While the left wants people to believe that guns are one of the top reasons people are killed in the U.S., some in Congress are revealing that this is not the case.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) claimed during Wednesday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on gun violence that more people are killed every year with knives than are killed with rifles, and his claim turns out to be true.

“In 2019 there were 1,476 homicides by knife. There were 364 homicides by rifle,” he added. “Blunt objects, actually, clubs, hammers, etc., counted for more homicides than rifles.”
