Assault rifle deaths 332 in 2012
Hand gun deaths average- 11,000 a year.
The statement about assault weapon bans by the Democrats is just ignorant. The fact is that most people who are killed with weapons are killed with hand guns, not assault type weapons.
Banning assault weapons, including ones used in sporting events and hunting, would do very little to curb weapons violence. Also, more people are killed in auto accidents than by weapons, each year in America.
suicide is the number one cause of gun related deaths in America.
