Infographic: The Curious Focus on Assault Weapons in the US

In a previous post we highlight and discuss the murder rate in the US by weapon type, challenging the focus on assault weapons as a priority in reducing violence and homicide in America. There are also great discussions on gun rights and gun violence policy in the STC forum which we encourage you to go dive into!

Some great comments from that post prompted us to do some more research on the matter, which we've compiled into the infographic below. 

If you like it, we hope you'll share it with your friends, and we encourage you to post it on your own blog with attribution.

Think thoroughly, enjoy, and let us know in the comments what other data might be helpful in understanding the issue.
