Thousands Of Weapons Seized From Schools, Including Samurai Swords, Axes And Air Guns

Post by Thorin on Fri May 12, 2017 3:46 pm

Samurai swords, axes and air guns are among the thousands of weapons to have been seized from schools across the country. Pupils as young as five were involved in some of the cases, the majority of which did involve children. At least one in five incidents involved knives, while the data, obtained by the Press Association from police forces in England and Wales, suggests an overall increase in the number of weapons found on school premises.

Police chiefs said there had been a “worrying” increase in young people carrying knives. They said police work with schools to help educate youngsters on why carrying any illegal weapon is wrong.

It's utter madness. What on earth does a child need a weapon for?

Why, indeed, do we need a 2nd Amendment to protect gun rights in this country?

It's like a large penis...weapons fulfill the masculine self-image, and enhance the bearer's self-esteem.
