    Just when you thought the UK couldn't get any worse with its weapon laws, it did.

    The most amusing part of the article though is The Blaze randomly putting this at the bottom in some sad attempt to discredit him or something

    It's hard to think this is the same nation that defeated Napoleon.

    Because every 1st level NPC has at least a knife. It is just a useful tool.

    I think it is funny that this is the conservative MP in Britain. I guess the English Bill of Rights isn't old enough for him. Gotta disarm those peasants.

    In classic English fashion, they got by with a little help from their friends.

    But what the history textbooks didn't tell you is that the French army spoke English with fake French accents, and the British ultimately won the Battle of Waterloo with the help of time travel:

    If only there was a projection weapon that can shoot small cylinders so fast that it'll kill them.

    I have a strange feeling that you can make a knife out of practically anything

    At first I was: "Approved law that makes obligatory to include a GPS in the handle of every knife"

    but then: "Sales of icepicks and screwdrivers increase"

    To me the most laughable thing about this is the technological impossibility.

    Currently, a GPS tracker on German amazon costs 52 €, lasts 3 months if you never use it (standby) and would never fit in a knife handle.

    Great plan.
