Time to ban hands and feet! Almost 2X as many Americans were killed by punches and kicks than by rifles in 2019, FBI says
· Oct 10, 2020 · NottheBee.com

The Uniform Crime Report (UCR) compiled by the FBI shows that in 2019 almost TWICE as many people were killed with hands and feet than with all rifles put together.

The FBI reports that 364 Americans were killed with rifles in 2019, while 600 were killed by bodily attacks like punches, kicks, and pushes.

You may only think of deer-hunting rifles when you think of "rifles" as a category, but by way of reminder, the AR-15 (which the media has turned into the boogeyman of all weapons) is the most popular firearm in America and is a RIFLE. Being a rifle, all deaths by way of AR-15s (or, as they're known in the media, aSsUaLt WeApOnS) are included in these statistics.

Guess it's time to ban hands and feet, ladies and gentlemen.

Oh, and guess how many Americans were killed with knives in 2019?


More than four times the number of Americans killed by all rifles, including AR-15s, combined.

We'd better ban all kitchen knives as well.
