Is It Time For A National Knife Ban?

It’s time for some "common sense" knife-reform...

In downtown Pittsburgh two women were stabbed. One died and the other is in stable condition at last report.

Over on the other side of the country, a 33-year-old Hispanic man in Santa Ana, CA, went on a two-hour stabbing spree. Four people are dead and two wounded.

Back on the East Coast, with horrified patrons as a backdrop, a man walked into a nail salon in Queens, NY and plunged a knife into his wife’s back over and over until she lay dead on the floor. All this in just a couple of days in America.

Time For Knife-Control!

It’s obvious the time has come for a national knife control bill. Since we must legislate all weapons based on their usage, it is vital that at the very least we begin background checks on those who want to purchase knives. The suspect in California, after all, had a criminal record.

Progressive retailers across America sprang into action. Within hours of the nationwide epidemic of stabbings, Williams-Sonoma, Sur La Table, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and the kitchen departments in Macy’s, Kohl’s, and Target began removing kitchen knives from the shelves.

Executives from Walmart HQ said they are seriously considering taking similar action.

Meanwhile on Capitol Hill – and flanked by fellow members of the Democratic Party – Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held a press conference calling for a national ban on knives. “If it means eating our watermelon whole and cutting our meat with plastic, then Democrats plan to lead the way to a more safe and secure America.” After Pelosi spoke, she graciously yielded the microphone to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). “I am proud to be the one who stopped J.A. Henckels from relocating to New York City. No amount of jobs is worth trading for American lives,” she said.

On the campaign trail, Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) said he plans to publish the names of every national knife manufacturer CEO who does not take immediate action to restrict knife sales. Castro then took to Twitter, saying, “People need to know who is willing to sell knives and who is not. It’s a matter of national safety. Anyone selling knives without thorough background checks should be shamed for putting profits above lives. As such, I am calling for people all over this great nation of ours to rise, boycott and protest #walmart, @dickssportinggoods and #acehardware.”

Not to be outdone, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) pointed out that the Cherokee Nation stopped using knives generations ago and that she plans to donate to the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center to honor the fallen. Then, while at a campaign stop at Chipotle in Iowa, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) said, “Under my watch, New Jersey was the first state in the union to call for rigorous blade background checks.”

On the South Lawn of the White House, the press corps gathered to get a reaction regarding the stabbing frenzy from the president. CNN’s Jim Acosta could be heard shouting over the whirring blades of Marine One, “Mr. President, in light of the recent spate of stabbings, do you support a national knife ban?” President Trump responded, “Knives? I have always liked knives, especially when I’m eating steak.”

This comment set off a firestorm from the Fourth Estate, with The New York Times out in front of the pack. Just before deadline for their failing print edition, editors put up a front-page article entitled “Trump Says Steak Comes First – American Lives Second.”

This caused the Portland, OR, ANTIFA Chapter to don their masks and take to the streets, where police stood by as concrete milkshakes were thrown at the CEO of Cuisinart, owner of the Knife Center based in Oregon. A shaken Steel M. Blade was taken to the hospital following the melee. He is reported in stable condition.

Meanwhile, in Fairfax, VA, at the headquarters of the National Knife Association, angry protesters swarmed the building. Fairfax County police were called to the scene to put those inside the NKA on lock-down until they could clear the area.

Do Americans have a right to own knives? Should extensive background checks regarding the criminal records and mental health of potential knife buyers become law? These are the crucial questions flooding the airwaves of the nation.

Ultimately, it comes down to whether Americans are willing to rip meat from the bone with their bare hands or be permitted to cut it in with a knife in a civil way.

But liberals are the ones who want to ban everything. At some point as a independent voter I am going to have to ask a liberal permission to take a shit.

Im not comparing Guns vs Knives casualties, what I am trying to state is where does it end?

Once the Guns are gone, Knives are next... England is a prime example. Next up, they will ban cars / vans.

Arguing to ban knives is dumb but the argument does serve a purpose. It highlights what you should be thinking about concerning guns.

Knives are tools some people use to kill other people just like guns. Why is it almost universally accepted that a strict ban on knives is absurd? The answer is because knives offer so much other positive utility. Any negative utility knives present to society is more than offset by the positive utility they bring to the table.

When you think about guns in our American society, you should be thinking about the positive and negative utility guns bring. Ask yourself which way the scale tips. If you think about just the positive or just the negative you're doing it wrong.

Yeah, Hyperbole. The best you can do is come up with shit from the UK. We don't live in the UK, not sure if you realized that or not.

No, that's not why it's almost universally accepted as absurd. Most people with even the slightest intelligence recognize that we cannot prevent people from finding objects, including their own fists, to kill people, but guns are by far the most effective and it's not even close.

Guns are literally designed to kill things....c'mon now.

The objective isn't to stop all murders from happening. It's to reduce the casualties, and reduce the effectiveness of psychos who decide to go off the deep end.

You and I, or a group of people, stand a much better chance defending against a knife wielder than a gun. Especially if you see it coming.
