Al Sharpton: Next Up, Knife Control

Rev. Al Sharpton told a radio caller that it could be time for knife legislation in addition to gun laws.

“In any civilized society you do not see massacres continue to happen, from Tucson to Aurora to Columbine to Virginia Tech to where we are now in Newtown to Chicago and you keep the same laws when clearly they’re not working,” the MSNBC host said on his radio show Friday.

“What happens when the criminal goes to knives, Al?” the caller asked.

“Then you deal with knives,” Sharpton replied. “The same thing as if you have a head cold and the same thing you do if you have a head cold and the cold is gone and you have a headache. Then you take headache medicine. The job of society is to deal with whatever problem confronts it.”

Seriously?  KNIFE control?  How many ways can they disarm us?  Will they eventually take my frying pan?  My big cast iron chicken frying skillet?  Will I be allowed a butter knife, a steak knife in Sharptons's utopia of knife control and gun control, where no person has the means to protect themselves? 

Gun control is merely victim dis-armament.  I don't believe in that.  I might someday be a victim, but I will NOT be a dis-armed victim.

Nyc has laws about knives being carried, doesnt stop stabbings, just like gun control doesnt stop shootings.

Ignorant asses.

Anyone else remember when he wanted to make it illegal for white folks to buy over 18 inches of rope? Lol

 Is this a joke, or was he serious?  I hear forks are dangerous too.

I won't watch the video. I am not a fan of his and will not listen.

All I can say is good grief!
