What about ball point pens? I bet I could do some decent damake with a good steel Parker.
Agreed. But think of the hassle you'll have trying to cut your steak with it!Tgace said:What about ball point pens? I bet I could do some decent damake with a good steel Parker.
I laughed at this, but seriously, the point is that these are tools, and using tools is important...one can't limit them because they're multipurpose!Bammx2 said:Agreed. But think of the hassle you'll have trying to cut your steak with it!
I wish they would. And send a city crew around to gather up the offending sticks and take them to stick jail. I have to perform a "mower hazard sweep" every week and it's always sticks in my yard LOL!searcher said:Why pointy sticks? They might as well outlaw having sticks in your yard. Then they can move on to the more menacing things like the walkers that senior citizens use.
It really has a lot to do with how the British government views their "subjects". You aren't responsible, reasonable, thinking adults who are capable of making your own decisions. You are "children" of the state, who need to be looked after and cared for. Isn't that what monarchies were? The lord fathers and mothers of their witless subjects? I mean, didn't God himself ordain that the King and Queen look after their subjects?Bammx2 said:I have 2 questions to aproach on this subject.
1-EDUCATION seems to be lacking greatly here.
After 1,000 years of being here...the UK gov't hasn't accomplished anything but self imposed arrogant blindness as far as they're "subjects" are concerned.
They honestly believe if you put a plug socket in the bathroom...you WILL blow-dry your hair in the shower! So they are illegal in the bathroom.
It is also heavily implied that trying to "educate" people and letting them make thier own decisions is too late.
Could that actually be possible?
2-Penalise the ACT...not the OBJECT.
This is believed to be a useless approach as well.
Hence banning "every damn thing in sight".
Not to mention the "lets provide everything FOR the criminals and nothing for people to defend" approach.
Here...if you use a gun of any type to commit a crime,you get 5 yrs automatically.if you even have a gun of any type...5 years even if you do nothing.By the way...toy guns are being banned as well.
If you get caught with a knife,especially with a locking blade.....2 years.
Crime not neccessary.
Is this a viable option to actually penalise the crime...not the object?
What would be considered the "best" prevention,if one could even exsist?
