Even Home Depot was selling them.

The whole knife culture that has grown up over the past few decades needs to be looked at. We haven't had serious knife legislation from US Congress since 1957.
Knife culture?

It isn't the government's job to tell us what we can own, merely what we can use our possessions for - and even that is a very loose interpretation.

If you want new legislation, let them keep pushing gun laws. They'll get to the knife legislation when they realize gun laws didn't work. Much like Britain.

That has to be the stupidest new law I've ever seen.

What sort of "Safety" will be gained from this?

Then again, maybe I'll get to see Gordon Ramsey hit with charges after finely slicing a tomato with a carbon fiber blade.

A criminal doesn't care. He'll be carrying one you can't find.
