Perception??? Misperception, needs correction!

[QUOTE=Osprey Guy]What Coop said...


"...I think that every time someone posts pics of a knife sitting alongside a gun it just adds fuel to the perception that knives are seen as weapons rather than as tools. Heck, baseball bats are used more often as weapons."

I'm sorry but guns are tools just as are knives, as are screwdrivers, as are baseball bats. I own a ranch and I have a rifle and a pistol whether am in my Jeep or on horseback day in and day out. The perceptions that I think are wrong is that guns kill. Guns don't kill anymore than knives, screw drivers or baseball bats. It's people who kill, it's people who misuse the tool. I believe that this misperception needs to be corrected; a knifemaker's forum is an excellent place to start.

Wow, I found a roost! Somewhere that people speak the truth!
I understand Dennis's point of view. He basically, just my opinion, is trying to deflect "the heat & placate the would be knife enemies". Which to a degree, I can understand, especially if your livlihood is on the line. As has been stated in previous posts, with all due respect, I personally disagree with that stance.
For a long time, going back twenty years, I used to rail on about conspiracy's, the left vs. right, what a jack booted thug Janet Reno was......etc. etc.
The truth is, there is no real right or left, the UN & the US Government in the end is only as powerful or weak as we allow it or make it to be. Currently, I keep my mouth shut, my powder dry and my blades sharp. Does that mean Im looking for a fight? Heck NO!@ But, the bottom line is both guns and blades are both tools and weps, period.
Stand up and be counted, or be counted as they herd you into box cars.........
We should chuck Kofi's UN right into the River the building stands next too, and turn it into a hospital for our service men and women.
I am not giving up my guns (what ever category they fall under) OR my knives, ever, even if it makes me a criminal. Im not now, nor have I ever been a criminal, as a matter of fact, I worked in the executive protection field worldwide and have seen first hand what weapons bans do to people....... Can you say DARFUR? Best, DAVID W (a law abiding AMERICAN)

All I will say is that i carry a kimber .45 almost everywhere i go. right next to that is a CRKT Bear Claw(until i learn to make my own that will do). Now guns have a bad name because of little kids that like to show off and point them at people, and low life criminals that pick on the weak and timid. If everyone was a responsible gun owner none of these problems would exist. Of course if everyone was a responsible knife owner things would be ALOT different. if jim bowie were a responible knife owner would history be different? im sure there are thousands of peope in the UK that are responsible knife owners....that doesnt matter....they are taking them from citizens over there. ridiculous. Anyway when it comes down to CQB i would take a pistol in one hand and a nasty sharp killer of a blade in the other, cause when youre butt is on the line you need something proven to help.........and its becuase of firearms that we sleep well at night, and dont fear being kidnapped, or executed or any of the other fun stuff thats happening in the world right now........my couple of pennies......

Well I hope the same thing doesn't happen in your country that has happened in mine. It's like living behind the iron curtain. Folks in the US like blair because he supported them in Iraq...but that is only our foreign policy. The UK is the home of political correctness. Decent people cannot speak their mind or carry a pocket knife.whereas criminals can do as they like...........immigration is uncontrolled.we have serbs iraqis, poles.many of them on benefits even though they haven't paid a penny in taxes..and more gun crime now than at any time than when you could buy a gun legally.
It really is a horror story, folks forget that blair or B. Liar as we call him is head of the socialist party
.nuff said rant mode off
