Stabbings cry for a total ban on all assault knives; it's only sensible

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

A 16-year-old girl was stabbed to death at school in Milford, Connecticut. A woman was stabbed Friday at a hotel in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. A woman stabbed her 7-month-old baby to death in Livermore, California. A boy in Murysville, Pennsylvania stabbed 21 people at school. A 19 year old woman was stabbed to death in the Bronx on Saturday. Someone in L.A. is stabbing homeless people, and three people were stabbed after a Broncos football game.

It is time to act. I am calling for a ban on the sale of military-style assault knives. Any knife longer than four inches with a double edge, handle longer than six inches, or a retractable or folding blade will not be sold. No person can purchase more than one knife a month. No knife holder with a capacity of more than two knives can be sold. All weapons of this type will have to be registered with the government and cannot be transferred, sold, or given, but must be destroyed when the owner passes. All cities will have a buyback program to buy up all the antique and valuable knives for one dollar. All public places such as schools, colleges, theaters, shopping malls, ect. will be declared as knife free zones, so everyone will know that these people are disarmed. These are only sensible, safe measures. Only by disarming sane, law abiding citizens can we protect ourselves from a few deranged loonies. Remember, its for the children.

P.S. Lefty Lizzie's memoirs are out. How I pretend to be an Indian and wound up in the U.S. Senate. Don't miss it.
