    Take the Guns first, the go for the blades

    A&E doctors are calling for a ban on long pointed kitchen knives to reduce deaths from stabbing.
    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.
    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.

    When my Sweet Baboo brought this to my attention, I thought it was a joke. It is not. First they came for the guns.........................

    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    I'm surprised you didn't know about it. It's about seven years old. Notice how the wording is similar to how they talk about so called assault weapons.

    That's interesting. There are more legal pitfalls in our country over carrying a knife then there are over carrying a firearm.
    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
