According to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, New York City’s tough gun laws has resulted in an increase in stabbings; and apparently that is a good thing. The violent crime rate may be going up, but fewer people are getting shot. This is a victory for gun control. Just don’t tell that to families of the victims of these stabbings.
Police Officer: “Ms. Smith, we have good news and bad news about your husband. Which do you want first?”
Ms. Smith: “The bad news first.”
Police Officer: “Your husband was killed this morning on the subway during his commute.”
Ms. Smith: “Oh my god! Then what’s the good news?”
Police Officer: “He wasn’t the victim of gun violence.”
Now I might be a pessimist, my wife tells me that I am, but personally… if I find my self shitting into a bag through a hole in my side because a piece of metal has pierced my guts, I really don’t care if it was a bullet or steak knife that did it.
