More Misguided Weapon Control

This entry was posted by Rob on Tuesday, 6 May, 2008 at

In an attempt to beef up security in China before the
Beijing Olympics, Chinese citizens must now register their
identities when they buy potentially dangerous knives.
Knives being targeted include daggers with blood grooves,
lock-knives, and knives with blades measuring over about
8 1/2 inches.

So basically it is the same old story. All law abiding citizens
will follow the laws and register thier knives. All non-law
abiding criminals will continue to NOT register their weapons
and carry them with the same reckless abandon that the
would have before these laws went into effect.

Sorry, but just like many of the gun control laws, I believe
these knife control measures are well intentioned, but
somewhat missing the mark none-the-less. More laws to
restrict the people that would not follow them anyways are
not helping the situation.

It would be nice to believe that nothing will happen to you, but
the reality of it is that an ounce of protection could be worth
more than a pound of cure. What is Worth Protection to you? Your
belongings? Your family? Your personal well-being?

Yours in safety,
