    Problem with "outlawing" stuff is that it doesn't stop folks from harming others. Just makes more folks outlaws! There is no practical way to stop people from harming people, either intentionally or accidentally. It has been against the law to murder someone since the dawn of rule-making - has murder gone away? Since the dawn of the automobile it has been against the law to exceed the speed limit - no one speeds any more right..? I could go on, but you get the drift of it.

    Making rules, laws, regulations has never made any "unacceptable" activity go extinct, it only makes it possible for certain authorities to punish folks for engaging in said activity.

    "A group of doctors today called on the government to ban long pointed kitchen knives in an effort to reduce the number and severity of stabbings.

    Knives are the most common murder weapon in Britain, and three doctors from West Middlesex University hospital in London said their experience indicated that at least half of stabbing cases involved a kitchen knife."
