#1 Yes, and MSM reports a "surge" in "gun violence" even though homicides declined year over year.

#5 While looking for the raw FBI data to support this headline, I found Truth or Fiction which says the claim is "Decontextualized".

They post several similar claims from various sources, then spinning and spinning until I was dizzy, before finally claiming "Overall, gun homicides numbered far more than knife-related homicides, but a smaller number of those homicides were rifle-related."

On the other hand, that's what the articles said - knives kill more people than rifles.

But if handguns are more deadly than rifles, why the big deal about rifles/shotguns?

Because that's what Beto and his socialist brethren are harping about at the moment.

They'll come for the handguns later.
