Since statistics show that most murders are committed using knives as the weapon of choice, should we force people to fill out forms and be subjected to background checks before purchasing paring knives or that steak knife set? And can we still give those as wedding gifts considering they are 4 times more likely to be used as murder weapons than guns? And people often put them in wooden holders and leave them out in plain sight for anyone to access. Or simply open the kitchen drawer and, viola, your own personal arsenal. This is alarming! If the real objective is to save lives, then how can anyone with a conscience abide by so many stores selling knives like candy? Baseball bats or other heavy objects are the second most used weapons. This covers a wide range of household and sports items. Hockey sticks or golf clubs can be dangerous. Fireplace tools can do some serious damage. I could probably put someone in the hospital or worse with the large vase in my living room. Imagine dropping a bowling ball on someone's head. Most of these things are readily available to any unstable or angry person on the planet. The world is a very dangerous place. I hope if someone ever breaks into my home, the worst weapon he has is a knife- because a gun beats a knife. Somehow, the left will yawn at this. You see, it's okay if people get killed one a time, like more than one murder a day in Chicago so far this year. It's only bad when more than one person gets killed at a time. Even though way more people will be brutally murdered using weapons readily available or even using one's bare hands, the left is going after the one thing that people can actually use to defend themselves against the other threats. Again, way more people are killed each year by knives, heavy objects or hands. But the alarmists just want gun control. Why?
