    Then move on to banning plastic utensils. People should eat food with the fingers God gave them.

    Changing the weapons reduces the damage. That's something that can be done right now that will save lives. Stopping psychopaths in the first place will still take years if not decades and possibly centuries.

    Would you rather be hacked to death with a butcher knife or shot with a gun?

    I would rather a psychopath intent on killing people at their school or some other public venue bring a knife than a gun.

    Is there any particular reason you left out being bludgeoned to death with a baseball bat?

    I'm always still in trouble again

    And I would rather the people at schools and other public venues have the means to defend themselves from a psychopath intent on killing them whether he's armed with a knife or a gun. "Gun free" zones should be outlawed.

    Answer the question. Which way would you rather be murdered? Shot to death or slashed to death by a knife? Which weapon causes more damage and pain? It seems that is all you care about, the amount of damage.

    Ex-Calif. State Sen. Leland Yee (D), gun control champion, heading to prison for weapons trafficking

    ...Yee also discussed buying weapons overseas and bringing them to the U.S. with two associates and an undercover agent. He accepted $6,800 and a list of arms for purchase in the Philippines.

    The maneuvers were not only illegal, but also in stark contrast to what he had long purported to stand for.

    Yee told CBS two years before he was arrested: “It is extremely important that individuals in the state of California do not own assault weapons. I mean that is just so crystal clear — there is no debate, no discussion.”

    As a legislator, Yee supported strict gun control laws and was named to the Brady Campaign’s Gun Violence Prevention Honor Roll.
