of those wall mart metal storage sheds.

It’s ‘armor piercing’ ;)

I had an enormous collection of assault hammers, semi-auto hammers, sledge hammers, concealable pocket hammers, ak hammers etc until I lost them all in a boating accident...

2 of the 3 were bought through a friend....whom he named in his 3 page letter...and is now in jail.....

They're not telling us much about the 38.

Using the term "straw" is a lot of cr**....whatever...

My son has a plastic hammer with a hollow striking head.

Will that be illegal as well?

I have a tack hammer. It’s very light. Perfect for a slight woman like myself. Reminds me of my 1960’s high heels.

More kids are killed in school bus related accidents...traffic accidents, and/or hit by a car while getting on/off a school bus, then were killed in school by crazed gunmen. Obvious solution is to thus ban school buses. But wait..how will kids get to school?

They can either walk, ride bikes, or have their parents drive them..in car pools. Want to bet how many MORE are killed in traffic accidents?
