Knife Control

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.

How about a run on knives too?

Weekend Edition

Obama Gun SalesThe recent presidential election caused a run on guns. Actually it started before the election, but now seems to be continuing. Evidently folks across America feel there is likely to be tightening of gun control. 

Here’s the list of media and their stories on the trend. It is even being reported internationally.

Will that carry over to knives? I’m not seeing a barrage of media stories on knife runs, but we know our knife rights are slowly being eroded. And it could be the best news for American knife makers yet.
