HEY, ANTI-GUN DIPSTICKS: FBI, ‘More People Murdered With Fire Than In Mass Shootings’

Dear Gun Grabbing Morons: If you truly want to stop violence then ban fire, fists, feet, hammers and baseball bats. Check it out…

According to FBI crime statistics and the bureau’s recent study on “active shooter” incidents (ACIs) in the US, far more people are murdered with fire than are killed in mass shootings.

Moreover, the number of people killed each year with “personal weapons,” such as “feet” and “fists,” nearly eclipses the number of people killed in mass shootings.

On September 24, the FBI released their study on ACIs showing 418 deaths in mass shootings–or “mass killings”–from 2000 to 2013. On paper, that works out to an average of 29.8 murders in mass shootings each year for those 14 years. But FBI crime stats for murder by other means show that the gap between those killed in mass shootings and those killed with more rudimentary weapons is staggering.

For example, the stats show 580 murders committed with fire from 2006 through2011 alone. That’s 162 more murders by fire in six years than the total number of murders via mass shooters for the 14-year period studied by the FBI.
