Knife Control

CNJ Knife Rights Beat

With all the world attention the UK has received lately for their absurd knife control laws, and manipulation of  knife crime stats, folks are going bonkers.

We tend to think of people as being reasonable, level-headed and rational, right? Well, then how about this comment to a story about knife crime in the UK on abc.news blog.

“Knife control!!! We need Knife control. Register all knives. Have an 18 day waiting period to purchase knives. We can not allow normal humans to obtain, own or use knives. It is a travesty. Ban all knives like we do guns. Knives kill people. Sue the knife manufacturers for making knives that kill. Sounds absurd doesn’t it. Just like gun control. Need crime control. Life in prison or more death penalties for murderers.”

Kind of gives you the willies, doesn’t it? These folks are out there and they are crazy!

As I read through the comments to this blog post, it reminded me- we have to be active about protecting our 2nd Amendment Rights, otherwise, we will be gun-less, knife-less and having to use sticks and rocks to protect our families.

  1. Yes, the Second Amendment covers more than just guns, but more obvious, at least to me, is the fact that criminals will not give up their guns (or knives) no matter how many laws are passed. To disarm those who need to protect themselves from the criminal element in our society is nothing short of foolish. I choose not to live in constant fear.

    Point 2: Having grown up on a farm, guns and a good pocket knife (or skinning knife come butchering time) were a part of everyday life. To collect and value these items is almost second nature. In that respect, it would be like making baseball cards illegal to collect from a hobbyist point of view. My collection just happens to have blades instead of batting averages.

  2. Knife control is treating the symptom not the root cause. But you watch in the next 10 years many knives will require a permit to carry.
