It's Time to Strengthen Our Knife-Control Laws...

by Thomas DiLorenzo

...after fourteen people were stabbed today at a Texas Community College.  All knives should be registered with the government; everyone should undergo a background check before being allowed to purchase dinnerware; all knives now on the market should be dulled and their sharp edges made square; all boy scouts known to possess pen knifes should be immediately disarmed and placed on psychotropic drugs to calm them down; trained police armed with hunting knives should be stationed in every public school; and no one should be allowed to own more than eight knives of any kind.  I welcome further suggestions.   It's for the children.

I don't see how anyone could object to these proposals. To paraphrase President Obama from his speech in Connecticut today:  "We need to do everything we can to reduce the likelihood that our children will be stabbed to death in the streets."

17454 I hate to say it but Bic pens used to be advertised punching a hole in an oil can and it kept on writing. OMG I hope this post doesn't cause someone to go on a murder spree with a BIc pen.

Once guns are gone, "knife crime" will be targeted, until there are no more sharp objects in civilian hands. Then there can be whole new government departments created to "police" this, and everybody will have to call on "professionals" (government employees of course) to cut up your steak.
