This is why you don't give an inch on your right to self-defense. It is NEVER enough. First, ban scary guns, then less scary guns, then semi-automatic pistols, then revolvers, then bolt action rifles, then single shot shotguns, then on to freekin pointed kitchen knives! Yes, no kidding.

Why the hell don't they just make everyone where big pillows on their hands?

Don't ever give an inch on any schemes to ban or limit YOUR rights to possess and use self defense tools. The criminals will ALWAYS have them, why the hell would you ever choose to be victims?

Really, if these people cared about "Lives Saved" then tobacco would have been illegal decades ago. It is all about turning you into defenseless, scared peasants who beg their lords for protection.

A ban on the sale of pointed kitchen knives has been demanded by the Church of England as it says there is no reason for them in the modern world.

In a letter to ministers backed by a judge, top trauma doctors and psychiatrists, police and victims, Church of England bishops say re-designing domestic knives to give them rounded ends would combat knife crime by making “life-threatening” injuries “far less likely.”



This is just a recent call for banning kitchen knives. Politicians have already been proposing this for awhile. Here is a similar call to disarm your kitchens from last year.

British Politicians Declare War on Knives
Having failed to thwart crime with gun bans, British officials now want to restrict what may be the most useful tool ever invented.

It turns out that when you pass laws disarming people in an attempt to prevent violence, criminals who habitually disregard all laws don't make exceptions for the new rules. In London, crime still thrives despite the U.K.'s tight gun controls and the British political class is now desperately turning its attention to restricting knives.

Rather than a race to ban dangerous objects that can only end with the criminalization of rocks and pointed sticks, it's time politicians stopped pushing laws that are ignored by criminals and annoying and inconvenient to the rest of us.

The cry of the weak and the gutless: “ban it”

I don’t use it “ban it”
I don’t agree with it “ban it” “outlaw it” “suppress it” “tax it”
I’m scared “restrict it”
I’m offended “ban it”
His viewpoint is different than the hivemind’s “ban him”

“Banning things is progress”

That said, will they ban acid to curb the old acid-in-the-face ruse? Or would that disadvantage a certain group?

stop the world - i want to get off

FFS - these idiots dont live in the real world - do they ???

starting with - " a whole fish " - there are serveral culinary preparation tasks that require the pointy end of a knife

the fact that these people - either do not know this - or are so dishonest that they simply " ignore it " - i is not sure which is morte comteptible

PS - multiple annecdotes from people at the sharp end < pun > of the problem - indicates that sharpened bycicle wheel spokes are now a " knife subsitute " amonsgst some elemets

whats the church going to do about that ?

Bathrooms must be banned!

235,000 people over age 15 visit emergency rooms because of injuries suffered in the bathroom

An American drowns nearly every day in a bathtub

in 2014 for children 0 to 4 years old. For that group, 73 died in a bathtub and 29 were killed by guns

If not the bathroom - all bathtubs must be confiscated - laws must be passed to ban anyone from purchasing a bathtub

ALSO BAN AUTOMOBILES!!!! Cars kill!!!

over 37,000 people die each year in the US because of reckless drivers

humans can not be trusted with a 3000 lb killing machine!

cars must be confiscated from the untrustworthy, people must have deep background checks before being given a drivers license, no one taking any medication for any mental illness should be allowed to drive

Reinstate the death penalty nation wide. Make murder not worth it, the consequence too severe.

Oh... Christ...

Schools are way too dangerous with all those pointed SHARPENED pencils. We must ban them, go back to crayons, from pre-k to university. But wait, all those colors... Someone is sure to be offended by a certain shade of red, it's obviously a right wing color, thus making it racist... Okay, no colors.. Too touchy. But only black crayons... Wait... Black? No that won't work, too inclusive you would have to have a corresponding color for every race.... But.... What if someone tries to eat it (highly likely) and chokes....and all that paper on the outside, think of the environmental impact! Okay I got it, we need to ban schools... Keep everyone dumb.. Then they will be okay with this horse bologna theyre serving up.

The only thing I will say is they don’t have the same protections that we do here in the States when it comes to the the Bill of Rights our Founding Fathers got it right.

The reason to have them is for cutting vegetables? Is this a trick question?

Studies have shown the death penalty doesn't deter psychopaths from being psychotic.

Guns don't kill innocent people. Psychopaths kill innocent people.

However, you would think our well regulated militia would have federal regulations limiting the rate of fire and size of clips with regards to projectile weapons.
