A spoon? Really? As dangerous as a knife?
As others have said what about baseball bats, or hey what about getting some lumber from a local hardware store? A piece of wood is a deadly weapon! What about moving on to really dangerous stuff? All the chemicals you need to make some very powerful explosives are available in most large hardware stores, some of the chemicals can be gotten from camping stores as well. So why not ban these? Oh hey ban the chemistry books as they teach you to make them as well!
It's getting silly now, it really is.
