    6 dead, 1 arrested in knife attack on British isle

    "The Safest Place in the Western World"!!! Wow

    Approx, 100,000 residents and 4,554 crimes per year. Who could possibly need arms for protection in that location.
    If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You get another chance.

    I thought that carrying knives was outlawed in the UK.

    They are. It's a highly effective law, provided you're only looking at those who actually follow the law. That's the principle failure of all legislators - assuming that just because they pass a law, everyone, including the criminals, will follow it.

    Homer Simpson said it best: DOAH!

    Meanwhile, year after year, Homer-like Congresspeople continue to propose similarly nonsensical laws that would be equally ineffective as the UK's laws prohibiting knives.

    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.

    I think that this article is hog wash. There is no way that a person could stab another person or persons with a knife. It is illegal to own one there as I understand it. Therefore, it never could have happened.
