|Knives or cutting instruments||1,920||1,830||1,817||1,888||1,825|

So these are the statistics from the FBI annual crime statistics.
Curious, the problem with handguns seems to be improving. So is it with Rifles, Shotguns and other guns. Knives are quite high as well but also reducing slightly. Blunt objects are going up. Strangulation is going up.
Hmmm, overall, looks like the number of deaths is coming down and US society is improving…as far as crime is concerned
then again, facetiously, if we are talking about banning, then handguns are the biggest problem, why are we talking assault weapons and high capacity magazines when the biggest source relates to handguns?
and while we are at it, ban knives, blunt objects and personal weapons..
we do need to make it more tougher for nutters to have guns..
