IMO we also err by allowing the media to focus on "gun violence." We get a different picture when we look at the figures from the FBI for all murders. Less than half are committed with handguns, only 2% with any type of rifle, and that compares to 5% with hands and feet, and 13% with knives and other edged weapons.

One out of three murders is committed without a firearm of any type. There is a distortion that occurs when only firearms are considered.
