For those who argue that the gun grabbers will stop when they get all the firearms, think again. They are trying toin Tacoma. That’s right — swords!
For more than a year now, Tacoma city officials have quietly struggled to find a way to regulate the sale of ancient weapons.
Swords. Throwing stars. Daggers. Knives. Crossbows.
Medieval stuff that freaks out average law-abiding citizen-types when they see it for sale at the corner store alongside candy bars and gum.
So far, the attempt has produced little in the way of results. Stanching the sale of drug paraphernalia proved easier.
The challenge for the city’s lawyers is figuring out how to update Tacoma’s “dangerous weapons” ordinance to stop a convenience store from selling a giant collectible sword, but not also make it illegal for Fred Meyer to sell a bread knife.
What’s the next thing to outlaw, Bic lighters or nail clippers? I forgot, TSA has already started that process for both.
