When do we get knowledge in using a BIC pen as a weapon choice?

What good would that knowledge do. The first thing that would have to happen is the BACKGROUND CHECK. The next thing is you would have to take a pen safety course. The next thing licensed to carry and if concealed? Well that will be a whole other set of requirements. Then you will have to secure that attack pen, So we would then have congressional PEN CONTROL....Oh and then they would say..."We are not trying to take your pens away"...We're just all about pen safety.

After all if just one life can be saved....cause someone might go crazy and use their pen to kill innocents....or worse yet wind up with an unauthorized ink spot...But wait, that would then require psychological analysis from a trained professional.

I touched on this yesterday but it's worth mentioning again. Recently, Colorado Democrat Jessie Uliberri argued people should defend themselves against a madman shooter with.... ballpoint pens.

Two things wrong with this. The first being that Uliberri argues people should waiting until a crazy person reloads before taking action, or in other words, wait until they are done shooting people. The use of a firearm for defense in this case wouldn't require a waiting period but rather would stop a madman from continuing his rampage. The second, ballpoint pens?...
