| by Michael Allen

On his radio show last week, MSNBC host and activist Rev. Al Sharpton called for gun control and appeared to be advocating knife control as well (audio below), reports Mediaite.com.

During his radio show, Rev. Sharpton said: “In any civilized society you do not see massacres continue to happen, from Tucson to Aurora to Columbine to Virginia Tech to where we are now in Newtown to Chicago and you keep the same laws when clearly they’re not working.”

He was then asked by a caller: “What happens when the criminal goes to knives, Al?”

Rev. Sharpton answered: “Then you deal with knives. The same thing as if you have a head cold and the same thing you do if you have a head cold and the cold is gone and you have a headache. Then you take headache medicine. The job of society is to deal with whatever problem confronts it.”
