    I’ve been warning people about those “assault knives” in kitchen drawers. But that’s just me. I suppose that pervasive rationality will prevail and that neither the “assualt knives” nor their owners will be blamed or demonized.

    Another victory for gun control.

    As a person who owned and carried a Swiss Army Assalt Knife of multiple purposes every day in high school back in the 1970s, without managing to go on a single murderous rampage using it, I expect future headlines to report that assault rates rise in high schools, “despite” the bans on fighting and guns and knives.

    Amazingly enough, big belt buckles on heavy belts, afro hair picks and long pointy scissors were banned in my school in the 1970s due to the frequency of use of such items in race riots a few years before I got there. Ordinary pocket knife carry was not regulated by the school, as that fell under legal-to-own & carry weaponry at the time for us youths.

    It was after I graduated that knives were verboten, and my kids suffered through their HS years unable to cut open boxes or whittle up a pointed stick during recess. I tried to compensate for their oppression by allowing them potato guns and Estes rockets and guns of their own at an early age, and they seem to have turned out OK with these oppression-opposing makeshifts.
