Lots of folks have made the point of how foolish it is to ban guns when other items - such as baseball bats, knives, and pork chops - can be just as lethal. In fact, earlier today I asked "when are they going to ban knives?"
Remind me never to do that again, cause sure as the sun rises in the east, the crazy liberals in England are blaming - and proposing to ban - more inanimate items. This time, you guessed it, they are calling for a ban on knives.
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 research is published in the British Medical Journal.
The researchers said there was no reason for long pointed knives to be publicly available at all.
Yep, ask an ye shall receive.
A special thanks go out to my cousin on Long Island for stumbling on this latest bout of foolishness
