So, I'm wondering how the CSGV will spin this?*

The FBI has released their 2007-2011 “Murder Victims by Weapon” report. The results are contradictory to anti-gun industry claims that relaxing the ban on assault weapons will cause more crime.

The report indicates you are more likely to be killed by hands or feet than by a rifle or shotgun.

Since 2007 there has been a 16.2% decline in murders committed with personal weapons which are defined as “hands, fists, feet etc.” The number of murders of this type in 2011 totaled 728.

While gun ownership has dramatically increased since 2007, murders for both the shotgun and rifle categories have seen declines faster than the rate of personal weapons related crime.

*(Yes, I know: "It doesn't say anything about handguns! Handguns are EVIL!!" Etc.)

CSGV (Communist Supporters of (Thugs Commiting)Gun Violence) will stick to the handguns as evil theme, after all they are the very weapons that make the old, weak, frail and female strong against their constituents.
