    How many people must die before we get these weapons of such brutal slayings off our streets and out or our kitchens.

    True, but this is at least the second dupe.

    Don’t people search anymore?

    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?

    It’s easier to buy an assault knife than it is to buy cocaine. Enough is enough

    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.

    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.

    Slow down there big fella. The book burning comes AFTER the gun (and knife) ban.

    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.

    LOL Reading. Education. Ban it all. Burn it all down and no more people will die. I read that somewhere. . . . in school, I think. The dude may have had a small mustache. ;)
