    Ahh yes, there must be a ban on those lethal bike locks. After all it’s for the children.

    Can't help but to nit-pick here

    Pencil "lead" hasn't been made with lead for a hundred years or more. They use graphite now.
    No lead poisoning, but there should still be a law about keeping those tips sharpened. It's just too dangerous.
    I would suggest rounding all corners of furniture also.

    There are literally thousands of objects natural and man-made that can be used to kill another human being. It is in our nature to kill, that is what we need to target, not the object. If we understand what motivates one person to kill another then we could probably find a solution to the problem.

    Then again, maybe not. So, until we do, then any inanimate object will become a lethal weapon if people decide to use it that way. Restricting or banning them will serve no useful purpose. Killers will ultimately find something else to use.
