    I for one feel a lot more secure when some unhinged kid can gun down a bunch of toddlers with shit he finds in his house.

    They're not "assault weapons"; just call them "Freedom Sparklers".

      This just in:  According to FBI annual crime statistics, "the number of murders committed annually with hammers and clubs far outnumbers the number of murders committed with a rifle."

        in your bitter clinging, you have linked to a piece by the poisonous far-right mendacity-merchants brietbart.com, and to a piece that itself says "the FBI makes is [sic] clear that some of the 'murder by rifle' numbers could be adjusted up slightly, when you take into account murders with non-categorized types of guns[.]"

          because I came to the story through Fark.  Regardless, it's safe to assume the FBI's statistics are accurate, despite the messenger.  And the fact that "some" of the numbers "could" be adjusted doesn't negate the point because a "slight" adjustment is statistically meaningless.

      That is the only possible conclusion anyone could make from my statement. Thank you for your fiery intellect.

      •  Your specious comment (0+ / 0-)

        deserves little but ridicule, and for that, I'm afraid my intellect is quite sufficient.

        I'll reserve contempt for the people who think someone else's dead kids are an acceptable price to pay for their antiquated notions of freedom.
