    I wish this was a joke, but it seems to check out

    BBC NEWS | Health | Doctors' kitchen knives ban call
    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.
    They consulted 10 top chefs from around the UK, and found such knives have little practical value in the kitchen.
    None of the chefs felt such knives were essential, since the point of a short blade was just as useful when a sharp end was needed.
    The researchers say legislation to ban the sale of long pointed knives would be a key step in the fight against violent crime.
    “We suggest that banning the sale of long pointed knives is a sensible and practical measure that would have this effect.”​

    Ah no Mindgrinder, that would take it away from it's original design and into the realm of "scary" utensils. I'm not sure you could even get the stamp for something so destructive. Better to stay with using your fingers although not sure where the PTBs stand on having more than 5 fingers available at a time.

    It's not the fingers, it's the opposable thumb that makes hands into killing machines.

    Gun crime has increased in England...

    The problem here is our president is so out of touch with reality that somehow 0bama sees a rifle when Adam had 4 pistols.. If you have wondered how 0bama could spend 900 billion on a stimulus which failed completely, my last sentence is the answer.

    It's ok m8, I got a permit for the razor spork from my shrink...it's for "medicinal purposes" as I have to cut some of the pills she gave me in 1/2 to help keep me dumbed down and not having a problem with authority. You should be able to keep your thumbs if you just get more dependent on the system....

    No, 'fraid not. They will issue you "special duty pills" of the correct caliber, and you will be required to buy them, at full price, because Obamacare will not pick up the cost of "experimental drugs", The spork will be "re-purposed" for the good of the collective. And if you have a "Back-up Spork", you will go to jail if they catch you using it.

    HUZZAH!" Yup, you're right! It's for our "White hats" when we ride into battle, and that image was pretty accurate, (your side would not stand a chance!) :D

    I suspect there will always be a rifle behind every blade of grass. Registered or not.
