(NaturalNews) A new set of data from the FBI shows what tens of millions of Americans already know but that Washington and other elitist politicians refuse to acknowledge: That for the past several years more people have been killed with clubs and hammers than with rifles.

According to the data:

-- In 2005, there were 445 people killed with rifles, compared to 608 who were killed with a "blunt object" (club, hammer, etc.);

-- In 2006, the numbers were 438 and 618 respectively; in 2007, 453 and 647; in 2008, 380 versus 603; and in 2009, there were 348 deaths by rifle compared to 611 who were killed with a blunt object.

Rifles rarely used to kill in the U.S.

In addition, during the same periods, stabbing deaths far surpassed murders with blunt objects and rifles. By year, from 2006-2009: 1,920; 1,830; 1,817; 1,888; and 1,825.

During the same period, deaths caused by "personal weapons" - fists, hands, feet, etc. - were more than double those of rifle deaths: 905; 841; 869; 875; and 801.

Deaths caused by firearms far outnumbered those of all other weapons and methods combined, to be sure. But since the horrific murders of 20 Kindergartner children and six adults at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., last month, the gun banners have been hyper-focused on banning semi-automatic rifles with physical attributes similar to military weapons, known popularly as "assault weapons," since one style of this particular weapon - an AR-15 carbine manufactured by Bushmaster - was used by 20-year-old Adam Lanza in the attack.

Even though, per FBI figures, those types of weapons are rarely used to kill in the United States (any murder is horrible, but when there only a few hundred deaths per year caused by a particular weapon, out of a nation of more than 310 million, that one type of firearm can hardly be singled out, especially when other types of guns are used much more often).

"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," writes Awr Hawkins over at Breitbart.com. "The bottom line: A rifle ban is as illogical as it is unconstitutional. We face far greater danger from individuals armed with carpenters' tools and a caveman's stick."

And automobiles.

It's not about 'public safety,' it's about controlling the masses

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, though deaths from automobiles are at a 62-year-low, motor vehicles still kill more than 32,000 people a year - almost four times the number of deaths by firearms (8,583 in 2011, according to the FBI) - and yet President Obama, Sen. Dianne Feinstein and others are not proposing banning cars and trucks.

Or hands and feet.

Or clubs, hammers and baseball bats.

Or knives.

Or parents. According to researchers, some 250-300 children are murdered by their parents every year. "Historically, one out of 33 homicides is a parent killing a child younger than 18," Dr. Phillip Resnick, director of forensic psychiatry at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, told the Denver Post.

The point is this: The motive behind banning an object that a) kills fewer people than hands and feet; b) is used far less in crimes than other weapons; and c) has legitimate sporting and self-defense uses is purely political. It has nothing - nothing - to do with improving public safety; it has everything to do with control and power.

The American people currently have it. The elite want to take it from us and prevent us from taking it back. Period.
