In Atlanta, just couple of months ago, some ninja jumped off the asphalt out of nowhere and proceeded to climb atop a woman’s car vehicle’s hood and smash it with his feet—for no reason:
Keep that fool out of the state of Texas, because the Longhorn state will certainly have its work cut out for ‘em.
They say in Texas everything is big and somewhere in (trying?) to keeping this notion true, lawmakers have rolled out 20+ laws ranging from essential to downright silly.
To my knowledge (of having not actually researched this statement as fact) although no ‘official’ statistics have come out showing how many random acts of (gun) violence there were since guns were made legal; from what we have seen, random, impulsive and senseless acts of gun violence (with no defensive basis) is commonplace, news information on a daily basis.
Whether or not statistics are out there on the then versus now (since CCW’s are legal to carry public), like with anything, if it’s not publicized, it’s just a secret: well-kept, ill, or well-intentioned or otherwise, but I do know that if publishing news like such was publicized (as it should be), the NRA and gun-toting advocates would have a conniption fit and question the validity, value and vicinities in ways that would surely wear the researchers down to not even bothering with it. Opposite that, people with fame disease would certainly put their guns to use to make the news of frequent reporting of studies. It’s a double-edge sword.
Still, with being that said (other than shock value) I could see no sensible reason whatsoever to make it legal to carry a Machete. But big-hat Texas is making it legal for the big knife to go toe-to-toe with the big gun.
Don’t get it twisted, people do use ‘em… and the only times we’ve reported them as being used was in public at random and causing harm
I say this. Unfortunately, many of us cannot even handle having a keyboard in our hands-and access to world attention-much less a gun.
Why in the achthe-e-double-hockeystick do we need to be out in public brushing hips with Machete-carrying ninjas, now?
The conspiracy theorist (that I’m not), would logically conclude that the only people who have to worry about being test-monkied by these kinds of laws are the same people who are forced to live with, and around [the improperly cared for] mentally ill, and stressed people and situations in which the results and negatives from these kinds of laws and freedoms (will and do) occur.
On the flip side, I look being legally able to carry a Machete as that marker for “crazy” that we all dream of being able to see (that people can often hide behind a sound exterior).
Because unless you’re walking around in a fencing suit (on route to practice), no sane person is walking the streets (right now) with a Machete.
So let that be your compass for the scarlet letter of ‘crazy’ and just be done with it. LoL.
It’s actually more transparent than the hidden gun hiding on or with the ‘crazy.’
