Al Sharpton Calls for Knife Control
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 01/02/2013 11:16:30 PM PST by chessplayer

The battle over laws limiting gun ownership and use is far from over, but Rev. Al Sharpton is already looking ahead toward the next “weapon” he feels should be regulated.

During his radio program last Friday, the MSNBC talk show host responded to a caller who asked: “What happens when the criminal goes to knives, Al?” Sharpton's answer: “Then you deal with knives.”

“Then you deal with knives.” -Al Sharpton

Then you deal with baseball bats.
Then you deal with anti-freeze.
Then you deal with piano wire.

Wealth. How does a man who instigates the burning of a Jewish business become a civil rights leader? The thing about Leftists and their control of the media is that it’s driven by an all-consuming obsession which is complete security. The never wish to feel threatened on needy at any time in their lives and this requires control of others and their efforts and wealth.

They outlawed switchblades that the gangs carried over 50 years ago!

Didn’t stop anyone from killing with knives at all.

Seems to me an outright ban on kitchen knives is totally ridiculous...

therefore, liberals will only pass kitchen knife laws that make sense:

1. Each kitchen knife must have a safety lock.

2. Kitchen knives must be registered.

3. Assault kitchen knives to be regulated.

4. Military-style kitchen knives to be regulated.

5. Kitchen knife owners must have a kitchen knife safe.

6. Kitchen knives must be kept dull, and only sharpened prior to their use; then, they must be made dull again.

Ye Gods!!!!!!!!!

What’s next?

Toilet seat control? A mandatory law that requires men to close the toilet seat after relieving themselves?

Don’t laugh. If they can regulate knives they can regulate EVERYTHING you do and say.

People with “sharp” in their names should be banned. They are dangerous.

So, Al, why don’t you go into your neighborhoods and take those guns and knives from your people?

We also need a ban on kitchen knives with bayonet mounts.

When there is nothing Godly about him, how does he get people to believe he is a Reverend? His claim to fame is that he followed MLK around. Even MLK’s relatives are conservatives... Sharpton is a big pile of dirt.

Hands and feet are used more often than knives.

This is only so the politicians can feel good about themselves.

What an idea! Each unemployed person could be assigned to each employed person to make sure they don't break any regulations. They would be assigned a video cam, be paid well, and be given a bonus each time they caught an infraction. This would almost wipe out our current unemployment problem.

If anyone starts stocking up on these, I recommend most Kershaw and Spyderco brands. Cold Steel also makes some great pieces. I personally would avoid Benchmade. I paid $120 for a 940 and it turned out to be a lemon.

....and after all that - when it boils down to “hand” crimes - do we cut them off or obligate mittens?

You don’t need a pointed knife to do damage. My wife’s favorite kitchen utensil is her 2-1/2 pound cleaver. She likes this, because it will go through bone as easily as the soft tissues and makes preparing food easier.

That one's my favorite. Funny.
