What's Happening In Your World
by Yvette Carnell To demonstrate the absurdity of the gun control argument, you need look no further than Rev. Al Sharpton, who says that once we’re done with gun control, we may have to deal with knife control. That argument is to the left what the NRA’s argument of,   ‘let’s put a gun in every school’,  is to the right. During his radio show last week, Sharpton said,  “In any civilized society you do not see massacres continue to happen, from Tucson to Aurora to Columbine to Virginia Tech to where we are now in Newtown to Chicago and you keep the same laws when clearly they’re not working.” That makes sense. What doesn’t make sense is the answer Sharpton gave to a caller who asked,  “What happens when the criminal goes to knives, Al?” “ Then you deal with knives,” Sharpton pointedly replied. “The same thing as if you have a head cold and the same thing you do if you have a head cold and the cold is gone and you have a headache. Then you take headache medicine. The job of society is to deal with whatever problem confronts it .” What is bothersome about this argument is the assumption that you can deal with society’s problem solely through legislation. Legislation is a part of it, and I’m all in favor of sensible gun control laws, but there is a societal, maybe even a cultural problem, in America. You’d think that a Reverend would be able to get to the crux of this deficit, but based on Sharpton’s comments, that doesn’t seem likely.

  1. Mr Sharpton needs to know, how about we deal with the 20 MILLION ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS in this country costing TAXPAYERS about a TRILLION dollars and competes with AFRICAN AMERICANS/ BLACKS for jobs. The excuse many employers use now for not having to hire blacks is that they only have to hire a minority, so guess who’s on the bottom? Check out NumbersUsa website and. watch the Gumball video, you will be amazed!!

  2. Sharpton has lost his mind!!! I don’t know what his ideal world is, but knife control. A completely disarmed society is ripe for exploitation of slavery. Does he understand that the right to bear arms for the protection of citizens against enemies foreign and domestic. Does he not remember what kept blacks enslaved? Blacks didn’t work for free because they loved it, NO,it was a dynamic exploitation of human labor by violent reinforcement with weapons….HELLO…SOMEONE HAS TOO MUCH TRUST IN THE GOOD OF MAN AND GOV’T. The corruption and perversion of authority and abuse of privilege has always been reinforced with the use of superior weaponry against the defensless. Sharpton can MARCH THIS ONE ALONE!!! I’M ON MY FRONT PORCH WITH MY BUTCHER KNIFE AND WHAT’S LEFT OF LEGAL FIREARMS AS AN ABLE, AND MENTALLY SOUND CITIZEN WITH GOD GIVEN RIGHTS TO BE ON THIS EARTH!!!
