Hell it might work. I'm pretty sure that 100% of all knives used in felonies are taken from law abiding citizens.
And all knives have one purpose: to cut things. We just can't allow that. People could get cut. Just get everyone to use plastic knives to eat.
In liberal fantasy land that must make sense.
The latest youth violence crime in Toronto was not using a hand gun this time around, it was using a plain old knife.
That didn't stop Dalton McGuilty from standing up and repeating his oft stated battle cry "Let's declare war on handguns."
How in the heck that has anything to do with a teen getting stabbed is beyond me. He's also on a rant against the "Americanization of public education." You can tell right off the bat McGuilty is running low on arguments when he attacks an idea as being "American."
Honestly it's like I'm French in the 19th century trying to explain to my fellow countrymen that Brits are NOT all ruthless pigs out to get us. We have to separate propaganda in politics from reality. The brits weren't terrible bastards out to get the French. And the French weren't stinkin' pigs either.
What is McGuilty railling against? It's having metal detectors and armed guards in schools. How that is "American" is outside my intellectual capacity. What's worse is that John Not-So-Tory agrees with McGuilty.
Stop listening to the amalgamated Dalton McTory political machine. The only way to prevent these school killings from happening is to install metal detectors in schools and maybe just maybe have a couple constables around to keep a presence.
It's harsh. It's unfortunate. But it's the reality on the ground.
We either suck it up and do the right thing, or we can keep on going on blaming the "British Pigs" for all our ills.
