Little boys with pocket knives used to be a common and accepted thing. They would learn the responsibility of safely using and owning a sharp tool, and would also learn a bit of self-reliance because they had a handy tool at their disposal.
If the "adults" keep taking things away because "you'll hurt yourself or someone else" instead of supervising and educating their kids in their proper use and care, we end up with "men" who don't know how to do things like change a spare tire or operate simple power tools, and/or we end up with a bunch of dismembered fingers because their owners picked a tool up and were ignorant in its use.

That's just pathetic! How on Earth can a nation that's a leading world power have become such ... pansies? Can you imagine the England of today fighting World War II? Winston Churchill must be rolling in his grave!

England has managed to rid it's citizens of the dreaded gun and is now working on banning knives. What's next sharp sticks? Good grief!

You could do more damage with a butter knife than that little guy.

Reminds me of the Simpsons episode where the aliens invaded after Springfield gets rid of all their guns. Then you see bartender Moe chasing an alien with a board with a nail in it.
Oh, the horror!

Wow. Serious issues. They should ban those coats. Could take down the entire country. Then they should take on the pro-boards with nails in them crowd.
Of course the real problem is teens in Hogwarts with wands (that sounds sick).

I'm gonna admit, I had to chuckle at this story. Man, it appears that the British really have turned into a bunch of pansies. (Not saying ALL Brits are mind you, only the sheeple).
Apparently a fragile 2.5" non locking blade is "Lethal". Makes me wonder, do these people have steak/kitchen/butcher knives?
Or have they taken all sharp objects away from the sheeple and are cutting things with their teeth instead?

One thing I found dumb that we sell in my store is a Hoodie Sweatshirt with a Mask. The Jacket Zips up to the neck, BUT.. It continues to zip up even more and enclose the hood. So that the head is completely covered. I was watching a potential shoplifter try one of these on and then I realized that this was a fantastic tool to use in a Robbery, Mugging, or Any Crime. The Hood has mesh eye holes so that the wearer can see through. Within one square mile area of my store EVERY. allow me to repeat. EVERY single Store, Gas Station , and Fast Food Restaurant has been robbed. Most at gun point. Many of the gas stations have signs the say: Protected by Glock.
