    Because being killed by a knife is much better and safer than being shot by a gun right? Lol

    1. avatar Mk10108 says:

      Thank the gods Duke B is in goose step with King Obama in matters of gun control. That up close and personal blade insertion is far better than violating noise restrictions of a gun used to lawfully protect against a stabber. Lets hope he gets reelected.

    Humans use weapons. Always have and always will.

    Yep.
    And when I worked in Tampa, 10 and 12 year kids tended to stomp each other to death.
    Not much Big Brother can do to implement a ban on feet.

    “I’m not a criminologist”….but i play one on tv

      Maybe he stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night?

    2. avatar Hannibal says:

      Why is it that no one ever stops after “I am not an X, but…”

  5. avatar 16V says:

    I am in no way competent or qualified. I have no facts to back my assertion, but I can safely make any self-serving claim I want.

    NYC really does make you mental.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      I wonder if that’s an issue of ‘dissapearing’ into a major urban center.

      Maybe it lets the ‘apeshit’ out in people…

    “Some people, unfortunately, are turning to a different weapon.”

    Indeed. Who could have predicted such a thing? Well, all of us of course.

    And when you say ‘some people’ let’s qualify that a little. Some criminals. The law abiding of course, abiding by the law and all that, are thus left defenseless against these criminals.

    Again, who could have predicted such a thing? Well, all of us of course.

    What is it about government that seems to require the abandonment of simple common sense at all levels? What will it take to bring common sense back? Is it even possible?

    1. avatar Alex waits says:

      Disarming the citizenry further justifies the state to take more power, because the state can’t have a self reliant people otherwise it wouldn’t be able to perpetually grow itself.

    2. avatar Jar head. says:

      Mr .308, you hit the X ring with that comment! Dead center bullseye! And very eloquently said. Kudos!

    3. avatar Caveman says:

      Government,,,, common sense. Lol. Bunch a lawyers arguing about the definition of what the word is,is. IMO a person couldnt be president unless he has served in the military. Congressman and senators would have to work one year on a pig farm. Judges would have to do 6 months in jail. And legislators should be put on an island and bicker amoungst themselves until they finally built a boat or jumped in the sea and argued with a shark.

        Knocked that outta the park

  7. avatar Curtis in IL says:

    Thugs in NY City only need guns to shoot each other. For the common robbery or rape, a knife will do just fine against citizens who have been disarmed by their own government.

  8. avatar Pascal says:

    Oh, you mean like what happened in the UK and AU. The UK then attempted to pass a law to even limit how many cooking knives someone can have. Sure, ban whatever you want government’s of the world, you will simply drive things into the black market or people will simply substitute for something else. Banning objects versus addressing the causes of certain behavior never works. Shifty economies, crappy education systems and crappy laws that capture innocent people than actually stop crime simplly create an environment of desperate people who will do desperate things.

    1. avatar Mk10108 says:

      “Banning objects versus addressing the causes of certain behavior never works.”

      Herein is the problem. Government addressing causes of behavior. It is easier to ban an object. Have a conversation, splash ink on paper and thier work is done, hand off to enforcement.

      Equally it not governments responsibility to figure out why Johnny has abandonment issues or how he’s hard wired.

      Government’s responsibility is to support law abiders, encourage lawful self defense…but there’s no coin for them in that.

      To be fair, the English invented blunt-tipped steak knives for the dinner table centuries ago, to prevent drunken & enraged ‘gentlemen’ from going at it to the death over dinner. Sharp & pointy items were kept back in the kitchen.

      “Ruprecht! Put the cork, back on the fork!”
      “Why is the cork on the fork?”
      “To prevent him hurting himself, and others”

      1. avatar Geoff PR says:

        Oh, man! Thanks for the reminder!

        Gotta watch ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ again…

        “Excuse me, may I go to the bathroom?”

        “Yes, Ruprecht.”

        “Thank you….”

        Classic…

        1. avatar What about Bob says:

          Was describing that scene to someone earlier today.

          Awesome.

  9. avatar SgTexas92 says:

    Save a life, GIVE UP THE KNIFE. Lol they’re going full disarmament up in NYC.

  10. avatar Slimjim9 says:

    Archie Bunker strikes again – “would you feel bettah if they was pushed outta windahs?”

  11. avatar Jay in Florida says:

    Lets make sure no hardware store can advertise hammers. They cause humans to hit things.

