Common misconception. The stat that more people are killed by knives than rifles is in fact true but typically turns into all guns by the gun lovers. Sorry...I know the gun grabbers all want this to be the law of the land, but I don't believe they understand what it would open up for all companies. Can QuikTrip be sued if somebody fills a 5 gallon gas can and commits arson? Can Stanley be sued if somebody buys a hammer at Home Depot and beats his wife to death with it? If I had to guess, I'd bet more people are injured/killed with kitchen knives than any other kind. Watch out Chicago Cutlery, Henkels, Wusthoof, Cutco, etc.

FBI stats are the most thorough and accurate too. Largest and most up-kept database that I know of for stuff like that.I've carried around updated FBI statistics for years since I was confronted by a professor who shit the bed when my project presentation proved her argument defunct.
