As any good card-carrying liberal knows, gun control is a panacea to violent crime. Or is it? This just in from Boston:

Police say they are seeing a surge in the number of gang-related attacks involving machetes, the huge knives that are a ubiquitous tool in rural Latin America, with blades as thick as an axe and nearly as long as a sword.

The troubling trend has led some departments to crack down on machetes, and not just in urban areas. Some suburban communities have also enacted new laws to ban the knives.

Somewhere, Rosie O’Donnell is planning a comeback. I smell another Million Mom March for Machete Control any day now.
