Why Not Ban Baseball Bats And Tire Irons, Too?

Say a prayer for this man who was savagely attacked outside a New York pizza parlor. Among his injuries – inflicted by thugs with a baseball bat and tire iron – is a fractured skull.

Since the president, vice president, and other government-knows-better-than-you-do Nanny-Staters believe that objects, not people, are responsible for violence, I’m just wondering why there shouldn’t be calls to ban bats and tire irons.

Don’t laugh. History shows that when you give government an inch of power, its enablers will push for a mile, as we are seeing right now.
