    Too bad. Just think if our forefathers didn't have the guts to do what was done at Lexington and Concord, we'd be in the same boat with the "wussies". Let's try and keep them over there from now on, shall we?

    258 knife killings in England and Wales. I see gun control has really reduced violent crime. What a success story.

    Such stories could be coming to our shores sooner than we think.

    "Knife crime"

    Remove the "gun" and a new offender takes it place. Another inanimate object being blamed for the evil doings of a criminal. I guess when England bans legal, law-abiding citizens from owning a knife or using one in self-defense, the new buzzword will be "bat crime" or "roll of shillings crime"

    What a joke. Did not these sissy people own most of the World less than a century ago?

    What a joke is right. So much for there utopian society. Swiss army knives are going to bring an end to peace as the UK knows it.

    I have a friend in Yorkshire (the largest "state" in the UK) who is a retired coal miner with really messed up knees. He's in his 60's and was walking his Yorkshire Terriers one day in the woods (he lives way out in the country). He was approached by a drunken no-good individual in his 20's and trying to pick a fight.

    My friend just happened to have on him a folding knife another friend from the States gave him as a gift. After daring the young punk to try something, the punk took off with his tail between his legs.

    The sad thing is, had the punk reported him to the constables, my disabled friend in his 60's would have been locked up in jail.

    What a totally messed up country. :(

    We keep shaking out heads about the SD possibilities in the UK...this, if anything, should be a wake-up call for voting in November.
    America, are you watching?

    "They are promoting knife violence", really. I doubt their ad says "buy a overpriced jacket so you can shank a classmate."

    How about them promoting self defense and clean cuticles.

    Retsup is right, we may be heading down the same road.

    I can see a ban on assault rifles, "bottom loading hi cap" handguns, revolvers with moon clips or speed loaders, walking sticks, sharpened pencils, etc. if we are not careful.

    Today, we're going to learn to defend our selves against an attack with a banana!

    What if he's got a pointed stick?

    What's really sad and pathetic is reading some of the comments..

    Some of the people are so mindlessly brainwashed that they're calling for the store's purchaser to be "sacked".

    Honestly, do those people not realize that you can cause much more fatal damage with a pencil than one of those 2" blades?

    I'm appalled.
    I work to buy guns. Not really, but sometimes it feels that way..

    We'll soon become the same if you know who is elected. I already think our nation has become a bunch of spineless.......... We ourselves are on closed circuit TV.
