WITH GUN BAN NOT WORKING, POLITICIANS IN BRITAIN NOW WANT TO BAN KNIVES NATIONWIDE

If ever we needed proof of the expression that "guns don’t kill people, people kill people" look no further than Britain, where families may have to start practicing cutting their steak and bread at dinner with a spoon. This is, of course, because Britain's politicians have now made the absurdly ridiculous move to call for the banning of what Reason magazine called "the most useful tool ever invented" - the knife.

Reason reported this morning that British politicians have "declared war on knives" and are moving swiftly to try and ban them, since gun laws aren't working to help stop crime altogether:

Having failed to disarm criminals with gun controls that they defy, British politicians are now turning their attention to implementing something new and different: knife control. Because criminals will be much more respectful of knife laws than of those targeted at firearms, I guess.

"No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife. Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law," London's Mayor Sadiq Khan tweeted on April 8.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am thoroughly reminded of Ron White's line about "You can't fix stupid", which is the way the British Government is trying to handle this issue.

So, soon in the UK, will Chefs' carving knives have to come with a permit?!?

One might imagine so.

Will there be "instructional videos on "how to carve meat with a plastic spoon?!? One might imagine that as well.

And will grocery stores only be allowed to send meat ground, even lamb chops and spare ribs?!?

Right now, in the UK, I wouldn't bet against it.

London's Mayor Sadiq Khan, has been such an horrendous disappointment to the British people, that if he stands again for election in this capacity, I would almost bet on a Conservative candidate trouncing on him, and winning handily.
