Where are the knife control groups?

We had an attempted assassination of a U.S. political leader with a gun and one month later a Google News search for his name yields almost 8000 hits and a Bing News search gets you 21700 hits.

We had an attempted assassination of a U.S. political leader by a radical leftist with a knife and five months later a Google News search for his name yields two hits and a Bing News search gets you six hits. And most of those hits are people asking why the MSM didn’t give it the attention given the attempted assassination using a gun.

We didn’t even have knife control groups demanding new laws. You would think that at least the Violence Policy Center would be interested in “knife violence” since there name is more generic and not specific to firearms. Yet, a search of their website yields zero hits.

Why was it that the MSM and the “violence prevention” groups were so silent in the attempted assassination of a state Governor with a knife? Is it because no one died? Or maybe it was because there was only one victim. Could it be because the attacker was someone with clearly leftist views instead of someone (wrongly) suspected of being associated with the right? Or was it because it was a knife instead of a gun?

  1. you already know because you’ve seen it before,
    they want your gun first, then they’ll worry about knives

  2. Where are the knife control groups?

    Mainly in European countries where they have banned or severely restricted firearms ownership… Some even restrict cricket bat ownership…

  3. I would say the Brady Campaign and the Joyce foundation ARE the Knife-Control groups. But as Pop N Fresh said, they’re incremental organizations. Obviously they ARE gun ban organizations, but right now they are simply working on rights restrictions, and limiting the diversity of guns civilians can own. But we all know that if the McCarthy Magazine ban is passed, an addendum will be passed next that outlaws possession of magazines over 10. But why 10, why not 6 or 8? (6-8 are the most common revolver capacities which would be difficult to restrict) after that handgun ban, then rifles, then everything. Once we only have rim-fire rifles then they’ll take our knives.

  4. “….And then when they came for the cricket-bat owners, there was no-one left to defend me….”

    H’mmm, it seems so familiar.
