Whats next?

It had to happen...many proponents of the Second Amendment pointed out that even if guns were outlawed, criminals would just turn to other weapons.

They effectively outlawed guns in the UK and Scotland, and now they are after knives. Whats next? taken to the idiotic extreme, will they ban trees on private premises so as to take away the availibilty of branches to use as clubs?

The answer has always been to hold the criminals responsible, not their weapons. But that means assigning personal accountability, something the G/KFW "progressives" view as anthema.

A prime example of the nanny state at it's best, sadly the same mentality exists north of the border, where the government doesn't want to "intimidate the prisoner" with their guards wearing uniforms. It looks like modern European civilization holds a murderer in higher esteem than that low life that gets a parking ticket.

I can't even carry my Leatherman Wave, which horror of horrors has a 3 inch locking blade. The bootiful thing was a 21st present, name-engraved n all with a belt pouch...which sits usefully on my desk now.
