The Reverend Keeps It Real

al sharpton 1980s

In a recent interview, it was pointed out to Al Sharpton that gun regulations may not bring an end to violence in our country. His response? We should then consider regulating knives.

Then you deal with knives. The same thing as if you have a head cold and the same thing you do if you have a head cold and the cold is gone and you have a headache. Then you take headache medicine. The job of society is to deal with whatever problem confronts it.

Just like England. Because their gun bans work so well.

Skipping past Sharpton's implicit admission that gun bans aren't the answer, we come to the real question: at what point does creeping incrementalism sink to pure absurdity? Should we expect bans on pillows and sacks of quarters soon after?

Perhaps I should start hoarding hedge clippers. They'll be worth eleventy billion dollars at the next lawn and garden show.
