And hands/feet kill more than rifles and shotguns combined (also in 2016 knives killed five times as many as rifles):
Crime statistics from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) show that more people were killed with hammers and clubs than with rifles of every kind in 2017.
According to the Uniform Crime Report, 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed were rifles.
The FBI report also reveals that 692 people were killed with “personal weapons” like “hands, fists, feet, etc..” and that is higher than the number of people killed with rifles and shotguns combined.
On June 16, 2016, Breitbart News reported FBI numbers showing more than twice as many people were beaten to death with fists and feet in 2014 than were shot to death with rifles of every kind.
