    Calling for a ban !

    I am thinking of a petition to ban the evil assault Christmas Trees

    FoxNews.com

    PARRISH, Fla. Authorities say a west Florida man who lives with his parents has been arrested on a felony assault charge after he used a Christmas tree as a weapon to attack his father.

    According to the Manatee County sheriff's report, 37-year-old Thomas Edward Lackie was arrested last week after he threw a 3-foot Christmas tree at his father. The tree missed, but Lackie then tried to use the steel base from the tree to strike his father.

    His father and mother were able to grab Lackie's arms to prevent the attack. Deputies say the tree could have caused serious injuries because the metal base weighs about five pounds.

    Lackie was charged with felony assault. He denied trying to strike his father.

    We just can't have these dangerous weapons accessible to small children (37, lol) without an approved safety lock.

    I recommend forming a coalition to allow only child safe Christmas trees be sold in this country. We need to fix this, folks. End the senseless violence.

    I guess a Christmas tree could be used as a weapon.....it all depends on where it is stuck.....and how deep.

    When Christmas trees are outlawed only outlaws will have Christmas trees.

    What about an artificial tree?.....Would that be like an 'undetectable' plastic Glock?

    If you get mugged at tree point is a lighter a good form of defense?

    I suppose the Festivus pole will be banned as an ugly assault weapon next.
