I've found that whilst any troll, fool or dickhead can provoke a shitstorm, there is no better way to send the red-thumbs flying...
...Than to politely disagree with someone.

Alright, look
A) There are no statistics about car murders because
B) It's incredibly difficult to prove that any death by car is a murder and not an accident
C) Murder rates by car are speculated to be a negligible portion of murders, given that
D) It is incredibly difficult to avoid witnesses due to the amount of noise and large movements such a murder would make, and
E) Cars are very easy to track

Point is, we CAN'T factor it. There are no numbers.
And anyway, even if we COULD factor car murders, what gives them any relation to knives and blunt objects?

They (shoddily) define it to try to include as many semi auto rifles as they, but really there isn't a functional distinction between them and a non "assault weapon."

Not to mention it doesn't really mean a lot either. This article is driving a comparison between places like the UK, where guns are banned but knives aren't. It's no surprise that knife-related deaths go up when alternative forms of killing people are readily unavailable.

To be fair. The biggest point that many vocal anti-gun people cite is rifles and shotguns being big killers. They tend to bring a bigger stank in terms of ignorant fear and legislation.

Maybe it's only mentioning rifles and shotguns because rifles and shotguns are the shit being made illegal and taken away.

Yes, that's the article's agenda. I'm just pointing out that OP is drawing incorrect conclusions from the article.

The point being more that AWBs are ultimately useless.

I should clarify that the article is correct, knives do kill more people than shotguns and rifles combined, but OP is drawing the conclusion that knives kill more people than guns in general do, which is incorrect.
