    The thing that’s only purpose is to kill people. The thing that can be used to murder 24 innocent children within a few minutes. The thing that is designed to penetrate the bullet-proof vests of policemen. The thing on the left.

    -

    One more thing, Mr. Gorrell: if you go with the Louie Gomert hammer-thing you should have at least mentioned his name, it adds clarity to those of us who know his outlandish statements from the past…

    How about the one that’s designed specifically to kill people? Or how about this: ever hear of a mass hammering?

    Is that all hammers or just ball peen hammers? Is that all guns or just that model of assault rifles. There have to be more types of guns than hammers. Although, technically, more things can be used as hammers, so should the argument be extended to any objects used to beat someone to death?

    The deceptive numbers notwithstanding, a hammer has other uses than murder.

    It only took about 5 clicks to get the data from FBI.gov.

    323 is the number for all “Rifles”, not just SLRs (Scary Looking Rifles) and certainly not for just AR pattern rifles.

    Another interesting number is for “Hands, fists, feet, etc”: 728.

    We can discuss all day all sorts of different objects we can use to kill other people. The bottom line is guns particularly assault weapons have one sole purpose. They are designed to kill as many people as possible in a short period of time. I could see the purpose for high capacity guns in the battlefield but not in the hands of ordinary citizens.

    I guess you talk about technical solutions. Well, I initially thought so myself (for example RFID readers in the trigger-guard, you have to wear the right ring to fire the gun). But thinking a bit more about it I changed my mind. I’m an IT-specialist and have worked long years in computer security. It is not possible to solve this as long as an owner has unlimited access-time to his device (gun). Anything can be hacked, and the more complexity you build into the system the easier it gets. Believe you me, I’ve seen my share of “security by obscurity” and it never, ever worked…

    The hammer is held in one hand,it is a hand tool. The rifle is a two-handed tool. The one handed pistol, or hand gun, was responsible for over 11,000 homicides in 2011, care to compare to the number of Jack Hammers (sorta’ automatics?).

    I’d also like to know how many hammer swingers and how many trigger pullers to put additional perspective on this.

    In 2011 – the latest year for which detailed statistics are available – there were 12,664 murders in the US. Of those, 8,583 were caused by firearms.

    Yep, you guys as so great. All up in arms (pun intended) over this weapon killed 300 that weapon killed 700, the other one 11K and yet not one of you, not a single tear shed not a thought for the 350 thousand killed every year ( and 2012 was the best year yet and new high) by ABORTION.

    Talk about killing children. Hypocrites.

    100% of people who drink water dies afterwards – ban water. 12 out of 10 statistics are usually made up.

    As others have said the hammer is a tool, and if people really want to kill it doesn´t matter if anything is nearby they will and only difference is how hard it will be. Guns in the house WILL make it easier to kill, and a rifle makes it easier to kill alot at a time.

    Yes! More people get hammered from Alcoholic Beverages than hammers (all types included).
