I'm not all that suprised by the "five inch knife" detail as the media likes to use numbers as a scare tactic, but clearly the use of the descriptor "folding" points to their underlying political agenda. Makes me just as sick as the act of violence itself.Cheddarnut wrote:Hmm, interesting that they specified it was a 'folding' knife, not just a five inch knife. Maybe im projecting but im on the defensive for obvious reasons.
P.S. That said, i'm all for prohibition.

Yeah, right. He stabbed three, killing one.
This is a reason I don't go to bars anymore.
Different world for sure. There have been bar fights since the first bar opened, but a human life seems to be worth a lot less these days.BAL wrote:I used to basically "live" in bars when I was in my running around days.
It's definately a different world now. There used to be bar fights and
what-not, but then you'd end up drinking a beer with the other guys.
Yep, a different world.
At some Bars / Nightclubs, they already do. The guy did an absolutely stupid thing by losing his temper that way. But the stranger who decided to heckle him for drinking beer out of a wine glass should have kept his mouth shut. Even if he was just having a bit of fun with the guy, that's something you do with a friend or a good acquaintance. Or, at the very least, someone whom a friend has actually introduced you to. You don't pull that nonsense on a stranger who just happened to sit down at a shared table in a crowded Bar. Looking through my short list of close friends, thankfully none of them are that immature as to provoke a stranger into a fight that might escalate WAY out of hand in the blink of an eye.Blerv wrote:That's insane. Quite a shame and another reason not to aggravate people you don't know.
Wouldn't be surprised if they started to outlaw knives in bars. To my knowledge you can't bring a gun into a bar, period.
