Meanwhile, where Great Britain used to be,

Yeah.  Never a reason to carry the most basic and personal of tools.  Because this crapstain says so.

But wait!  There's MORE!
The "tough, immediate" measures involve an incredible police crackdown, a ban on home deliveries of knives and acid, and expanding law enforcement stop-and-search powers so that police may stop anyone they believe to be a threat, or planning a knife or acid attack.
Parliament is also set to take up heavy "knife control" legislation when it resumes this week. The U.K. government is expected to introduce a ban on online knife sales and home knife deliveries, declare it "illegal to possess zombie knives and knuckledusters in private" — "zombie knives" are those defined as being manufactured for the purpose of being used as a person-to-person weapon — and ban sales of caustic materials to anyone under the age of 18, the Independent reports.
So if you've got your para grandfather's knife from WWII, it'll be illegal for you to keep it.  Or much of anything else.  Because 'dangerous object'.

At this point, I don't know if Britain CAN be saved.

"No excuses: There is never a reason to carry a knife!"

Tell that to the Sikhs...

From Wikipedia:

"It is a religious commandment given by Guru Gobind Singh in 1699, that Sikhs must wear five articles of faith at all times, the kirpan being one of five Ks."

With a fairly large Sikh community, are they going to get a "religious" waver?
Or are they going to practice religious intolerance?

James, that's a real good question. Must be driving the SJBs nuts: "They're MINORITY, therefore a protected species, and since all cultures are equal we must accomodate them, but they carry WEAPONS!!"

Wallace, Churchill and various others must be generating seismic alerts from the spinning in their graves: "You are making it illegal to carry a KNIFE? And searching people WITHOUT A WARRANT?"
