UK Doctors’ Called For Kitchen Knife Ban

Yes, seriously.

A team from West Middlesex University Hospital said violent crime is on the increase – and kitchen knives are used in as many as half of all stabbings.

They argued many assaults are committed impulsively, prompted by alcohol and drugs, and a kitchen knife often makes an all too available weapon.

The research is published in the British Medical Journal.

The researchers said there was no reason for long pointed knives to be publicly available at all.


Who’s crazy now?

Anti-Gun laws in the UK have been an epic fail.

Anti-Gun laws in Chicago have been an epic fail.

Anti-Gun laws everywhere have been a failure.

Yet the left continues to try to take away guns from honest law abiding citizens.  It’s never going to work.  It’s never worked.


Bloomberg Turns Down National Guard Over Guns

Bloomberg has reportedly turned down additional help from the U.S. National Guard. “We don’t need it,” Bloomberg insists, despite pleas from the boroughs for back-up. “The NYPD is the only people we want on the street with guns.”


Do I have this right?

New Yorkers would rather starve than have someone with a firearm bring them something to eat?  If so then they deserve to starve.

Several Stabbed At NYC Subway Station

Three people were injured in a stabbing on the escalator of a subway station in Queens Wednesday morning.

An MTA spokesman said that Dina Saint-Fleur, 25, slashed at least two people after getting into a dispute on a J train around 8:45 a.m. Earlier reports indicated as many as seven people stabbed.

Mayor Bloomberg and his organization Mayors Against Handguns have so far been silent on this event.  New York, much like Chicago, has extremely onerous gun control laws.  However most criminals don’t appear to worry about obeying the law.  And then we have those that maybe can’t afford a gun yet.  So they carry knives.

Over 500 people get stabbed each year in Chicago.  No word on the knife control policy of Mayors Bloomberg and Rahm.

New Govt Laser Reads You At Molecular Level

The Department of Homeland Security will soon be using a laser at airports that can detect everything about you from over 160-feet away.

Gizmodo reports a scanner that could read people at the molecular level has been invented. This laser-based scanner – which can be used 164-feet away — could read everything from a person’s adrenaline levels, to traces of gun powder on a person’s clothes, to illegal substances — and it can all be done without a physical search. It also could be used on multiple people at a time, eliminating random searches at airports.

The laser-based scanner is expected to be used in airports as soon as 2013, Gizmodo reports.

Really?!  Is this what we’ve come to?

I wonder what the ACLU’s position is going to be on this.  At the airport I kinda understand; you are giving your consent to be searched.  That’s the bargain for what is supposed to be a safe flight.

But how long before Mayor Bloomberg decides that he wants to use this on people just walking down the street?

1984 here we come!!
