First off we would like to send out our condolences to the families and loved ones lost in the tragic shootings of Orlando.

Unfortunately during these emotional times some individuals use this opportunity to speak about political topics in which tear at the heart strings of those that chose to just listen to what someone has to say rather than do their own research. But fear not my friends as I have done the legwork for you and hopefully I can help piece together the fabricated truth in a way that a logical person can grasp.

During this time believe it or not there were still homicides due to rifles. Let’s check out the numbers which came directly off the FBI.GOV website. Just for clarification I stated at 1996 because that’s where the site went back to.
