In the midst of a challenging pandemic, many American cities have been under siege. Amid violence and riots, the rule of law has been abandoned by the same elected officials who swore to uphold it. Law-abiding citizens who unwittingly drove through protests have found themselves attacked or left to the mercy of a mob.
The promotion of civil unrest and the systematic destruction of neighborhoods and businesses have been permitted with limited consequences under the guise of the First Amendments protection of the right to protest. Yet when the case for protecting the Second Amendment couldnt be stronger to reasonable Americans, the left is yet again trying to weaken it.
And the new FBI report doesnt help the left narratives because more Americans have died by punches and kicks than by rifles in 2019.
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 theyre known in the media, assault weapons) are included in these statistics.
Guess its time to ban hands and feet, ladies and gentlemen. Oh, and guess how many Americans were killed with knives in 2019?
1,476. More than four times the number of Americans killed by all rifles, including AR-15s, combined.
Wed better ban all kitchen knives as well.
As Americans, our constitutional rights and individual liberties are not just a source of patriotic pride but the lifeblood of our democracy. The founders knew that the right of citizens to bear arms was essential to the preservation of democracy and liberty. The Second Amendment ensures that Americans can protect themselves, their families and their businesses, especially when the government is unwilling or unable to do so. And many Americans are indeed now choosing to exercise their Second Amendment rights; a national indicator for gun sales is at an all-time high.
They will limit the number of knuckles allowed per hand. (High capacity fists)
