    I propose a ban on hammers and clubs (no more nights out clubbing ladies)

    Think about it: In 2005, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 445, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 605. In 2006, the number of murders committed with a rifle was 438, while the number of murders committed with hammers and clubs was 618.
    And so the list goes, with the actual numbers changing somewhat from year to year, yet the fact that more people are killed with blunt objects each year remains constant.
    For example, in 2011, there was 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs.
    While the FBI makes is clear that some of the "murder by rifle" numbers could be adjusted up slightly, when you take into account murders with non-categorized types of guns, it does not change the fact that their annual reports consistently show more lives are taken each year with these blunt objects than are taken with Feinstein's dreaded rifle.

    Somebody call for evil judge pig?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    The year the first "assault weapon" ban was enacted, more people in Chicago were murdered with baseball bats than the listed assault weapons. Baseball bats must be banned!

    Go figger!

    Yes, but it was Chicago. Those murder victims are still voting. It was probably just an ACORN registration drive that got out of hand.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
