Today marks a very exciting day as we launch the new and improved Pundit Press. We have joined forces with High Plains Pundit to design a new website to provide our readers with even more news and information.

Here is the link that will direct you to the new Pundit Press website: http://thepunditpress.com/

This new partnership will also include all 3 of Danny R. Butcher's (aka High Plains Pundit) internet radio shows, Nightly Review, The Danny R. Butcher Show, and Sunday Night Sports Talk.

A special thank you to all of the Pundit Press readers out there for your continued support. We are very excited about what the future holds for Pundit Press, and we hope that you continue with us on this journey.

Florida Man Stabbed to Death with Pen; Is it Time For Pen-Control?

Unfortunately, sometimes it takes a tragic event to put some things into perspective. Last month Gregory Hypollite of Florida was killed by two teens. Their weapon of choice? A pen.

Mr. Hypollite, a father, had introduced Juan Xolo and Jose Carlos Llano to a prostitute. When he demanded payment for the introduction, and Xolo and Llano revealed they had little money, a scuffle ensued and Hypollite was killed.

Using the logic of those on the left, I believe it is now time to call for national pen-regulation. To put it frankly, a ballpoint writing utensil is nothing short of a deadly weapon.
The bloodshed needs to stop
Sadly, pen-related deaths are nothing new. In 2008, a young boy was murdered by a pen and, according to a recent survey, 100 people die by choking on pens annually. In 2007, for example, an English youth died by putting a pen cap in his mouth.

The madness needs to stop. Anyone can wander into a supermarket or Walmart and buy these ink-spewing killing machines. Based on the President's recent proposal for gun control, it put forward these ideas:

1. A national database for all pen owners in these United States.
2. Full background checks for all pen purchasers.
3. Strict pen control; no one will be allowed to own pens with the unusual colors of purple, pink, or orange.

(Just to make certain you understand, I am not serious about these proposals, though the deaths in question are tragically true. However, I feel it gives us a little perspective on gun control in our nation).
