Where’s The Outrage Over Knives

To The Reader’s Forum:

In yesterday’s local news media it was reported that four choir members were stabbed in an Albequerque, N.M., church, an 8-year-old girl was stabbed to death in California and two peaple were stabbed to death in Tionesta, Pa.

The F.B.I. reported that in 2011 nearly five times as many peaple were murdered with knives as were murdered with firearms.

Where is the outrage? Why isn’t the liberal news media and liberals like Senator Feinstein calling for limits on the length of knife blades or registration of knives and background checks prior to purchasing a knife?

Bottom line is it isn’t the firearm or the knife. It is the person controlling it. If gun controls worked Chicago would be a safe city. Criminals won’t limit their magazines to 7 rounds or register their weapons before using them. These new laws will have no affect except make it harder for law abiding citizens to enjoy their second amendment rights.
