FBI: Over 5 Times More Killed with Knives than Rifles
FBI crime stats for 2018 show over five times as many people were killed with knives and/or other cutting instruments than were killed with rifles.

The FBI data shows a total 1,515 deaths by knives and/or other cutting instruments vs. 297 deaths by rifle in 2018.

I want to be the first to call for a ban and buy back of assault knives or any knives longer than three inches! We also need to institute background checks as well! If we can save one child it will be worth it!

Well wait a minute, no one is talking about taking grandpa’s fillet knife, just the scary ones now obviously if his fillet knife was a leech lake then it has that high capacity back edge which was determined to convert it to a regulated automatic weapon and it must be turned in and destroyed.
