These knife nuts are crazy. You don't need high powered knives like this when a simple butter knife will do. I keep my butter knife in a locked cabinet because I have children.
Such potential!

It is not as if a "semi"-automatic knife cannot be easily converted to full-auto with a few minutes with an emery board and a paper clip.

Ok, stay with me now. Humor me for just a minute.

The argument, I suspect, is that "no one needs such a dangerous thing". The implication being that Australians when faced with a dangerous looking thing cannot but loose control and commit mayhem. Much like Muslim men when faced with an ankle. They, as you know, loose control and commit rape so the females must remove all provocation.

This all stands to reason. Personal responsibility is not something that we care to address.

Does it not follow, then, that depictions of violence can have the same impact? That Australians, as a result of spending their lives upside down, cannot help themselves when faced with violent images in movies?

Where am I going wrong here?

Because they are upside down, the blood rushes toward the head and away from the penis where it belongs.

Just heard this on Sargon, I can't make this shit up.
British Man Arrested For Wielding Potato Peeler In Public
A British man was arrested Saturday after he was found walking the streets of Dunfermline, Scotland, with a potato peeler.

Scott Walker, 39, appeared before the Dunfermline Sheriff Court Monday, where he was charged under Criminal Law Act 1995 for carrying “an article which had a blade or which was sharply pointed, namely a potato peeler,” the Dunfermline Press reported.

The man faces up to four years in prison for carrying the kitchen utensil in public without good reason.
If it wasn't so sad it would be truly hilarious....
...
Walker’s defense solicitor said in court Monday her client “suffers from significant learning difficulties which have been lifelong.”
Great, there going to send a retard mentally challenged person to prison?
...
“No Excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife,” (London Mayor) Sadiq Khan tweeted in April. “Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law.”
Sounds like a real "law and order" kind of guy you got there...
Then Skank Of America could start in...

Sadiq Khan.

The man who said terrorist attacks are part and parcel of modern life.

If the UK had an armed populace would this bunch be in power?

At last a solution:
The Telegraph wrote:Knives are too sharp and filing them down is solution to soaring violent crime, judge says

A judge has proposed a nationwide programme to file down the points of kitchen knives as a solution to the country’s soaring knife crime epidemic.

Last week in his valedictory address, retiring Luton Crown Court Judge Nic Madge spoke of his concern that carrying a knife had become routine in some circles and called on the Government to ban the sale of large pointed kitchen knives.
[…]
So, he said: “I would urge all those with any role in relation to knives - manufacturers, shops, the police, local authorities, the government - to consider preventing the sale of long pointed knives, except in rare, defined, circumstances, and replacing such knives with rounded ends.

"It might even be that the police could organise a programme whereby the owners of kitchen knives, which have been properly and lawfully bought for culinary purposes, could be taken somewhere to be modified, with the points being ground down into rounded ends," he said.

Another solution is to remove the handle and make the other end of the knife just as sharp.

Ever hear of patients in a mental hospital going around stabbing each other?

Here is the answer to the UK's knife crime problem.

We'll end with the old "knife without blade missing its handle". :P
