Strict gun control? Check. Dirt bike ban? Working on it. Hmmm…what to do next to become that violence-free nirvana everyone dreams of? A couple of Boston city councilors, Michael Ross and Tito Jackson, have hit upon just the thing. Knife control. Beantown’s thinkers of great thoughts and prognosticators of great prognostications know just what to do about knife crime – regulate the pointy little buggers. It’s worked well in the UK, right? “This is just something that’s not regulated,” as Councillor Ross noticed to his horror. Shall we help them with some logical next steps? Hardware stores selling lead pipes. Sporting goods stores pushing baseball bats. They’re not regulated either. Two more “public safety loopholes” that must be addressed. Good thing they haven’t restricted tar and feathers. Yet.
