When They Came For The Guns...

...they did nothing. Now they're coming for the knives:

A&E doctors are calling for a ban on long pointed kitchen knives to reduce deaths from stabbing.

A team from West Middlesex University Hospital said violent crime is on the increase - and kitchen knives are used in as many as half of all stabbings.

They argued many assaults are committed impulsively, prompted by alcohol and drugs, and a kitchen knife often makes an all too available weapon.


The researchers said there was no reason for long pointed knives to be publicly available at all.

They consulted 10 top chefs from around the UK, and found such knives have little practical value in the kitchen.

None of the chefs felt such knives were essential, since the point of a short blade was just as useful when a sharp end was needed.
Now, replace all of the knife references with the appropriate gun term and you've got the very same argument used in this country against the obvious statement and intent of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.

But don't worry. The Brady types (aside from being liars) are only interested in making us safer. I feel better already.



Maybe things are going in the right direction here after all.
