According to the media and entertainment world and most of the socialist clowns running for President in the Democrat primary, the gun violence problem in America is mostly a problem with white men. In order to address gun violence we need to take guns away from white men who haven't actually committed a crime and ban "assault weapons" that are rarely used in shootings. But the FBI reports that more people were killed with blunt objects in 2017 than by all rifles (which would include regular bolt action, lever action and single shot rifles)....
FBI: More People Killed by Hammers, Clubs than with Rifles of Any Kind
Breitbart News reported the most recent numbers–those for 2017–on September 26, 2018. Those figures showed that 467 people were killed with “blunt objects (hammers, clubs, etc.),” while 403 were killed with rifles.
Obviously what America needs is common sense bi-partisan hammer control legislation. Do it for the children!
The real story of gun violence in America is not what you are being told. There is a reason we are still talking about El Paso and "white supremacy" and the need for gun control but the story of the police getting shot in Philadelphia is disappearing down the memory hole. It is simple psychological manipulation designed to soften up white Americans to support being disarmed while they are simultaneously being systematically replaced.
Some random white kid in an El Paso Wal-Mart with an AK is not the face of gun violence in America. This is the face of gun violence in America:

In North Philly standoff, alleged cop shooter Maurice Hill has a long criminal history
In his storied criminal career as an adult (it is safe to assume he didn't start committing crimes when he turned 18), Mr. Hill has been arrested around a dozen times in 18 years. He has been busted for evading police on an unlicensed scooter (seriously) as well as drug dealing, assault and a slew of gun charges, which seems odd since as a felon he isn't allowed by law to own a gun. It is almost as if people who are felons are notable for a rather strenuous disregard for the law. I am sure a new gun control law will be just the thing to dissuade him from a life of violent crime.
Mr. Hill is a 36 year old black man who has spent his entire adult life, and probably most of his teen years as well, either committing crimes or being incarcerated for committing crimes. He is also the epitome of criminals who use guns in America. You hear about white kids shooting up Wal-Mart stores because it is a) politically useful and b) reasonably rare. You don't hear about blacks shooting people because it is a) politically inconvenient and b) so common place that it becomes background noise. Thanks again to Colin Flaherty for doing the work and making the connections the media refuses to:
Gun violence in America is largely an issue in the non-white community. Blacks and to a lesser extend Hispanics commit violence far out of proportion to their share of the population. Whites are deeply underrepresented in violent crime, especially murder. The face of gun violence in America is a black man who likely is a career criminal and probably shot another black man and an assortment of bystanders, not using an "assault rifle" he purchased at a gun show but instead using an illegally obtained handgun.
Don't let the media lie and manipulate you into giving up your firearms.
