This where the leftists' argument end up.

"A judge has proposed a nationwide programme to file down the points of kitchen knives as a solution to the country’s soaring knife crime epidemic.

Last week in his valedictory address, retiring Luton Crown Court Judge Nic Madge spoke of his concern that carrying a knife had become routine in some circles and called on the Government to ban the sale of large pointed kitchen knives.

Latest figures show stabbing deaths among teenagers and young adults have reached the highest level for eight years, and knife crime overall rose 22 per cent in 2017.

Judge Madge told the assembled  judges, barristers and court staff: “These offences often seem motiveless - one boy was stabbed because he had an argument a couple of years before at his junior school.”

He said laws designed to reduce the availability of weapons to young would-be offenders had had “almost no effect”, since the vast majority had merely taken knives from a cutlery drawer.

He said: “A few of the blades carried by youths are so called ‘Rambo knives’ or samurai swords. They though are a very small minority.

 "The reason why these measures have little effect is that the vast majority of knives carried by youths are ordinary kitchen knives. Every kitchen contains lethal knives which are potential murder weapons.

"Accordingly, it is very easy for any youth who wants to obtain a knife to take it from the kitchen drawer in his home or in the home of one of his friends.”

As a result - said the judge - the most common knife a youth will take out is eight to ten inches, long and pointed, from his mother's cutlery tray.

He asked: “But why we do need eight-inch or ten-inch kitchen knives with points?

“Butchers and fishmongers do, but how often, if at all, does a domestic chef use the point of an eight-inch or ten-inch knife? Rarely, if at all."

"Acknowledging that any blade could cause injury, the judge pointed out “slash wounds are rarely fatal.”

So, he said: “I would urge all those with any role in relation to knives - manufacturers, shops, the police, local authorities, the government - to consider preventing the sale of long pointed knives, except in rare, defined, circumstances, and replacing such knives with rounded ends.

"It might even be that the police could organise a programme whereby the owners of kitchen knives, which have been properly and lawfully bought for culinary purposes, could be taken somewhere to be modified, with the points being ground down into rounded ends," he said."

Does this idiot judge ever prepare food for himself?  Yes, points are required on knives for a number of purposes in food preparation.  

Brit judges want police to enter homes and confiscate or modify even knives in one's kitchen.  Excellent example of why our founders required a written constitution with a bill of rights.  

"This judge isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer," stated Captain Obvious.  In Brit courts, lawyers wear short wigs made from the mane of a horse.  The long wigs judges wear are fashioned from the horse's tail -- obviously, for judges, the correct portion of the horse was chosen.

The deceptive world of liberalism, still maintains the belief their
followers will believe anything, and they aren't wrong.
The leaders are as stupid as their slaves.
The Dems act of denial to the real world is the same as, don't
offend the one who will murder you. 
There's not much an enemy enjoys more than the scent of fear
from it's victims.  Nothing after that except surrender.  


The stupidity of liberals, ability to ignore their ignorance


To the highly "educated" liberals, it's always the fault of society when the products of education by village (Village idiots!) run amok. The modern liberal's only response is to ban or at least restrict the tools that their created fools use rather reverting back to the culture that created responsible citizens. I guess that eventually the cultural problem will correct on its own when grocery stores close because the left bans the trucks that transport food because of mass vehicular assaults. 

Primitive peoples had taboos and believed inanimate objects have a will of their own.  Such primitives had elaborate rituals to propitiate the spirits of the objects and banned people from places and things that might upset their worldview.  How different is the mindset of those primitives and leftists of today!  Not much, knives and guns are the cause of the evil -- never mind that decades ago, mass shootings weren't present.  Not only were semiautomatics with high capacity magazines available for sale, but one could order such  by mail in all but a few states.  People could simply cross state lines and purchase such firearms on the open market without a background check if their state had limitations.  

Leftists can't admit that society changed, as such changes were, in many cases, their fault.  Therefore, they must abandon logic and blame the inanimate objects as the reason.  Not much  difference from the primitives propitiating spirits of objects. 

This morning in Belgium a man stabbed two police officers, took their guns and shot and killed them. He then shot and kill a passerby and then took a hostage in a school. He then charged the policemen and wounded a couple of them before they shot and killed him. Then there was that retired policeman in the USA who ran his car through the wall of a restaurant and killed his daughter and daughter in law. His guns had already been taken away because of depression and his erratic behavior.

And liberals are worried about guns?!
