"Knife Control" anyone?

This article is about a knife attack in Germany. Twenty eight people were injured. Twenty eight! It was probably an assault knife packed with features that make it attractive to criminals. The perp probably stabbed from the hip.

I think it's high time that the progressive elements in Germany enact some common-sense knife control measures. Even one attack is too many. If it saves just one life it will be worth it. Everybody now: "IF BRITAIN CAN DO IT SO CAN WE!"

Or could it be that a violent criminal is a violent criminal, no matter what weapon he has or doesn't have in his hand? That conclusion is just too difficult for some people to reach, I suppose.

When knives are banned and thugs start killing people with pipewrenches and screwdrivers, maybe the antis will clue in to the fact that weapons are merely inanimate tools.

Nah. Too obvious.

I'm really enjoying reading your don't find much conservative media or publishing up where I live. Your post reminds me of one of my favorite bumper stickers: "Guns don't kill people, people kill people." You hit it right on the head. When will people realize these things? You take obvious weapons (guns, knives, numbchucks) away from a criminal and he'll just use something else. Along the same lines, preventing your little boys from playing with toy guns is useless! A boy will make a gun out of anything if he doesn't have a toy gun, and then he will pretend to shoot things/people with it. It's inevitable, get over it, and start teaching your kid gun safety rather than attempting to shelter him from 'violent objects'. Again, guns aren't violent, the people that hold them and use them in a crime are.
