...to the problem of murder. Making guns harder to get doesn't prevent murder. The murderous simply turn to other weapons, as noted in this article from WHDH-TV. The headline is "Police See Surge In Gang Attacks Using Machetes". Now, if machetes are banned, murderous thugs will simply turn to other weapons, such as Chinese throwing stars and Japanese metal chain whips. (Mmmm....no racist remarks, please.) And if those weapons are banned, thugs will simply turn to baseball bats, then to fists and feet.
You know what that means. Procreation will have to be banned in order to prevent the production of any more fists and feet. After all, the weapons-control freaks will say, guns don't kill people; people kill people. Now, where have I heard that one?