    1. avatar sagebrushracer says:

      Framing Hammers, the new face of street crime! Now available with non-slip striking surface and 2x skull piercing spikes of Death!

      IMO i would take a framing hammer to a “rumble” over a screwdriver.

  12. avatar Garbagemouth says:

    I’d worry about this if most shooting occurred within 7 yards.

    And in other news, research shows that most shootings occur within 21 feet. Nowhere near the 7 yard danger zone of a knife.

    .

  13. avatar Gov. William J Le Petomane says:

    10 stabbings a day. Good job NYC!

  14. avatar Andrew Lias says:

    shitty people continuing to be shitty people just because they don’t have a gun? Imagine that.

  15. avatar DetroitMan says:

    Wait… so you’re telling me that criminals didn’t just throw up their hands and say “Aw, shucks!” when you banned guns. Say it ain’t so! I mean, who are these people who continue to defy the power of mommy government? There should really be a law against that! Oh wait…

    1. avatar Mk10108 says:

      Yep…ink on paper is magic. Fixes all problems bad people have allowing citizens to unburdened themselves with defending their lives.

      1. avatar nynemillameetuh says:

        Doubting that ink in paper is magic? Why do you hate the Constitution of these United States?

        1. avatar Caveman says:

          They used a different ink back then. Had the blood of patriots ,heroes, and gentlemen in it. The ink they use now is just cheap sht from china

  16. avatar Obama Sucks says:

    De Blasio is ignorant. Criminals access to guns as always. Just another sack-o-crap who pats themselves on the back because no one else will.

  17. avatar Indiana Tom says:

    I think Cain slew Abel without a gun. Rumour has it that he used the jawbone of an ass, but the murder weapon was never found.

    1. avatar dph says:

      Jawbone of an ass was Sampson slaying Philistines I believe.

      1. avatar barnbwt says:

        O J Sampson?

      2. avatar Indiana Tom says:

        Correct. The Church later started the rumour that Cain used the jawbone of an ass and that is why I stated the murder weapon has not been found. It was offbeat humour.

    2. avatar Caveman says:

      The jaw bone of an ass? I didnt know Hillary was alive back then, heck she dont look older 10 bc

      1. avatar Caveman says:

        Er no wait, its her ass that looks like a jawbone. Cain killed Able with Hillarys ass

  18. avatar FormerWaterWalker says:

    That’s not a knife>THAT’S a knife. Crocodile Dundee cleared up the knife thing years ago…the derp-it burns!

  19. avatar Rick K says:

    With those comments the socialist mayor keeps himself in the running as stupidest person on the planet.

  20. avatar Dyspeptic Gunsmith says:

    When I was a kid, knives were the weapon you feared much more in NYC than guns. Yes, there was crime with guns, but it seemed as tho every penny-ante punk had a switchblade or a drop knife.

  21. avatar Rooster says:

    Unintended consequences only a liberal couldn’t see coming.

  22. avatar Chris T from Ya 1q22 says:

    That from a reform jewish politician who uses, in his words, armed white racist police officers to guard his half black son 24 hours a day. All paid for at government expense.

  23. avatar James69 says:

    Now some smart guy can sell the $hit out of “stab vests” in NYC.

  24. avatar Jim Skelton says:

    Imagine 2 or 3 180 pounders kick in your door and you are a 80 year old man or woman, or a young person. I don’t care what weapon you might need to equalize that but only a good 44 will do or its game over every time. The weak have a right to an equalizer. DeBlasio, you are nuts.”

  25. avatar UF says:

    de Blasio is a walking fartbox. When he speaks most will laugh and feel embarrassed for him. Those that don’t are idiots. Under his guidance New York will be the next Detroit.

  26. avatar MP says:

    I have an axe.

    1. avatar Caveman says:

      Never bring a knife to an ax fight.

  27. avatar Steve Day says:

    They want to ban guns. They want to ban knives. They also want to ban bullet & blade resistant garments … just because, FU, that’s why!

    We’re the ruling class and you’re the scum we rule over. Now shut up and page your taxes!

  28. avatar DaProf says:

    Idiots/Liberals assign blame to things, not people.

    They can’t seem to identify the problem(s), so go after the tool.

    And when they restrict the tool…other tools come into play.

    And that’s because the problem(s) still exist.
