    Rebuffed in banning guns, prohibitionists are now turning to knives.

    Don't forget it's also the state that's giving us that liberal gun banner Romney.

    Well the Boston City Council is as stupid as the Senators. The tape should have been played back for that arrogant ass.

    I swear the world has just gone stupid

    I was at the VA in Bonham Tx a couple of weeks ago for a blood test (damn rat poison)and in the waiting room as an old Vet, he had to be in his 70-80's and he was cleaning his finger nails with a small knife, the blade was no longer than 1 inch, and this dizzy assed nurse comes out and starts in on him telling him to put it away there are no weapons allowed in the hospital

    I told her I think we're all safe, but she kept on and on, he just ignored her, but I thought she was going to call the VA police, but she was paged on the intercom before she could

    Not a speck of common sense

    My wife and I were looking for new flat wear, knives,forks spoons and I saw a nice set, different,2 forks with 3 and 4 tines but the knife was round at the tip, not semi pointy but round. All of the knives in all of the sets were like that. I asked the sales person, so it cant be used as a weapon was his answer. We left but its like that now,look around.

    For you people not in the People's republic of Mass:

    TO carry a firearm, one needs a License to Carry Firearms Class A, which lets one carry concealed in any place not prohibited by statute (e.g. Schools and federal buildings).

    So....one can carry a 1911 under one's coat. ANd STILL get jammed up for a knife over the City's length limit (there's no State restriction WRT blade length.)

    I also heard of a person cited in Salem, MA, for too-big-a-knife while legally carrying concealed. (It was discussed on another forum, I have no specifics).

    The city of Worcester has a blade length restriction, but a License to Carry exempts you from it (though it's not supposed to... it's for firearms!)

    Things can get interesting around here.

    Makes sense to me. Give a guy a fork...and he'll get a knife. Give him a knife, and he'll turn into a drive-by shooter in a matter of days.

    If you're a law abiding citizen, you sure don't need a knife.

    The thing that gets me is that about 3 years ago, an old lady fell on the escalator on the Boston subway, and strangled because her scarf got caught.

    None of the passersby or lookers-on had a knife, which would have saved her.

    "A knifeless man is a lifeless man," my 13 yo told me the other day.

    What, now you've got a problem with GM bond holders being literally robbed with blessings and help from the U.S. government? Or with them paying a "CEO" $9-Million to keep his mouth shut while the government did it's criminal deed, meanwhile he never moved within 1000 miles of Detroit?

    Almost everyone who connits a crime with a gun had a knife before they had a gun.

    This is incontrovertable proof that knives are indeed a gateway to guns.

    Similarly, almost every Democrat stepped in dog poo at some point in their lives before becoming a Democrat. This proves that stepping in dog poo makes people turn into Democrats.

    95% of murderers ate bread in the week before they committed their crime.

    Therefore eating bread leads to murder.

    Bread is a gateway food.

    Having a brain and using it is what led many thinking people to become Republicans.

    The brain is a gateway organ.
