Well, then why not ban ALL knives? I mean, can't you Brits see the danger in allowing anyone to have a kitchen knife? The kids might steal it and
go on a rampage, right? If all knives and sharp instruments were made illegal, then the people who want to stab someone would use a pencil, or fashion
their own knives and stabbing weapons from metal..or they would use a pencil shapened really well, right? Why not ban pencils, after all, they can be
sued to stab as well, right?
Then, we can ban anything that some jerk could use to fashion a knife from..all metals and hard plastics should be banned as well, correct? Get a
grip Brits: An armed society is a polite society. If all Brits carried a pistol, a lot of crimes would be stopped by the people when they
happened...now if something happens, you have to wait until a cop arrives, who will no doubt react wrongly and arrest the wrong person anyway!!
You cannot ban all items that can be made into a weapon...it cannot happen. So banning certain types of knives and swords is stupid, totally stupid.
How many kids were carrying huge samurai swords around anyway? It could not possible be a huge issue; it is just one more example of CONTROL of the
people. The cop's in the UK are treated like God's now as it is....next they will be able to place people directly into prison and avoid all the
hassles of a trrial...will that make you safer?
The UK is GONE: Cameras all over, weapons only in the hands of the cop's and crooks, both not worthy of trust...trash bins with microchips, tolls
everywhere, draconian laws that restrict the people more and more...and you feel SAFE in a place like that? You are ONE step away from total control
and yet some see it as a good thing...unreal.
