Sometimes I feel sorry for leftists in America. They work so hard to create at least the appearance of a reasoned position on something like gun-control, and then their elder siblings across the pond do something so silly it completely cuts them off at the ankles.
It’s funny because the most passionate 2nd-Amendment advocate in the grip of the most fevered slippery-slope argument would probably never think to imply that the mindset of gun-control would eventually lead to the banning of cooking knives, and yet here it is.
I suppose that sometimes that slippery slope really is there.
(Update: Does Britain really want to be known as the country whose people can’t be trusted with sharp objects?)
