No one needs to carry a pocket knife. Especially if it is a concealed, assult pocket knife.

Undeserving of all those votes.

Clearly some sort of trolling method.

Hah. Coming from the man lady, (Joe)lie.

I bet your hands are really soft and wrist arthritic from sitting comfortably and safe behind your office desk on a computer!

And with the handshake of a prepubescent girl!

Everything, except the handshake part, is accurate. ;)

If you smoke a pipe as my dad does, but which I don't, a pocket knife is a most useful tool for reaming out the buildup of carbon inside the bowl and the needle like extension is invaluable to clear tobacco beads blocking the stem. If someone is intent on causing bodily harm then an apparently innocent looking ball pen, preferably metal, expertly used with a thrust into an eye socket or to the temple of the head can be just as lethal. Should pens be banned?

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

Absolutely. The goal is to keep people safe. How would you feel if one of your family members got stabbed in the eye or the temple just because you did not support the, "ban pens" cause?

BTW, that is a really sick example. Maybe you should attend anger management classes so that you do not think about violent situations.

I just can't believe how violent knives are ..... they should have been banned years ago ... lol pfft !

ooops ... there were also bats and sticks involved as far as I could see ... if it weren't for bats / sticks and knives, we should have reached Utopian peace by now ... OH THE HUMANITY

But I bet you believe guns are alright, eh? Anyway, that's irrelevant. I think knife regulation laws are alright in their current state, although I wish the Balisong wasn't so widely banned.

Side: Wait..., what? No!!!

in order for humans to stay on the top of the food chain, nothing can be permitted to prey upon humans. NOT EVEN OTHER HUMANS! it's not that fucking hard PEOPLE!

Side: True.

I believe we should ban all things pointy.

Side: True.

hammers kill things too. and bullets aren't exactly pointy in all cases.

Side: True.

I MEAN! Water makes an angle which is a point, and bannign water would be nonsensical! (Fuck! I almost actually made real logic)

Side: True.

Your point? I think we should ban pointy things so we won't hurt ourselves on them.

Side: True.

There are lots of laws regarding knives.

Side: True.

It can only be the size of your thumb and must be registered. It must also be a butter knife. It can't be black, and you must pass a background check to purchase a grindstone along with a permit from the atf and a reason to own the knife. You must also wait a 2 week cooling off period before you can own the knife.

That is what the Progressives want confiscation of all weapons that are SCARY TO THEM !

There is knife control. Furthermore, killing a lot of people isn't as easy as it is with a gun, unless you are boss. If a single person managed to take out 50 people, survive and escape, with a hand held knife or even a sword, you'd be a legend, even if you were insane.

There were hundreds of people at that rally, 5 or 6 injured and all expected to survive. If there was ONE AR or AK in the group it would have been MUCH different. Apples and Oranges!

Why is it you Progressives are worried about an AR or an AK ? Is it you Progressives want confiscation of all weapons ?

Why is it you Progressives are so afraid of firearms ? Does COLOR have something to do with it ?

Most shootings involve two people, the shooter and the victim. Despite the technical capability to cause more carnage, there are other factors that influence the number of victims. Consider that a S&W;9mm fires about 10 rounds a minute, and is the most common firearm used by Chicago-area criminals, one study found. The Sako M95 fires 600+ rounds a minute, there are about 300,000 of them in circulation and not one has been used to commit a crime. So one despite having a greater technical ability to create carnage, in reality, is involved in less of it. Our thinking on the matter has to be a bit deeper than "Well, that weapon is more dangerous".
