Chip Roy recently raised some eyebrows by claiming that more people are killed by hands and knives than by rifles.
After all of the rhetoric pushed by liberals, that couldn’t possibly be true.
Luckily, we have fact-checkers for that sort of thing.
It turns out that Chip Roy is ABSOLUTELY telling the truth.
The FBI themselves put out the numbers that showed that in 2020, more people were killed with fists and feet than were killed with rifles.
In that year, 454 people were killed with rifles.
A whopping 657 were killed by nothing other than the attackers own body. (Hands, feet, fist, etc.)
That’s nothing compared to the number of stabbing deaths though.
Over 1,700 people were stabbed to death in 2020.
There has been NO desire by liberals to outlaw knives.
So Representative Chip Roy was definitely telling the truth when he said “There are more people killed in the United States by hands and knives than rifles.”
Almost five times as many.
