The mayor of Oslo, Norway is calling for a ban on machetes following a series of brutal attacks in the city using the deadly weapon.
"People are committing crimes! We must ban objects!
Mayor Raymond Johansen argues that Oslo doesn't have a need for the huge knives because the city doesn't have a jungle, which is where machetes are designed to be used.
And if you're a gardener, or landscaper, or just a homeowner who uses one? "Too bad, prole, We have decided you should use something else."
Apparently "Find the criminals and lock them up" is too insensitive, or difficult, or something.
