Comments on: Let’s Ban Everything Pointy To Reduce Deaths Entering a Time of Natural Health, Elevated Consciousness, Sustainable Living and Total Freedom.

This is why everyone should have the ability and means to protect themselves.

By: Joe E. Tue, 01 Jan 2013 10:43:07 +0000 you have NO IDEA what you’re talking about. Police officers can’t afford to be injured any more than you and I can afford it. In other words, if you were confronted by someone wishing to attack you, you would do whatever it takes to defend yourself. A Law Enforcement Officer can’t afford to get beaten up every day, he does the job day in and day out. You can imagine how much it would cost to be constantly replacing injured or killed officers.

And what about hose who can’t be reasoned with? Do you really think you can talk a guy out of doing violence, if he’s running on a chemical cocktail of adrenaline and hormones, or drugged up, or just plain socio- or psycho-pathic, and out of control?

Your argument makes sense if the only thing officers had to worry about were calm and cooperative individuals, like you or I. But that isn’t reality.

The reality is, when someone who can’t be reasoned with and can’t feel pain comes at you, you do whatever it takes to get out of there safely. Officers try to do as little damage as possible, but they shouldn’t have to put their own lives in jeopardy just to be politically correct.

Read “Meditations on Violence.” If that doesn’t convince you that the TRULY dangerous are NOTHING like you and I, then I really have no other advice to offer you.

I do have a question, though…

Are you a Law Enforcement Officer?

And by the way… A tape recording doesn’t mean anything to someone who’s on the verge of a psychotic break.

Respectfully Submitted.

So, why’d they start carrying guns? (Why do people wear insect repellent? It’s not as though they’re being bitten.)

And what do you do if YOU encounter a scary situation? Immediately call a cop. Who in turn, you say, will call SWAT.

But then some may say that SWAT never gets attacked so why do they need guns? And what if they shoot the wrong guy, or someone takes their guns away from them?

So they will have to disarm, and be given a special radio to call Super SWAT, who can call Supercalifragelistic SWAT…

Hey, save yourself a pantload of tax dollars, buy a gun and some bullets and learn how to safely carry and use them. Or would that be too logical?

Of course that simply lead to French nobles making more effective use of daggers and boot knives. When I lived in the the UK back in the early 90s, the preferred method of murder was bludgeoning. You can’t legislate behavior.

By: Alessia Sun, 30 Dec 2012 21:01:11 +0000 This has nothing to do with reducing stabbings or protecting civilians. It’s all about making the populace defenseless in the coming civil war which TPTB expect to begin following the expected global financial collapse.

By: Italics Mine Sun, 30 Dec 2012 19:52:37 +0000 And not just pointy things. A person could be hurt with a beer bottle, a saucer, a book, or even an apple None of us will be safe until government proves that they care and ban EVERYTHING!

By: Steven Sun, 30 Dec 2012 15:18:48 +0000 After guns and knives what is next? Tools, forks, picks, shovels, sticks and stones? The elites and their fellow travellers have lost it and are unfit to rule! Reclaim your god given freedom people.

By: Eileen Kuch Sun, 30 Dec 2012 05:45:46 +0000 Great idea, David. Net guns would definitely be most practical in situations where protests get out of hand. These devices eject a net wide enough to trap a handful of people; and, better yet, cause no injuries to either violent protesters or police officers.

I’ve seen these net guns used in training exercises; and, they’re the best tools for catching criminals as well as controlling violent protests or riots.
