Throughout the years, I have disagreed with a great many folks born & raised in typical western democratic republics about a great many things. But there was only one subject upon which, not only did I disagree with the opposition, I didn't even understand its logic; to wit: The western leftist platform (or lack thereof) on private knife ownership.

Socialism really does seem to brainwash citizenry into serfs. In addition to the usual collectivist economic outcomes (i.e., a slim few number of very wealthy folks & tons of impoverished masses), Europeans & Canadians seem lockstep in bemoaning the idea of free, law-abiding citizens defending themselves with modern knives.

I know these are large populations. Without looking up the numbers, it's a safe bet that Canada & Europe, summed together, likely sport a populous that doubles that of the USA. Therefore, one would think there are some few folks in all those untold millions that would espouse enjoying their own Thousandth Amendment.

But I have yet to encounter one....even just one....in the cyber-world.

How is that possible?

Even more curious: Do they even believe their own spiel?

In the wake of this de-facto zombie-apocalypse that is the young-bear-shark-bum-rushing-European-borders phenomenon; & in turn, the related stories of all these Europeans (particularly blade-purchasing Austrian females) buying blades in much the same way one might expect as resultant of a zombie-apocalypse....I have to ask again:

Do these so-called "enlightened" Europeans themselves even believe their own anti-shiv party-line?

If I was a European or Canadian, no matter what the law proscribed, I'd own at least one reliable 6-inch plus a machete, at least one grinding stone, at least two ninja stars; & just make sure to keep real, real quiet about it.

I wonder how many other European & Canadian citizens have been doing exactly that for over a decade?

I'd bet my last dollar that that number is also in the millions. Sadly, I'd also bet it's not high enough in the millions to ensure the survival of a free state. But I pray I'm wrong.

Anyhow....Here's my question:

Do Europeans & Canadians really not have bastard swords as the news-media would have me believe?

A stout stick or half a house brick is all you need.

I always bring a fully-loaded ferret to any fight I think I may be involved in.

You should see the state of a European border bum-rushed by a bear-shark, young or old.

I saw a hogfish once, not actually flying mind.

I'm opposed to the gratuitous usage of knives, but keep a slightly sharpened pencil under my pillow at all times. So far I've driven off one home intruder with a hastily composed sonnet.

In light of the increasing threat from religious terrorism (I had to shut the door pretty darn quickly from two old ladies wanting to sell me the Watchtower just the other week) I am thinking of upgrading it to HB - I feel I might need the increased hitting power. But I don't want to seem like a lead crazed lunatic, liable to fling a short story at the local library (a bunch of fascists who have a repressive fining scheme aimed to economically destroy freethinking libertines) at any minute. Advice?

Here's another way the French (and I) keep the terrorists at bay.

At school I once pinned a kids hand to a desk using a pencil.
