Governments have banned sharp knives. Several families used to have one to share. Governments have also banned the practice of martial arts. Airgun power is restricted in a lot of countries and I believe Australia regulates archery equipment. Granted making a knife is pretty easy but don't kid yourself, they will ban those too.

Every knife longer than a paring knife is a "hunting knife". I'm waiting for "assault knife".

I have no arrest records, speeding tickets, etc - I'm friends with some local cops, and have been a witness to several threats/assaults. I also tend to report things like car crashes, vandalism, etc when I see them. I wonder if I'd be characterized as a "suspect known to police" were I involved in a defensive shoot in my home town?

Damn read the link in spacecritter's post locking blades are illegal in the UK. I thought locking blades were about making knives safer not making them more killy.

So sad for that poor girl!!
So wonderful that a 77 yr old man would risk life and limb for her!!
I just wish he had his old 6 shooter - .357 with him.... but he was probably worried about carrying in a gun free zone.
To all Libtards: I guess it is time to outlaw Libraries.

Since when are libraries GFZs?

Many police officers seem to have good memories. I've notice that I am recognized even though I only visit the PD once every few years for my LTC renewal or getting prints/signatures for out of state applications. I guess that makes me "known to police".

I'm surprised they didn't call it a "Military style " knife.
Unless it's time to stigmatize hunters now as well.

Clearly reading is dangerous.
:eek:THIS IS ALL BECAUSE NES STARTED A "KNIVES" SUBFORUM FOR PEOPLE TO READ ABOUT KNIVES !11:eek:

"Suspect known for frequent interactions with the police"

Here is another chucklehead that was reported to the local PD and they sat on it.

Can’t wait to see if/when that part of the story breaks.
