Knife contol database and GPS!

Postby bignflnut » Fri Mar 15, 2019 2:06 pm

A conservative member of parliament is calling for the United Kingdom’s knife control measures to be taken to a new level with GPS trackers added to modern cutlery.

Scott Mann, a member of parliament representing North Cornwall, believes the United Kingdom needs a nationwide database of cutlery complete with GPS trackers embedded in every knife, allowing police to stop anyone carrying one.

According to Mann, “If you’re carrying [a knife] around you had better have a bloody good explanation,” while noting there could be exemptions for fishing.

Every knife sold in the UK should have a gps tracker fitted in the handle. It’s time we had a national database like we do with guns. If you’re carrying it around you had better have a bloody good explanation, obvious exemptions for fishing etc.

Let's hope this is some of that dry brit wit.

Yep, you can't change handle scales on a knife easily and make your own scales. :oops:

If you are going to mess with scales why not just make a knife from scratch.
They would have to outlaw grinders and stones.
