I have a hammer. It scares the crap outa me, and Domino. I've had many more injuries with that damn hammer than I've ever had with any of my firearms. And it's not even an assault hammer...

What really needs to be banned -- current owners need to have theirs immediately confiscated -- are the opaque, inert brains of holier than thou collectivists....

In fact, according to the same FBI stats, in 2010 there were 731 murders committed with rifles and shotguns, and 745 murders committed with "hands, fist & feet".

More people are beaten to death with bare hands than are killed by rifle fire. More than double. One stat the statist MSM will never report.

Print this data. Wrap it around a hammer. Then put it through your local Gun-Gestapo supporter's window?

With a good purging of congress, that statistic can change. Maybe that's what they are so worried about.

Phoenix Dad with gun stops intruder
January 3, 2013
A quote worth contemplating

As his daughters, ages 4 and 7 slept, a Phoenix father stopped a home invasion suspect trying to break through their bedroom window just before 2:00 am. Wednesday. The father shot the man three times, fatally wounding him.

The attempted forced entry occurred in the area of 28th Avenue and Acoma, where the man was previously observed trying to break into cars.

The suspect, who has not been identified, is described as a 35-year-old white male, who was acting irrationally, and appeared to pull a weapon from his pants.

Police say the homeowner, who was simply trying to protect his family, was not arrested.

“The only thing that will stop a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun.”

– Wayne LaPierre, National Rifle Association Executive Vice President.
