Re: “How to Buy an Assault Rifle in North Carolina

Ignoring the obvious gaping hole in journalistic integrity through the grossly misused "assault rifle" label for AR-15s, one would wonder if the author is aware that, nationwide, more than double the amount of homocides were committed using only the assailants' body parts (fists, feet, etc.) than by rifle in 2013. Should we start referring to every individual's body parts as "death machines"? It would seem to me this would be more than doubly accurate than referring to AR-15s as death machines.

For those curious in actual data:
