So then, your criminals found other ways to kill you - edged weapons. Now they want your sharp-pointed kitchen knives. I wonder when they're going to want you to not even get out of bed in order to keep you "safe".

No Knives For You![^]

Meanwhile, here in the US, the FBI has released statistics that show that most violent crimes are committed with baseball bats. I'm sure it won't be long before baseball bats won't be available for purchase by the public (or the BATFE will classify them as title 2 weapons, and you'll have to pay for a $200 tax stamp in order to own one).
