What would McCain consider as next step in “curbing violence?”
As John McCain aims to restrict Second Amendment rights in the wake of the Newtown shooting tragedy, the Obama regime is buying up billions of rounds of bullets, to guard against law abiding citizens being able to possess firearms that function.
Yet the most recent attack that seriously wounded at least 14 people — two remain in critical condition — was carried out by a knife wielding perpetrator.
The brutal stabbing occurred on the Lone Star Community College campus in Cypress, Texas. Many of the victims were stabbed in the face and neck. The assailant used a razor type knife and told authorities he had fantasized since childhood about stabbing people to death.
Will this vicious act signal the implementation of registration and restriction of knives? Will department stores be required to perform cursory mental health evaluations before knives could be purchased? Some reports indicated the slasher used a box-cutter or “exacto” knife. Could the burden for checking purchasers fall on the orange-aproned Home Depot clerks? Who will monitor on-line purchases of cutlery sets?
This past weekend in Goodyear, Arizona, a 64-year-old man — a constituent of Sen. John McCain’s — savagely attacked and fatally stabbed his wife and grown son in their home. In the heavily publicized Jodi Arias murder trial taking place in McCain’s home state –just 7 miles from his palatial high-rise condo, one of the weapons she used to kill Travis Alexander was — you guessed it: A knife.
In a joint appearance with Chuck Schumer on Face the Nation, McCain — echoing Obama’s press secretary Jay Carney — told Bob Schieffer that he didn’t understand why some Republicans want to filibuster the gun control bill being pushed by Harry Reid, Schumer, and Obama. The loopy, Democrat colluder, McCain believes Harry Reid’s pledge to Republicans that they can offer amendments. Reid also has a bridge to sell.
