This is a great blog with no-nonsense posts that short and sweet and to the point. Not enough pictures or silly commentary though, so I'll add that.

Oakland to ban hammers, wrenches, tripods, walking canes, shields and other 'tools of vandalism' in bizarre Orwellian disarmament push

(NaturalNews) Forget "gun control." That's old news. The city of Oakland, California now wants to ban any object that could be used as a "tool of vandalism," including hammers, wrenches, slingshots, shields and presumably anything else with a blunt edge such as garden rakes or sticks. It's all part of Oakland's response to recent protests in which angry mobs of people caused significant damage to local businesses (because angry mobs tend to loot and burn their own neighborhoods first). So the Oakland City Council is considering a proposed ordinance that would criminalize the possession of everyday objects, including objects of professional tradesmen such as hammers, large screwdrivers, walking canes and mechanic's tools. The city claims these objects will be illegal to possess during a "protest," but a protest can be defined as any two people standing around, or walking down a street, or even just talking loudly. There is no official definition of a "protest," meaning the police can invoke the ordinance any time they wish. That's how these laws always go: they get interpreted and deployed far beyond their original intent. Learn more: http://www.naturalnews.com/041399_Oakland_hammers_weapons_ban.html#ixzz2aqOmtIbV


What?  We can’t have rakes?  What about pitchforks and torches?  Fools!  Don’t they realize that these implements are the public’s weapons of choice against Frankenstein’s monster and other hideous creatures?  I guess not.  After all, they don’t realize that guns are our best defense against the hideous monsters that threaten our safety and well-being everyday.
