Post Reply should people be allowed to own knives?

We should be asking whether or not people with violent criminal records should have them, not banning them for everyone because some with violent inclinations use them abusively.

Pointless knives only.

Yeah......

I'm against banning items because they are scary.

I keep my 'hawk next to my RPK.

Although the idea of banning guns irritates me, outlawing knives is much more unreasonable, to the point of equating to "plain stupid." We're talking about one of the earliest inventions of mankind, which we've depended upon for thousands of years for many, many things.

Of course people should be able to own knives. Banning stuff doesn't seem to stop the wrong people from getting possession of them. Plus it doesn't have to be knives, so many things can be used as weapons, and it's impossible to ban them all.

Outlawing knives would just make me a criminal. While guns only serve once purpose, knives are multi-use tools. I don't leave my apartment without a folder, and keep multiple knives in my pickups. They're too handy to not have around. I think outlawing knives would be downright silly. Next we'll have to outlaw tools like crowbars, breaker bars, etc. Hell, give me a pair of chopsticks and I am sure I could find a way to kill someone. Violent crimes will happen regardless of what a criminal is allowed to carry lawfully. Laws that restrict what law obiding citizens can own and EDC are necessary, but banning knives (and guns) only serves to disarm law abiding citizens.

I have plenty, and I use them to cut things up. Especially meat. Sometimes I cut veggies and even fruit.

Banning anything won't solve anything. Just about any human being has a slight bit of an engineer in them. If they see a problem, they will find a way to solve it. If the problem is that they can't get a weapon due to a law, they will find a way to get it anyway.
And for the people who say guns serve only one purpose, I once used a pistol's barrel and guide rod as a bottle opener, as well as using the hot barrel as a cigarette lighter too.

a bunch of what???

Outlawing anything only serves to drive it underground, and that means more illicit business being conducted overall. Going to buy something illegal one is likely to be offered other services the seller may provide.
