I thought this was a joke but apparently Bloomberg thinks nobody needs a 8 inch kitchen knife other than chefs. This is all due to 4 murders that took place in New York and the weapon used was a kitchen knife. Do any of you agree that a background check should be imposed on people who need a 8 inch or longer kitchen knife to cut up a Thanksgiving turkey, ham or brisket? LMAO!!



Bloomberg Calls For Kitchen-Knife Law Reform | Field & Stream

Mayor Bloomberg statement:

“This tragic event demands that America inject some sanity, some kind of reasonable controls, into its kitchen-knife laws. No one but a professional chef needs an 8-inch kitchen knife. No one but a professional chef needs an entire collection of kitchen knives. Why was this person, who had a criminal record, able to buy kitchen knives with no sort of background check? Because anyone can walk into a hardware or kitchen-supply store and buy any knife they want as easily as they can buy a blender or a colander.

“Unlike guns, knives do not have to be reloaded, which increases their lethal potential. They are easily concealable and quiet. No civilian should have access to weapons this deadly. Kitchen-knife dealers should be required to conduct background checks and report multiple sales. It is time to stand up to the kitchen-knife lobby. I call upon my fellow mayors to join me in the effort to place reasonable controls upon kitchen knives and end this madness.”

New Yorkers are all talk. They proclaim they are real and tough, but you'll never meet a people more beholden to big government and unindependent . I grew up their I know. 40,000 phone calls per hour to 911 during the Hurricane .just from NYC.Sad... They want somebody to come rescue them. They like being told what to do!

Seeing as how this article was from 2/11 and nobody has banned kitchen knives can we assume it means very little?

It's the fact that the fool even suggested such a preposterous proposal.

I was out in the Hamptons last month and Mayor Bloomberg daughter was out walking around downtown Southampton with a bodyguard. Im sure he wasnt armed though since her father hates guns!

What a bunch of jerks! Who would ever call 911 during a huge emergency like a hurricaine...

They should have manned up and stopped that massive storm surge and brought the power back on in their neighborhoods through their own sense of self-determination.
