They got rid of most civilian guns in 1997; apparently now, there’s some kind of ‘problem’ involving knives. (Self-stabbings?) Obviously, the suggestion here is one is more likely to be stabbed with one’s own knife, then to use it in self defense. (Gee, where have I heard THAT argument, before?) Of course, self-defense in and of itself is a problematic issue there. I understand glass beer mugs are being replaced with polycarbonate ones (less heft, worse weapon) as well. And plastic knives in restaurants!
