Forget gun control. The new rage is knife control. No, really.
The money quote:
The researchers said there was no reason for long pointed knives to be publicly available at all.I suppose next will come fork control (are those dangerous tines really necessary when a spoon will suffice? I think not), then spork control, then will come laws dictating who can or cannot own a hammer and nails, until finally humanity is allowed to own nothing but rubber houses filled with soft, fluffy pillows.
And then, we'll finally be safe. Except for our fingers, which could be used for strangling, but those can be surgically removed by doctors, assuming they have knives to do it with.
