More MSM Ignorance on the Sikhs

LawDog mentions it, and so does Grim.  But LawDog goes the entire distance.

...One of the tenets of the Sikh religion is that adherents must carry on their person a knife, called a Kirpan. The Kirpan is a reminder that the carrier should have the courage to defend all those who are persecuted or oppressed.

In our enlightened, politically-correct times, however, this has caused some problems. The blade -- traditionally between six inches and three feet in length -- seems to be "intimidating" in the Age of the Common Man, and thus has been variously legally required to be "less than four inches", or blunted, or even sealed inside of its scabbard with glue.

I mention this because initial reports state that when Evil presented itself in his place of peace and began to slaughter those of his flock, 65-year-old Satwant Singh Kaleka did his level best to punch the ticket of the decades-younger murderer with what the Media has described as a "butter knife" -- a blunted blade, less than four inches in length.

Some Media reports indicate that there was a "trail of blood" from the spot where Satwant Singh Kaleka did his last duty as a Sikh and as a man; others do not mention it.

For myself, I choose to believe that Satwant Singh Kaleka went to his God with a smile on his lips and a bloody Kirpan in his hand.

No greater love than this:  that a man lay down his life for his friend.

Yes.  ALL self-defense weapons would be banned by the Left-o-Bozos, leaving us with 'butter knives.'

We now know how that worked out, eh?

Too bad CC did nothing in this instance to prevent yet another small penis/gun lover from exercising his 2A rites. So much for the canard that CCers are going to protect society in general from senseless acts by packing heat where'er they go.

Sure...we know how THAT worked out, eh?

Are you saying an absence of CC would have prevented the incident?

He doesn't know WHAT he means, Anony2. It's hard to be meaningful when one is inchoate.
