[Knives] are mostly out, especially by present-day U.S. standards. Almost anything foldable and over three inches is a no-no to have on your person, to say nothing of using them defensively …
[As for tactical batons] forget it: These are prohibited by name/type where we traveled, and as “law enforcement only” gear in many other locales …
OC spray is out too: “We found a relatively stupid substitute for sale in Britain, and if some clown is incoming with a bladed or striking weapon, you might have a trivially better chance at evading him. That is assuming, of course, that you can hit your target, and that he isn’t moving too fast for you to escape his momentum—a more injurious problem than many suppose, by the way. At least these dye your assailant for several days and aid apprehension. How this ameliorates a life-changing, closed-head injury, we don’t quite see.”
Basically, as British soldier Lee Rigby found out, the British are left defenseless against the onslaught of the Islamists or anyone else, and that’s the way the elitists in the U.K. want the commoners to be. Defenseless.
And for that reason, you understand, my British readers, why eventually you will move from England or be swept up into the Islamist’s circle. You will be converted or killed, your women will wear hijabs or be raped, and your sons will visit Mosques for prayer.
And it’s why we here in America aren’t subjects of the Queen. Gun control was the catalyst for the American war of independence. Never forget that. If anyone forgets it, that scene may be repeated, i.e., where gun control becomes the catalyst for another war.
