    Now on the horizon - Knife Control!

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,158032,00.html
    Citing a rash of stabbings across Britain, three physicians wrote in a British Medical Journal article published Friday that the large pointed knife beloved by chefs both professional and amateur was needlessly deadly and should be replaced by safer, blunter counterparts.

    "The long pointed kitchen knife is an easily available, potentially lethal weapon, particularly in the domestic setting," wrote lead author Dr. Emma Hern of West Middlesex University Hospital (search) in London.

    Short knives, Hern and her colleagues Drs. Will Glazebrook and Mike Beckett wrote, generally caused only superficial wounds, but long pointed blades slip into human flesh in a way akin to "cutting into a ripe melon."

    The doctors proposed a simple solution — outlawing pointed choppers and slicers.
    You knew this was coming.

    Next on the horizon:
    "Where have you been buddy - living under a rock.... shoelaces were outlawed around the same time as the plastic butterknive. And don't get any ideas about using a KFC fork-knife-spoon , them damned things are just too versitile "
    Lately whenever gas prices go up , a part of me thinks back to the times of Bill Clinton , and I think of all the great things he did for China

    Knife control?

    Oh my lord, what has the world come to?

    The day the feds bust down my door demanding I turn over my knives is the day I become a wanted man.

    Sure I have knives in my kitchen that could easily kill people. Heck I have a knife I bought just for when I BBQ a whole hog over a pit on holidays.

    Sure this thing could easily kill a person, I mean the blade is a foot long, 1.5 CM thick, made of titanium, and has a saw on the back to cut thru any bone in the body. Sure it could kill people, but its a cooking tool for gods sake.

    Whats next, making me wear boxing gloves all the time because im a certified expert level 3 in Krav maga and could kill someone with my bare hands if I wanted?
