BBC NEWS | Health | Doctors' kitchen knives ban call

Okay, now! Hold on!

The UK is home to some of the most pervasive and suffocating gun-control laws in the world. They have laws that would make the residents of D.C. pine for the days of the Washington Bullets.

Those of us on the side of sanity (better known as the Second Amendment) have been saying its not the guns. So here we have ample evidence that its NOT THE GUNS! The Limey Liberals take away all the guns and what is the result? A nirvana of peace and cooperation? A citadel of love and true community? A haven for the oppressed and downtrodden?

No, you have people stabbing each other with knives instead.

Hmmmm. What could be wrong here? Is it something in the water? The air? The meat pies?

This is the fundamental problem with Liberalism, and it goes back to the Horace Greeley: they don't understand, or refuse to acknowledge human nature. Its not that people are evil, they are just led astray by (take your pick) guns, corporations, talk radio, the military-industrial complex, ... The Soviets really aren't bad, they just don't trust us (30 million dead in the gulags). The terrorists were driven to it because of our foreign policy.

Come to think of it, the only "bad" people to liberals are those of us who aren't liberals. Tom DeLay, Robert Bork, Trent Lott, Newt Gingrich, John Ashcroft, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, George W. Bush, and the list goes on. These are the REAL evil people (if evil really existed ... which it doesn't ... except for them).

Take away my guns and I can't defend myself from the guy with the knife. So my favorite quote from this article is here:
"The Home Office is looking for ways to reduce knife crime.

"We suggest that banning the sale of long pointed knives is a sensible and practical measure that would have this effect."

My only question for the Home Office is, "What about pointed sticks?"
