    Bully for the Brits....they got some poor mope's bat'leth ( http://www.startrek.com/startrek/vie...le/111205.html ).

    Crime will surely drop rapidly now that they seized that fearsome weapon!

    But Victims of Crime campaigner Norman Brennan, a serving cop, branded the initiative a “futile PR stunt”.

    He said: “It is likely to be supported by the law-abiding public and not those who carry knives for criminal activity.

    “Knife crime will only get worse if we don’t introduce a five-year mandatory sentence for anyone carrying a knife.”

    The guy's right on point at the start...
    and then he exposes himself as a prohibitionist idiot by the end.

    Knives are among the oldest tools ever made and used by mankind... and people want to criminalize simply carrying them?
    They're USEFUL TOOLS! How can people argue in favor of not being allowed to have them?!

    This is just insanity!

    Well their knife crime should decrease just as their gun crime did. Pretty soon Great Britian will be the safest country in the world.

    I like how there is no mention of why they were in his house. I see nothing about this guy running through the streets with this thing and fail to see why it was any more of a danger than the car parked outside his house.

    Ugh

    Being where I hail from, it's natural to sometimes try to defend some of the things I see.

    However, more often, it is impossible to do so. Really, what possible danger does this pose? I mean, what are the odds of being beheaded by a Klingon sword?????

    This whole 'Nanny knows best' bull really gets under my skin. I am of the opinion that generally speaking, only the mediocre work in Government. Anyone with any REAL talent works in the private sector. So, that's why you get half baked ideas like this.

    They are just smart enough to be dangerous, and too stupid to know that they don't know everything.

    Its hard to belive that much of our law , and indeed the tradition that is the basis of the 2nd ammendment comes directly from english common law isnt it .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

    Thank God they got that Klingon sword off the streets. I mean, someone could conceal that under their.... well, their.....

    anyway, it's an implement too dangerous to trust their subjects with, so it's impounded.

    How many times has it been said, "Gun control (or knife) is not about gun control, it's about people control."

    Soon, the subjects in the UK will each be locked in an individual padded cell, which they can only leave in the company of a government escort to make sure they are not exposed to anything that might be dangerous in any fashion.
