Quote of the Day: Where’s There’s a Will There’s A Way Edition by Robert Farago | May 01, 2015 | 16 comments facebook twitter linkedin email “I don’t play with guns, so I stabbed him.” – homicide suspect Darrell Carter [via penlive.com] comments actionphysicalman says: May 1, 2015 at 08:05 A man of principle! Reply Chip Bennett says: May 1, 2015 at 08:06 He said “gun”. He obviously wanted to use a gun. Shannon and Lad will dutifully count this knife murder as “gun violence”. EDIT: he claims that his victim threatened to shoot him with a gun. So that’s even more proof that this constitutes “gun violence”! Reply the ruester says: May 1, 2015 at 08:10 It should have been a DGU? This guy brought a knife to a gunfight and won. Seems like failure to deploy on his victims part. Reply Shire-man says: May 1, 2015 at 08:16 That means his victims went to heaven, right? As opposed to the hellish purgatory that people who are murdered with a firearm are sent to wait for Shannon Watts and Bloomberg to release them by passing more gun control. Reply Another Robert says: May 1, 2015 at 09:08 No, it means he’s not dead at all. The “homicide investigation” will reveal that soon I expect and the charges will be dropped. They probably only charged the suspect in the first place because they were confused as to which one had the gun.

Thank goodness for domestic violence restraining orders keeping guns out of this man’s hands, or else someone could have gotten hurt. Reply JJVP says: May 1, 2015 at 08:27 Loved the one comment to the article by Jibaro Jibaro 3 days ago Without a doubt, another good reason to start doing background checks and forced registration of anyone purchasing a knife. Surely, this will be the only way to stop these stabbings! Eventually, why not confiscating them all? Those knife owners who think that they are protected by the 2nd Amendment must realize that owing a knife is for the exclusive use of the military, not civilians… -“But, but, what will we use at home or at the restaurant?” That’s easy! Call the police and ask them to cut the meat for you. -“But, by the time they arrive, my steak will be cold.” Well, what do you rather have cold, the steak you are about to eat or your own meat? Reply Mk10108 says: May 1, 2015 at 08:38 More evidence that gun confiscation is theater. And when knives, bats, sharpen sticks are confiscated, we’ll switch to sharpened leaf springs, then they’ll confiscate, grinders, files and iron ore, ovens and finally rocks. And when that fails, hand amputation. At what point do legislators understand that anyone who wants to kill can. Reply Question Authority says: May 1, 2015 at 09:38 One more “gun violence” tragedy averted! /sarc Reply Joel from PA says: May 1, 2015 at 09:44 Doing it the old fashion way here in PA….have a great weekend everybody!! Reply John in Ohio says: May 1, 2015 at 09:49 I understood his statement in a different way. What I got was something like, “I don’t mess around when someone threatens with a gun so I stabbed him.” or “I don’t play around when seriously threatened.” Then again, the other interpretation is also valid.

I wonder if they can get Bloomberg to pay them more money to make laws to lock everyone up in padded rooms. Reply Southern Cross says: May 1, 2015 at 18:17 When Jamaica banned firearms completely, the murder rate dropped for about six months. After a year the murder rate was the same as before and kept climbing. When you see shows about Jamaica, look in the background. You will see plastic buckets beside every front door. They are not to collect water but to hold acid, which is the most common form of home defense. Pour the acid over the assailant.
