But think how much safer everyone will be!
"Don't drive your truck when you're all jacked up..." Gretchen Wilson
2% of the U.S. population thinks the Cold War was caused by climate change
If they don't also ban grinders, I suspect a workaround will be found.
Thank heavens we're not still part of that mess.
"Lots of ways to help people. Sometimes heal patients; sometimes shoot dangerous people. Either way helps."

From the article: "Pretty soon they'll outlaw fists..."
Um, but in Great Britain, fists are already outlawed.
And cricket bats, and canes, and anything else, when used in defense.
There actually are are laws which forbid you from defending yourself from attack!
If attacked, you are legally required to curl yourself into a little ball, protecting your head with your arms, and await the arrival of the police.
If you fight back--and particularly if you fight back with any sort of, well, tool--you will be arrested and may face trial!

Yeah well, what if someone attacks them with fresh fruit?
"...as politics in Washington and elsewhere grows increasingly un-moored from reality, humanist wisdom provides us with one final consolation: There is no greater lesson from the past than the intractability of human folly." Heather Mac Donald
And always keep in mind that London (and several other UK cities) have the most prevalent public surveillance camera systems anywhere in the world. So if you do defend yourself, and choose not to wait around, they are quite likely to identify you and find you.
The more restrictive the laws become the more violence we will face.
If it saves just one life ....
Annoy a Liberal!! Get a job and think for yourself!
Save lives! Turn in your pointy knives!
Read our government's plan to destroy the Constitution.
Punishing the law abiding stops crime.
I'm not inclined to disarm for a concert, game, (entertainment) and I ain't going on a plane or cruise.
"Wouldn't want to or Nobody volunteer to" get shot by _____ is not indicative of quickly incapacitating.
By now our forefathers would be shooting.
Life is too important to take seriously.

Sounds like the Brits need to have their own Revolutionary War!
We can show them how it's done.
But then after 243 years we can show them how to lose it again.
I love the comments:
My apologies to any erstwhile Limeys. I'm thankful daily to the good Lord that my ancestors fled that place."Does anyone want to invade the UK? Figure we only need maybe a few people at this point." - Don't worry nobody wants the place!
"This is where Canada is headed under Trudeau and his Merry Band of Marxists." - Headed? You folks in the UK have ARRIVED!
"It's NOT about safety it's about control! - As Gomer says, "Surprise, surprise, surprise!"
"Next, banning pointed sticks." - Then cars, trucks, airplanes, bombs, chewing gum, spears, using the words mate and bleedin', and bowler hats.
"They won't stop at guns, they won't stop until you are helpless." - Sounds like your lot is already pretty much helpless. Just don't pick a fight with the Argentines again.
"Pretty soon they'll outlaw fists... It's a mental disorder." - If you would ban Parliament, you'd be money ahead.
"I'm so old I remember when 'knife control' was a joke and not a thing that was under serious consideration." - Hang around a while, the criminal element will shorten your lifetime.
"The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has limits."
They have been anti-knife for a while. They have bins for people to turn their knives into. Recently I read a story where someone stole a bin full of knives.
We get the government we deserve.
This is pretty much what you would expect to happen after 1,000 years of inbreeding on an island
I was born a gun owner, it wasn't a choice, I didn't become one later in life...I was born this way
