Seriously? Al Sharpton is a buffoon...
Via Radio Equalizer:
REV AL SHARPTON (28 Dec 2012): 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.
ROSCOE IN MARYLAND: What happens when the criminal goes to knives Al?
REV AL SHARPTON: Then you deal with knives.
ROSCOE IN MARYLAND: Oh I see.
REV AL SHARPTON: 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.
