Ashe Schow of the Washington Examiner with the throwdown, using statistics (imagine that, liberal media!):
And if you want to look at all murders, there were only only 248 homicides were committed with all varieties of rifle in 2014,accounting for 2.1 percent of all U.S. homicides, according to the FBI. Assuming even more ridiculously that every single one of those was committed with a “modern sporting rifle,” that means about 99.998 percent of these rifles were used for something other than killing people.
