Continuing the fine gun control tradition of just making stuff up

Yesterday, Senator Rangel was in the safest place in the world for a Democrat, a MSNBC program:

The Washington Times: Rangel: ‘Millions of kids’ being shot down by assault rifles

New York Rep. Charlie Rangel appeared on MSNBC this morning to opine about the assault weapons ban getting dropped from the Senate gun-control bill.

And here’s the money quote:

“We’re talking about millions of kids dying — being shot down by assault weapons,” he continued.

How many was that again?

The FBI’s 2011 data says only 323 people were killed by rifles, compared to 728 people who were killed by hands, fists, feet etc. Handguns are much more likely to be used in a homicide with 6,220 killed nationwide in 2011.

323 people were killed by ALL types of rifles, out of a population of a third of a billion people.
