The Liberty grabbers have just parodied themselves into non-existence with the absurd notion of restricting edged weapons.
Let’s begin with this brutal reality: Bladed weapons can be easily made of any material that can hold an edge. They have been around for millions of years, they literally defined the stone age.
Anything that can hold an edge can be made into an easily concealed weapon.
They only need a material that can hold an edge and a way to make it sharp. These materials range from the stone to hard candy. with almost every solid material in between. It’s well known that these weapons are easily produced within the confines of maximum security prisons.
Nevertheless, the Liberty grabbers have gone to the absurd length of trying to control these weapons with calls for their removal from kitchens or detection by ‘Knife wands’. Not only are these weapons easily produced under the strictest of conditions but they can also be made of non-metallic materials, undetectable by non-invasive search methods. In addition, edged weapons can also be easily concealed, making them easily hidden from even the most invasive search methods.
Therefore, it should be obvious that society cannot control these weapons. Any attempts at the level of control necessary to carry out this task will inevitably fail. This type of control of Liberty will be to the detriment of the innocent since they will be rendered helpless in the face of criminal or terroristic threats.
The Liberty grabbers never give up trying to control people.
However, that hasn’t given pause to the Left in trying to push the authoritarian envelop into untold reaches of insanity. Never mind that Liberty control doesn’t work as advertised or that each failure means they will try to punish the innocent even further. Each failure of the Left’s Socialist national agenda only means they double down even more. Even the perennial “Cut down on the carnage” excuse fails since on balance because more people will be adversely affected by these controls on their freedom. Meanwhile, the government becomes more empowered while innocent people are killed.
The UK is showing everyone the future if the Liberty grabbers get their way.
The UK has reached a point where the sheer insanity of Liberty control has imploded in on itself. The imposition of private property controls (Intergalactic Background Checks) will be followed by gun registration. All of this setting for their final solution of Gun Confiscation, where the very same situation will happen, with the same tragic results.
It’s time to end the insanity of Liberty Control.
Repeatedly doubling down on the insane notion of trying to control the guilty by punishing the innocent has to stop at some point. We need to learn from their mistakes to halt this absurd process before it goes any further. As Benjamin Franklin once mused: “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” The people wanting to defend themselves will have to declare enough is enough with these absurd measures knowing that both Liberty and safety are at stake.
