First 'anti-stab' knife to go on sale in Britain
I find the knife/sword/gnome banning in Britain objectionable, mostly because whatever they do there finds its way here next. Some of the quotes in this are priceless though.
First 'anti-stab' knife to go on sale in Britain
First 'anti-stab' knife to go on sale in Britain - Times Online
The first “anti-stab” knife is to go on sale in Britain, designed to work as normal in the kitchen but to be ineffective as a weapon.
The knife has a rounded edge instead of a point and will snag on clothing and skin to make it more difficult to stab someone.
It was invented by industrial designer John Cornock, who was inspired by a documentary in which doctors advocated banning traditional knives.
Mr Cornock, 42, from Swindon, said that the knife will cut vegetables, but will make it almost impossible to stab someone to death and will reduce the risk of accidental injuries. Tomato slicing injuries sure, but I've never known anyone to accidentally stab themself or others with a kitchen knife, you?
He said: “It can never be a totally safe knife, but the idea is you can’t inflict a fatal wound. Nobody could just grab one out of the kitchen drawer and kill someone.”
The knife is expected to sell for around £40-50 and has been tested with “very favourable” results by the Home Office’s Design and Technology Alliance - set up to research products that can deter crime.

$50 says I can inflict a fatal wound.
With that knife, or a pencil.

Good thing I can't stab you with it, but I can certainly cut you like a fish with it.

me thinks the throat is ripe for slicing
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

Before too much longer, the only legal bladed objects there will be those plastic scissors that little kids get in kindergarten. The local butcher shop will constantly be raided by cooks desperate for a decent blade.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\

What's next on the list to make safe from being a potential weapon? I have an evidence room full of baseball bats, golf clubs , cane knifes , machettes and pool sticks.....SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

You will know what is banned when the un-smiling faces in leather trenchcoats hammer on your door at 0300.
Who told them? neighbor, child, spouse, parent.....well paid informant ?

Old People, like me, may not be around to witness the destruction of our Nation. The rest of you may not survive the collapse. We all have the sworn duty to prevent it.
