Damn you, anon, you've gone and triggered me.
I can always still stand the gun control morons because 90% of the time they just don't even understand guns, have no clue how they work, and it's an irrational fear. So I figure there's hope for /k/ and /out/ type folks to educate them.
Then I realize there is literally an entire country full of fucktards who are marching and doing protests and PR campaigns and having debates TO GET RID OF POINTY THINGS. Aw, Jesus - come on, look at the damn photo. I see a nice yellow handled cake knife with ROUND tip, a few knives of the sort that I chop carrots with, a couple of stupid meme knives not even suitable for combat like an oversize Bowie and a brass knuckle knife - shit that would be laughable flea market stuff in the US - and generally a whole bunch of stuff I'd expect to see in an average kitchen, and not certain how an average kitchen could function without.
Ugh. Fucking Brits. Next you're going to ban testicles, then start on banning "hot things" like lighters and stoves and candles. Banning golf clubs and cricket bats is actually already in the works, in case you didn't know...if you keep one near your door or indicate that you intend to use it for self defense, you've committed an offence.
I weep for the fact that any group of mankind has become so weak. Especially the group that came so far to conquer ice ages and create European culture and music and metallurgy and science and so much more. The weak point is that white people apparently reach the peak of their evolution at gutless, stupid, and completely cuckolded. What the fuck, Europe? I mean, fanny packs and mopeds are one thing, but now you're fucking handing over your kitchen knives? I guess we can hope that some fanatical leader comes along and boots you in the ass to behave like men again.
