"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.

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.....
