I feel lucky to live in a country where not even the police carry firearms. Knife for self-defense? Never thought about it.
Very different cultures, indeed.
My god, what a country you live in that this is even a discussion point.
So so sad
@ Rose-- It seems that from time to time you find it necessary to sneer at the United States and our culture; quite often out of context. Thus, I find the tone of your post highly objectionable! While I don't agree with the BS, macho posturing of those posters who seriously advocate carrying a knife as a WEAPON; of all the many posts in this thread, these are a distinct minority. Even so, they are entitled to their position. The majority of the posts deal with the aspect of carrying one as a TOOL. Knives are generally poor weapons at any rate; that's why they invented guns. If the discussion point itself disagrees with you, why did you post?
Originally quoted by Hap: Rose, this thread is just an escape vent for the real cause of concern in America. It is not personal safety, crime, fear of attack by muggers that makes us want to have clubs, knives, guns handy at all times. No, it is something no one can admit to or even dares openly to complain about.
@Hap-- There is a reason that we have the Second Amendment, and it's not about any of the reasons listed above. And no, I can't openly comment about "the real cause of concern" without violating the AUP. However I can say that Election Day is tomorrow, the polls are within walking distance, and I will be there. I feel truly fortunate that I live in a nation where I'm considered a citizen and not a subject. ................James.
