It would no longer be a crime to carry a switchblade, or to carry a concealed knife without a permit, under a bill approved Tuesday by the Assembly’s Public Safety Committee.
Rep. Evan Goyke of Milwaukee said the bill treats all knives equally.
“You and I could put whatever knife we want in our pocket or we could just carry it in our hand, and that would not be a crime,” he said.
I get the gun stuff, because NRA and NRA money. But who exactly is Big Knife, that was worried about Knife Rights?
Walworth County Republican Rep. Cody Horlacher said the bill will ensure that people who carry knives for self-defense won’t be charged with carrying an illegal weapon.
“Maybe somebody doesn’t want to carry a gun for one reason or another, but they’re OK with a knife. And I think that those individuals that want that sort of security or feeling of security should be able to have that,” said Horlacher.
What are we defending ourselves against with a knife? An out-of-control cheese plate?
And according to these asswipes everybody should be okay with a gun — including 4-year-olds — unless they’re some kind of America-hating pussy. Plus, second amendment! Which amendment guarantees my right to a switchblade? Is this some minor unintended consequence of no longer quartering soldiers in our homes or what the hell?
