The Ultimate Knife Control Thread

Wed Feb 13, 2008 9:18 pm

After hearing of yet another stabbing death today, I think it's time to start the "ultimate knife control thread" because gun control seems to be working so well, we ought to apply it to knives too.

There can be different categories.

Only knives under say, 3" will be legal. BUT, you need to go through a course and have a background check to get them.

Then there are those EVIL serrated knives. Those will be the "assault weapons" of knives, after all, there must not be a use for them.

Your steak knives will be the "hunting rifle" of knives. But PETA will get on board because you shouldn't have them anyway because eating animals is wrong!!

Finally, only law enforcement will be allowed to have knifes. After all, why do we need them, that's what law enforcement is for.

I mean, you take guns away, and people just stop dying right? So I think we should outlaw knives too. Lets face it, the American public is uneducated, and knives are sharp. We wouldn't want someone accidentally hurting themselves do we? And God forbid, someone defends themselves.

So what say you? Should we try and ban knives next? That can be the Brady Centers next campaign.

Quoting Lobster (Thread starter):

Swiss Pocket Knives have a length of 7 or 9 centimeters (3 inches / 3.6 inches) and have to be legal and fully unrestricted. Standard kitchen knifes are 12 to 25 centimeters long. You can talk about a dangerous knife if it is more than 40 centimeters. Everything below that is something you have with you quite normally.

You freakin' liberals with your knife-control schtick!  Angry Banning knives will only force mopey teens to find another way of garnering attention. Will you take away their teeth, too? Imagine the potential contagion exposure our nation's robbery professionals will face if they have to resort to gnawing their uncooperative victims.

This is a sad, sad day. You should be punished with a thousand claw-crackers, you mangy crustacean.  grumpy

Lets ban the following:

Guns
Knives
Cars
Trains
Planes
Hammers
Cancer
Bacteria
Water
Fire
Rocks

These can all kill and I demand my congressman push legislation to outlaw their existence...

Not that John Dolittle (Do little) would do anything about it...

Tell this to a Filipino farmer. A bolo (Filipino machete) is a standard multipurpose tool, used, for cutting firewood etc., and it is definitely longer than 40 cm.
BTW, I have one (plus an axe and a pocket knife) in my truck.

One of my mom's friends in the neighborhood was an old retired military man who
had served in the Phillipines. He had a machete that was made by a Filipino village blacksmith out of a leaf spring from a Ford. It was a fine chunk of cutlery and neatly filled the slot between axe and cane knife. It had a lotta heft and that fine Ford vanadium steel took a nice edge. The shape of it was weighted toward the end so you could get a good wrist snap into it...jsut the thing for cutting brush or bamboo.

This isn't a joke.

Several municipalities have banned replica swords.

I think it was the BMA that suggested that they should ban all pointy knifes in the besiged British Isles.

While I can consider the reasoning behind it, it's still ridiculous none the less. I was watching this guy make genuine Katana's and they were SO cool. I'd love to get my hands on one of those.

Well I think the english ban still allows collectors to keep them, but they have to be authentic ones or new build "Art" swords and they can run up to 100K each.

Which shows that these laws are only ment to ban the ownership of them by the poor.

I was attacked by two big Alsations neiton leads recently. It unnerved me so much that when walking I have taken to carrying a pocket knife in my pocket, not that i would ever use it.

That you meant it sarcastically is clear. HOWEVER, in view of trouble with pocket knifes when travelling, and hearing about even more trouble there and here and there, the matter is NOT a humourous one, not at all

Quoting Pope (Reply 16):

"exception" ? Not really. There simply should be no ban on pocket knifes with blades of less than 15 centimeters and none on kitchen knifes and souvenir knifes with blades of less than 30 centimeters in length .
-
You otherwise also have to ban pens, keys, laptops, etc ---- and such things as the Omani knife pictured above also should still be ok

and here some of the articles which should be excempt from any ban

this in a way almost is an obligation. I might even say that whomever has grown up in Switzerland will defend the pocket-knives, be it jokingly or in full. I am not alone in having had such a knife in my pocket for more than 50 of my 57 years.  yes   wave
