Anti-Gun Activist Knifed to Death

When liberals have accomplished their goal of effectively repealing the Second Amendment, we'll be more than ever at the mercy of the government, but at least we'll be safe from each other, right? Wrong, obviously.

In Britain, where moonbats aren't encumbered by the pesky Second Amendment, anti-gun campaigner Pat Regan has been found stabbed to death in her apartment. Too bad she didn't have a gun; she might have been able to defend herself.

Mrs. Regan started the Leeds branch of Mothers Against Guns after her son Danny was shot. Her grandson has been arrested for stabbing her.

In a world with guns, 53-year-old grandmothers like Pat Regan have a chance. In a world with only knives, not so much. When knives are banned, and it comes down to fists and blunt objects, they'll really be in trouble.

Hat tip: Free Republic; on a tip from Cheetah.

When knives are banned, it comes down to eating kidney with a spork.

Knives will never be banned, you can make them in any garage quite easily. An old file will do fine as the start point. Files actually make some pretty good knives, Buck Knives was founded on turning used up files into knives ... But any hunk of steel, from car springs to other junk can be turned into a good enough knife in short order. 1095 steel is a s common as it gets.

Ignorance, the most expensive commodity produced by mankind.

Knives are banned in prisons aren't they?

Guys in prison make all sorts of cool weapons - functioning crossbows using nothing but rolled up pages from a magazine and rubber band, melt pens into lethal weapons and other assorted weapons that would put MacGyver to shame.

I have a friend who grew up in London... he's been in the states for about 15 years now, got his green card and everything :) Anyway, when he first moved over, he used to remark about how he almost never saw brawls in bars. Apparently it was a nightly occurance in Watford. I explained it to him thusly:

"Yeah, Mike, that's how you get shot."

He loves it here, because he feels ten times safer than he ever did back home.

Is this considered ASSAULT AND "Moon"BATTERY?

Wonder if her last thoughts were "DAMN I WISH I HAD A GUN RIGHT NOW?" or were they..."Maybe I will just be nice to him and he will be nice to me...he is just misunderstood...maybe aboused by his daddy....let me just give you what you WAAAAAAA GRGLGRGLGRLG Thump"

She probably tried to used diplomacy to appeal to the better nature of the knife wielding psycho.

As Spock on Star Trek once said "We must acknowledge, once and for all, that the purpose of diplomacy is to prolong a crisis."

Irony, it would seem is not without a sense of humor.

Exactly. An armed society is a polite society.
