I read in the BBC online that the government of England
has placed a ban on “zombie knives” in the name of public
safety in answer to the recent upturn in stabbings. It
does appear that progressive thinking has gone global.
This despite the fact that the Chief Constable of the
Ministry of Defense has said an overwhelming majority of
the stabbings were done were done with kitchen knives and
not said “zombie knives”. This same Chief Constable also
said he believes the ban is a good idea. Nowhere in the
article was blame placed on the criminal.
These knives were inspired by horror movies, come in
different styles, and have names like “head splitter” and
“zombie killer”. Some look like ornate fighting knives
while others fancy machetes. And the price starts cheap.
So let’s see, you ban guns and while shootings go down
stabbings go up. Now you ban knives that aren’t even
utilized in most stabbings to make things safer and stop
the stabbings. Did I miss something?
Sounds a lot like the anti-gun crowd here wanting to
take away our “scary” guns. It makes me wonder if people
are drinking the same kool-aid worldwide. Again it sounds
like it’s more about control than the actual weapons
At the rate they’re going, in 10 years they’ll have to
ban all silverware because homicides by spork are up. Here
is a novel idea, go after the criminal not the weapon. We
do live in interesting times.
