    What happened to the UK? It's people were once tougher than nails. So sad.
    All of those moved over here, a long time ago

    Sporks will only be sold one per month, with a permit only. Hi capacity boxes of 30 sporks will be banned. Rubber bands are next.

    "Offensive weapons are defined as any weapon designed or adapted to cause injury, or intended by the person possessing them to do so." I believe that with this statement they have poked a massive hole in their own logic while at the same time providing ammunition (pun intended) for the Pro-Gun movement. Even with the given age of the article it still makes me want to crap in my hands and start clapping.

    Added note: Are we on our way to regulating semi-automatic matches next?

    When will bow and arrows be banned? God forbid we all become Robin Hood.

    So I guess a knife with a 3" blade can't really hurt you when it's stuck in your neck?
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    That's why walking down the street with a bat will get you arrested in the UK. You'd better be able to prove you're going to or from a game. You can't carry a knife either, unless it's clearly work-related, because the legal presumption is it's a weapon not a tool.

    What about umbrellas with pointy metal tips? This could get ugly during the rainy season, that's all year in England.

    Those fall under the same ambiguity as canes. If you defend yourself with one, do not be shocked if the crown prosecutor deems it either "adapted to cause injury" or "possessed with the intent to cause injury". Remember that in England, shooting a burglar will get you arrested and charged.

    I did four years of training in catering backin the 80's does that mean I can grandfather my kitchen knives now or do I hand them into the kitchen police, I was always told its best to have a good sharp knife than a blunt one as blunt knives will cause more damage, I'll just use a fork or will that be considered to dangerous to put in my mouth. Woman might want to consider the stiletto heel as well that's pointy. Big Ben might be taken down as well that's to pointy, just look at Concorde that no longer fly's, that was pointy ( it was also French, they are just as bad) they don't fire their guns just throw them on the floor. eBay has them up for bid described as never been fired slightly scratched from being dropped.)

    Just replace the word knife with gun and you pretty much have the same language as is contained in Senator Feinstein's proposed gun ban bill..... I guess she has a contact in England.....
