    Gun control advocates aren’t demanding background checks for hatchets like they do for guns even though a man attacked his family with a hatchet in a movie theater.

    So far there’s been no nationwide call for “hatchet control” after the man, 29-year-old Vincente Montano, swung a hatchet at his family during a theater screening of Mad Max: Fury Road in Antioch, Tenn., Wednesday night.

    “This guy, this shady looking guy, stood up with like two bags and walked to the back of the theater and he pulled out a hatchet and started attacking this family,” the 911 caller told police. “And then he pulled out a [pellet] gun and we all ran out of the theater.”

    Police shot and killed Montano, who was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, as he attempted to flee the theater.

    Despite the attack and Montano’s mental condition, gun control advocates have been noticeably silent when it comes to demanding background checks for hatchets like they do for guns after a mass shooting.

    In fact, many of them are actually demanding more gun control in response to the hatchet attack, even though the unarmed theater-goers were completely defenseless against the schizophrenic who could have chopped them up.
