Now and then, mostly now, terminal stupidity runs amok. It comes in a few forms mostly Leftist protest but does infect supposedly learned people.

Knives are too sharp and filing them down is solution to soaring violent crime, judge says

A judge has proposed a nationwide programme to file down the points of kitchen knives as a solution to the country’s soaring knife crime epidemic.

Last week in his valedictory address, retiring Luton Crown Court Judge Nic Madge spoke of his concern that carrying a knife had become routine in some circles and called on the Government to ban the sale of large pointed kitchen knives.

Latest figures show stabbing deaths among teenagers and young adults have reached the highest level for eight years, and knife crime overall rose 22 per cent in 2017. [snip]

“The reason why these measures have little effect is that the vast majority of knives carried by youths are ordinary kitchen knives. Every kitchen contains lethal knives which are potential murder weapons.

As a result – said the judge – the most common knife a youth will take out is eight to ten inches, long and pointed, from his mother’s cutlery tray.

He asked: “But why we do need eight-inch or ten-inch kitchen knives with points?

“Butchers and fishmongers do, but how often, if at all, does a domestic chef use the point of an eight-inch or ten-inch knife? Rarely, if at all.”

“Acknowledging that any blade could cause injury, the judge pointed out “slash wounds are rarely fatal.”

So, he said: “I would urge all those with any role in relation to knives – manufacturers, shops, the police, local authorities, the government – to consider preventing the sale of long pointed knives, except in rare, defined, circumstances, and replacing such knives with rounded ends.

“It might even be that the police could organise a programme whereby the owners of kitchen knives, which have been properly and lawfully bought for culinary purposes, could be taken somewhere to be modified, with the points being ground down into rounded ends,” he said. [snip]

Once more the Loons on the Left blame the object rather than their idiotic laws.

When the Left doesn’t like an action, they feel the need to show their type of tolerance.

Shoppers Step Over Bodies at Hogg-Led Publix Protests

After having begun the week receiving national attention for being run by people too stupid to know the difference between academic achievement and pornography, Publix Supermarkets Inc. finished it letting everyone know that the company’s corporate stupidity is here to stay:
The Newly Press has more:

Liberal Democrats who believe in  bullying people and/or corporations into submission ought to feel proud today, ladies and gentlemen, because thanks to the bullying of David Hogg and his peers, one major Florida company has just abdicated its free speech rights.

The bullying started this week after Hogg, a survivor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting in Florida three months earlier, began targeting a popular employee-owned supermarket chain that employees over 190,000 Americans.

Publix supermarket chain attracted the 18-year-old gun control zealot’s ire after he learned that it had contributed over half a million dollars to the Florida gubernatorial campaign of Adam Putnam, a Second Amendment advocate and proud NRA member.

For those who have been busy enjoying life and not reading news about David Hogg, the kid’s modus operandi (not dirty, Publix, I swear!) is to use his Prized Progressive Puppet status to bully anyone who disagrees with him into silence. As the progs and Democrats really have nothing else going for them at the moment, he’s getting an extension on his fifteen minutes of fame.

While Hogg’s spiteful focus is currently on NRA supporters, the odds are probably pretty good that the kid will be branching out to a variety of other leftist issues before long. These thoughts and actions aren’t his own, remember. His handlers are grooming him for bigger things. Look for him to be targeting anyone who opposes taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood any day now. [snip]

Tripping over one of these fools and delivering an elbow to another’s solar plexus should convince them that BS protest can be painful.

The proper use of a firearm is displayed. Leftists don’t approve.

Police: Holly Hill Little Caesars employee shoots, kills attacker wearing mask

HOLLY HILL, Fla.A Holly Hill Little Caesars employee shot and killed a masked man who attacked him with a wooden post and scissors late Saturday, according to a police report.

Heriberto Feliciano, 28, was working at the pizza parlor at 158 Ridgewood Avenue around 11:50 p.m. when he was attacked by a man wearing a “clown mask,” police said.

