I think I'd rather just be shot then beat to death with a hammer. A friends brother ran a curb market and was killed by a hammer attack by a robber. The store owner was hit numerous times in the head. The robber has never been caught. Is there justice over evil....?

Hope the new legislation comes through. Lowe's, Home Depot, Menards and other retailers selling these deadly hammers will have to do background checks and have a mandatory one week waiting period for the sale of a hammer.
There are all kinds of hammers. Tack hammer all the way up to the big boys.....the Sledge hammer! There are even the extremely deadly air powered hammers that may require a Class III license. Nobody needs one of these, they are just too dangerous to own.
