Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee recently tweeted the following recently:
Is this a worldwide figure or just the US. And how in the world does she get this number. My feeling is she just makes it up. Because Liberals always resort to lying and fictional statistics.
According to FBI crime statistics,
Blunt objects (hammers and clubs), knives, and personal weapons (hands, fists, and feet) “cause” far more murders than all types of rifles combined:
So in 2010, only 355 people were murdered in the US with a rifle. That’s every type of rifle combined. So how is Shelia Jackson Lee coming up with the figure of 250,000. Easy, she is making it up.