The masked man, who police have not identified, hit Feliciano on the face and shoulder with a wooden post until it broke, and then tried to stab him with scissors, police said.

Feliciano told police he was able to reach a gun on him and shot the man four to five times at close range, according to the police report.

The masked man was taken to Halifax Medical Center, where he later died.

Police released this picture of the mask the man wore:

Police Chief Steve Aldrich said there’s no indication that anyone beside the masked man was involved in the attack.

“I’m glad that he was able to defend himself and that he’s okay. It’s just unfortunate that this whole episode occurred,” he said.

Fortunate for Heriberto that he doesn’t reside in the UK. There he would have been arrested for defending himself and causing the death of the perp. That he used a gun would have caused a myocardial infarction.

Some of the idiocy the Left spouts in their mindless rants against guns… and the last from Reagan, the real reason for the Second Amendment.

Damn, a gun in a Gun Free Zone stopped a mass shooting. How come no Maryland politician thought of that?

YOU ARE AT RISK.

The Great Liberal Misnomer

It seems that the so-called ‘Gun Free Zones” are not gun free. Some miscreant invades that ‘sanctified’ zone with such a banned item, intent on visiting mayhem upon the unarmed. Then he obvious question is asked, “How do we prevent this?” The penultimate question should be, “How do we stop this?” which is different.

The answer to the latter is always we send in a gun(s) to terminate this activity. In security terms, this is called a reaction force and is always late and and bodies short. The former question’s answer is to have guns in place carries by individuals with permits and who are proficient in their use. While this may not prevent some deaths it does cut down on reaction time, limiting the number of victims and possibility preventing any injuries.

Two more items that go far in changing the landscape on these events. One is getting rid of the idiot concept of “Gun Free Zones”, they aren’t and just another Liberal bit of stupidity. Second is to stop the press conferences. Give a sheet to the press with basic data and stop giving publicity to the bozos who commit these acts. Let the press do what they do best; make up stories to fit their fantasy world. They are going to do that anyway.

Observations

This bill, if is passes the House and gets 60 votes in the Senate, will cause an uproar in several blue states such as New York, Maryland, Illinois, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts. There are others but these will have several litters of kittens.

Twenty-Three State Attorneys General Back National Concealed Carry Reciprocity

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is currently making its way through the House. It is expected to be voted out of Committee and onto the House floor. If passed, which would also require 60 votes in the Senate, the legislation will allow individuals to travel across state lines with their lawfully issued permits.

“This bill amends the federal criminal code to allow a qualified individual to carry a concealed handgun into or possess a concealed handgun in another state that allows individuals to carry concealed firearms,” a summary of the bill states. “A qualified individual must: (1) be eligible to possess, transport, or receive a firearm under federal law; (2) carry a valid photo identification document; and (3) carry a valid concealed carry permit issued by, or be eligible to carry a concealed firearm in, his or her state of residence.”

“Additionally, the bill specifies that a qualified individual who lawfully carries or possesses a concealed handgun in another state: (1) is not subject to the federal prohibition on possessing a firearm in a school zone, and (2) may carry or possess the concealed handgun in federally owned lands that are open to the public,” the summary continues.

The bill would prevent lawful citizens from being unfairly targeted by harsh gun laws in a number of states or inadvertently violating a patch work of different laws across the country as they travel.  [snip]

“The letter states that H.R. 38 is a much-needed solution to a problem facing gun owners and poses no threat to public safety. “The exercise of Congress’s power is particularly warranted in this case because too many states refuse to allow law-abiding visitors to carry concealed firearms,” Cox continued. “These states leave people without any real option for self-defense. Allowing concealed carry across state lines will not result in an increased risk of crime, as those states that have reciprocal concealed-carry agreements have not encountered any significant safety issues.”

The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act is expected to see a full floor vote this week.
