On January 3, 2013, Breitbart News reported on the newest FBI crime statistics then available (2011) showing that more people are killed with hammers and clubs each year than are killed with rifles.

With newer crime statistics now out for 2012, Breitbart News can report that more people are killed each year with fists and hammers than are killed with rifles or shotguns.

Doesn't the FBI know they're supposed to adjust the numbers so as to support the liberal agenda? When the dictator learns of this someone will be fired over this most egregious oversight...

And more people, for the last 100 years at least, have been killed by a government’s action of some kind than any other non-natural death.

Powerful governments are dangerous.

Forget the Fists & Hammers.

How many people are killed by the government’s “Hammer & Sickle”, i.e. Socialist or Marxist-Leninist, policies

I have an assault claw hammer in my tool box. Along with a high-capacity (12-lb) sledgehammer with a composite handle.

True.

Evil mean and women who sneak in, steal, usurp, cheat to misuse gov’t tools are the most dangerous.

Good thing there aren’t any current DNC operatives who do that....oh.....wait....

Hammers? Yeah, I have several assault hammers. Mean looking they are. Hell, sometimes when I’m feeling saucy, I’ll OPEN CARRY a hammer or two.

:) Yeah, there ya go. Except my hammers are much meaner looking. It’s super easy to imagine my hammers doing really life-taking stuff to people. Utter destruction oozes from them.

Don’t worry. When the COMMUNIST takeover of America begins, they will be getting around to try banning those too.

What an interesting source of real data!

Table 20 shows that murders by firearms by State has California (with some of the most bizarre & extreme gun control laws in the USA) as having fully the most murders (1879) of any state. California again shines as an example in leading in firearms related robberies in Table 21, as it also does in firearm related aggravated assaults. So much for gun control laws in the great state of California.

Table 6 Murders by Metropolitan Area (listing those in excess of 10 murders per 100,000 people) also shows where the real murders are taking place in this country. We don't have a firearms murder problem we have a Big metropolitan area drug/gang/poverty crime problem that results in murders.

Atlantic City
Baton Rouge
Beckley WV
Detroit-Warren, MI
Flint MI
Goldsboro NC
Hilton Head Island-Bluffton-Beaufort, SC
Jackson MS
Macon GA
Memphis TN
Mobile AL
Montgomery, AL
New Orleans, LA
Philadelphia, PA
Pine Bluff AR
Saginaw MI
Salinas CA
Stockton-Lodi, CA
Sumter SC
Arecibo, Puerto Rico
Guayama Puerto Rico
Mayaguez, Puerto Rico
Ponce, Puerto Rico
San Juan-Carolina-Caguas, Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is just off the chart as far as dangerous.

"FBI NOT being politically correct"

I'm sure that the FBI stats include the number gun deaths with a handgun, but it makes everyone feel better to talk only about long guns.

Back pocket GOVT data to counter all the out of state anti gun nazis when the NV legislature takes up the anti gun push next session. Carson City ain’t that far from my house that I can’t make myself a pain in their asses. Plus I kinda know a couple of the legislators that’ll stand up for our rights. I’ve been gathering info since the last session since I now know what they’re gonna bring in.

Must be why the SWAT team pummeled the guy with a hammer a few days ago.

Mac daddy will issue an executive order that all fists must be cut off, except those who he likes and those who give him money.

That was one weird movie. I only saw it once and that was enough.

Like you, I saw the movie only once - the album is far better.

There’s a youtube of David Gilmour & Richard Wright doing “Comfortably Numb” live in a NYC studio. Really nice version.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_cPxKq-gMDo

Little factoids....

The artist - Gerald Scarfe - who did the cover and movie graphics is married to Jane Asher, ex-girlfriend of Paul McCartney.

The Beatles first engineer (up to Rubber Soul), Norman Smith, went on to produce Pink Floyd’s early albums.

Waaay too much coffee already...
