ATF: Rifles used in just 13% of crimes

ATF: Rifles used in just 13% of crimes: Most shooting crimes are done with pistols not rifles, despite Washington’s focus on AR and AK guns in its reaction to the weekend’s two mass slayings conducted with assault-style weapons. A new study of guns and gun control measures finds that rifles are used in just 13.7 percent of crimes. For pistols it is 76%, according to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.


In fact, said a release describing the study, “Washington, D.C. has a
higher rate of gun violence than any U.S. state despite having among the
highest number of gun laws.”
