An amusing perspective on gun control:
Columnist Molly Ivins has said:
"I am not anti-gun, I'm pro-knife. ... Consider the merits of the knife. In the first place, you have to catch up with someone in order to stab him. A general substitution of knives for guns would promote physical fitness. We'd turn into a whole nation of great runners. Plus, knives don't ricochet. And people are seldom killed while cleaning their knives."
