In 2011, there were 323 murders committed with a rifle but 496 murders committed with hammers and clubs. There were 356 murders in which a shotgun was the deadly weapon of choice.

Assault rifles?

This is like saying "more people are killed by station wagons than by hatchbacks, so OBVIOUSLY all cars and trucks are safe."
