Ban Axes!


“An officer with Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department came under an unprovoked attack Friday from a man wielding an ax, police said, the second such attack in two weeks that is prompting warnings and new protocols to officers on the job.” So reports  This follow last week’s hacking at two NYPD officers by an Islamic convert with “militant leanings.” The officer in the cruiser wasn’t hurt by the hatchet, but injured a shoulder after chasing the guy down before he ultimately escaped. “Metropolitan Police Chief Cathy Lanier issued a warning to officers to increase their vigilance for their safety, amid concern about recent attacks on authorities in New York and Canada, a law enforcement official told CNN.” Isn’t it time we had common sense axe control in our nation’s capital?

    We really need to ban cancer and heart disease…

    1. avatar Vhyrus says:

      Might as well cut out the middleman and ban death.

    Where was this ax purchased or was it a black market ax…..if we can’t control axes how are we going to keep our police safe. Is the National Ax Register run by the TSA still working? My God what are you Democrats doing get your liberal base moving and get these axes registered… other thing why didn’t the police officer take out his nice safe pistol and put a bullet in this guys ass? I would believe this is attempted murder.

    1. avatar Jus Bill says:

      No, not attempted murder, just another day on the job in the Nation’s Capital. More nuts per square mile than a California walnut grove.

        Which is heaviest; a ton of almonds, a ton of walnuts, 907.18 kg of battle axes or 2000 lbs of lead?

  3. avatar bob says:

    Looks like an assault axe. It has a handle. Where is Shannon demanding common sense axe laws?

  4. avatar jb says:

    I am pretty sure it is one of those full auto silenced assault 900 swing per minute axes

  5. avatar Ralph says:

    I have a camp axe and a tactical tomahawk, and I can’t imagine scarier weapons. I’d rather look down the barrel of a gun again then face off against one of those things.

    1. avatar Accur81 says:

      Aren’t axes for the young and strong?

      1. avatar Ralph says:

        Even an old guy can swing a tomahawk.

      2. avatar Former Water Walker says:

        I’m in my 60’s and do hammer curls with 90pound dumbbells…match that.

        1. avatar Colt Magnum says:

          I’m in my 50’s and I like my french fries curly.

        2. avatar NJ2AZ says:

          you should get your own column on The Truth about GUNS.

        3. avatar cmeat says:

          are they beautiful black 90lb dumbbells?

  6. avatar blahpony says:

    This is the same police chief that says that everyday people need a good reason to arm themselves.

    1. avatar Jus Bill says:

      This is also the same police chief that can’t think of a reason a normal person would need a gun.

  7. avatar Gregolas says:

    When axes are outlawed….

  8. avatar Gunr says:

    What caliber was that axe?

  9. avatar Hannibal says:

    Didn’t make it through the barrier, should have used a .40 axe

    1. avatar tdiinva says:

      Yeah but a 45 ACA would have cleaved the car in two and vaporized the occupants.

  10. avatar ggrimes2 says:

    Background check, 5 day waiting period, training classes, CCW permit should be in order.

  11. avatar Bigred2989 says:

    “Read my lips: NO NEW AXES!!!!

  12. avatar wayne says:

    We simply must do something about this ax violence.

    1. avatar v v ind says:

      Lets come up with a common sense plan and then hatch-et

      1. avatar Hannibal says:

        (groans all around)

  13. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    The dude obviously just wanted to axe him a question

    1. avatar v v ind says:

      Maybe he tripped and fell and it was all just an axeident

      1. avatar Amok! says:

        Axually, you’re both right.

        1. avatar 2hotel9 says:

          OK, guys, lets not get overly axcited and loose our heads here!

        2. avatar v v ind says:

          Whats unaxeceptable is that the perp was allowed to axecape. When someone blatantly attacks a LEO I’d axepect they’d go full throttle to detain him. Axespecially in the nation’s Capitol. I’m sure the officer has an axecuse and will be axeplaining himself.

        3. avatar v v ind says:

          Good news is the officer is now part of a very axeclusive club of LEO’s who’ve been attacked with axes. If its ok with you guys I think I will now axeit this dialog.

        4. avatar Amok! says:

          the perp had an axe to grind…

  14. avatar Timmy! says:

    Wow, what an ax-hole!

  15. avatar Full Cleveland says:

    . Good news for all you anti’s. The odds of a National Axe Association forming is pretty low. And there is no right to keep and bear axes. No one has a need for an axe in NYC. Common sense laws for axe control. Go for it!

    1. avatar Allen says:

      Axes aren’t arms?

      1. avatar Full Cleveland says:

        Well there you go. SCOTUS here we come.

  16. avatar Rob Eide says:

    If you axe me, That should be considered an AOW.

  17. avatar blahpony says:

    Some states won’t let you have an ax. They limit you to a hatchet.

  18. avatar 2hotel9 says:

    Actually that looks like a splitting maul. Gots to use the correct nomenclature! Can’t be giving innocent axes a bad reputation by misidentifying them.

  19. avatar MamaLiberty says:

    When you consider all of the things that could so easily be used as a deadly weapon, the “gun control” stuff gets ever more ridiculous. Sad thing is that the PTB seem to be working really hard to set up situations that will prove this to be very true… the hard way.

    If this guy had just waited for the cop to open the door and get out before he swung the ax… oh boy.

  20. avatar Gs650g says:

    I believe they need ask control as well.

  21. avatar Kevin says:

    Just remember, 40% of all axes are purchased without a background check…

  22. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

    These weapons of timber have no place on our city streets.

  23. avatar Mediocrates says:

    What we need is idiot control.

  24. avatar Alan Rose says:

    That ain’t no OEM window glass Bubba!

    Does DCPD replace their car glass with something… more substantial?

    Let’s get an Axe Cop unit going
