Yes in the Uk leaving your house with a kitchen knife (even a pen knife if its not stored properly with your fishing tackle etc) is already illegal. Even a cotch is considered a lethal weapon, as are your feet if you use them wrongly, ie on the head.
I agree with post above too, guns arent evil, they dont think so they cant have a moral tag attached to them they are inanimate. The question is about controling their use to keep them out of evil hands standard.
