I’m beginning to think the residents of New York deserve every bit of stupid heaped on them by their drooling nimrod politicians. After all, they do keep electing these monkeys into office!
The latest bit of stupid comes from New York state senator Tony Avella, who has decided that New York needs to ban machetes.
No, I’m not kidding. Get a load at this tool.
He’s perfectly serious. Apparently machete crimes are now a problem in the Empire State. And under the proposed legislation, one could get a year in the pokey for merely possessing this gardening tool.
Smaller knives such as switchblades and gravity knives are already banned and listed as deadly weapons under state law, but machetes are considered the same as butcher knives.
New Yorkers carrying those knives can be ticketed for a blade longer than 4 inches, an administrative code violation. They face up to 15 days in jail and a $300 fine.
“They’re DAAAAAAAAAAAAANGEEEEEEEEROOOOOUUUUUUSSS,” he simpers!
“The fact that anyone can easily purchase this potentially lethal tool is just crazy,” he said.
And anything dangerous is bad for you, and therefore must be banned.
And maybe we should mandate that every citizen leave the house only when wrapped in a copious amount of styrofoam. And maybe bubble wrap.
Tyranny starts with stupid. I’m convinced of it.
So until New Yorkers get educated and start exhibiting some independent thought and intestinal fortitude when dealing with their own lives, perhaps they deserve these types of lunatics as legislators.
