British Police Brag About Taking Rusty Spoons And Kitchen Implements Off The Mean Streets In “Weapons Sweep”

While I feel deeply and truly sorry for the Britons denied the right to adequate self-defense, I can’t help but mock the asinine practices of their gun-grabbing government and its apologists.

Apparently you’ve never seen what happens at a barbecue when desperate folks get down to the last scoop of macaroni salad. This is serious business, sir. Lives are at risk.

Amen, brother.

Oh my word, almost spilled my coffee after that one.

Here’s hoping that last tweet isn’t prophetic!

Seriously, folks. If the Clue boardgame has taught us anything, it’s that dang near anything can be used as a weapon.

In the endless pursuit of ridding the world of potential weapons, how many folks will lose their liberty and, just as importantly, their right to defend themselves against criminals who ignore the law?
