adder1: As a blacksmith, this is (yet another) reason I'm glad I'm not in NYC.


I believe the correct term is African-American smith.

The real problem is semiautomatic assault hammers. All it takes is one arm swing. These things are built with precision so you can put brads through a door frame with one good swing. They have a tactical grip for easy swinging. I've seen some guys fire 6, 7 nails into a shingle before you could get down a ladder.

Don't even get me started with assault mallets. You can get some that are made from all wood or rubber and wood so they go through a metal detector.

I'm hoping that eventually the gangs will run out of things to use as weapons and will be forced to learn kung fu to carry out violence. Then we'll have rival gangs dueling with kung fu. I'm okay with that

If it wasn't for those radicals in the NHA, we would have had reasonable hammer control laws in place years ago and this sort of things couldn't happen.  As far as I'm concerned, the NHA is a bunch of domestic terrorists who only want hammers as compensation for their small dicks.

Brings back memories of Union enforcers, don't it? Maybe the carpenter's union has gone rogue.

In other news, Mayor Michael Bloomberg has announced that he plans to ban everything and everyone in New York City. Says the Mayor: "It's apparent that since it's people doing anything at all that seem to cause the most problems for other people, the only solution is to completely evacuate the city. Last one to leave please turn the lights out. That is all," before he retired to his heavily-fortified compound in Connecticut to enjoy a bonfire of aborted fetuses, Bibles and hundred-dollar bills...

master_dman: DROxINxTHExWIND: Otto_E_Rodika: Problem: Gangs of African-American youths roam the streets attacking people with hammers.
Solution: Ban hammers.

/frickin' genius

So, they should ban blacks? I'm not following your reasoning. I'm sure the African-American residents are just as disturbed about it as you are.

Really?  I'm sure the black residents in the area are chalking it up as a "win" against the horrible honkey oppressors.



No one thinks your broke ass is oppresing them. Settle down.
