    Hammer Time?

    Local news article about bad guys using a hammer as weapon for robbery. I bet they didn't have a permit either.

    We need to outlaw all hammers. That's the answer to prevent this crime.

    Probably one of the awesome pre-ban hammers too - the ones with the illegal claw!

    Seriously tho - as we well know - almost any darned thing can be pressed into weapon service! I reckon screwdrivers and chisels are well up there for potential!

    Hammers Are OK

    Unless they are painted all black & have a detachable handle.

    I used to work for the railroad in PA and all of us repair guys carried big ball pein hammers in rings on our belts, like riot batons. Nobody gave them a glance but we all knew they were some big weapons if needed.
    I never did try carrying a framing hammer - figured the claws would get me arrested.
    Is it Japan or Great Britain that's trying to ban pointed knives? With all this going on, I am in great fear that somebody's going to ban the scoop I use for picking up dog poop.....

    You can even get them with built in silencers - no federal license required:

    When hammers are outlawed, only outlaws will have hammers.

    Absolutely!! Only in camo, with a scope, tac light and the high-cap mags. Probably want to put a sling on it too. Maybe a muzzle brake too........

    Carpenter

    The only time I have ever even been near using deadly force was when my father-in-law fired a jack-leg carpenter who tried to get tough with an old man. He was walking up the driveway toward us with a hammer in hand. I had 911 dialed on the cell phone in my left hand, but told him that by the time the cops got there he would be dead. He looked at the M1911A1 in the holster under my jacket with my right hand on it and turned around and left (a whole lot faster than he came).
