Banning Magazines, Zombie Knives, and Books

Ft Collins, CO –-( Leftist bullies don’t always succeed.

The State of New Hampshire officially jettisoned all knife-related statutes in 2011. Other states are quietly following.

Proponents of this purgative measure clearly showed that “knife regulations,” invariably so poorly written as to be indecipherable, were mostly unenforceable anyway, and in any event demonstrably had zero deterrent effect on violent crime.

Like “magazine bans,” and similar unproductive, “trash” legislation, they just clogged the System and wasted everyone’s time.

As an example, here in CO our “magazine ban,” signed by our governor in 2013, has never been enforced! In the five years it has been “on the books,” not a single person has ever so much as been charged, much less convicted, under this joke of a law. After signing the legislation, our governor so much as admitted it was stupid.

In any event, this unenforceable “ban” is universally, and contemptuously, ignored (an should be) by gun-owners, and police, throughout our state.

Anti-gun and anti-knife legislation is, without fail, designed by treacherous leftists (like our Colorado governor), only to “punish” owners of these weapons, solely because we don’t, and won’t, vote for them.

They don’t want us shooting (in self-defense) violent criminals (who do vote for them) they so lovingly coddle. They want everyone utterly defenseless, and of course, dependent upon them.

Currently in the UK, “The Land of Upside-Down,” baffled/frustrated chefs and cooks are now publically denigrated as “knifemen” or “enemies of the steak,” who could, at any moment, represent “a threat to public order.”

We hear contemptible politicians there invent ridiculous terms like, “zombie knives,” which is the UK’s version of “assault weapons,” in order to vilify a particular arm and anyone who owns one, or who would every want to have any species of effective personal defense.

Despite the utter, and exhaustively demonstrated, failure of all these “bans,” the only solution ever offered-up by control-freak politicians is “additional bans.”

Next, they’ll ban books! There is no limit to their treachery.

At least in NH, there are a few politicians with sufficient honesty and personal dignity to say:

“Enough is enough, already! These bans don’t work. They’re never going to work. We need to go in a different direction!”

Those who don’t say that need to find themselves, this November, “freshly unemployed.”

“I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for physical strength, nor powerful political connections, nor great wealth, who have none the less staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies attempting to remove certain books from their shelves, and who have courageously refused to disclose to ‘thought-police’ names of persons who have checked out those titles.

The America I love still exists!” ~ Kurt Vonnegut.

All “combat knives” have been illegal in U.K. for over 25 years. That designation extends to most “hunting” knives as well.
But, like a lot of “illegal” items and substances, it only prevents honest law-abiding citizens from having them, and does nothing to prevent their use for criminal purposes.

Gotta remember, laws are written by dickheads who have zero real world experience or knowledge.
here in Queensland we have a law in our weapons act that states. “Any knife where the blade can be unfolded or extended using one hand only”.
It was meant to target flick knives and butterfly knives, but,,,that’s right,,,box cutters are illegal.
People have been charged for having one in their tool kits!
Also, supermarkets can sell them, we can buy them, but the moment you set foot outside after the purchase your a criminal. Go figure!!!


The laws are used to add to the charges of people the prosecutor wants to convict and sentence to serious jail time. That’s the reason that they are passed in the first place.

We did have one guy charged but it was used like the seat belt law is… He was charged with something else and the magazine law was applied as additional charges (probably because he had receipts. (

Otherwise, I agree.


Enemies of the STEAK?


I know, I caught that too. Awesome pun!
Gotta figure out how to get that into a conversation. Lol

@lars, funny yes, but before you know it, eating out at your local diner might mean that ordinances have reduced you to eating with sporks, just to insure the safety and well-being of your fellow diners.
