I wonder what the honorable judge would make of those little daggers that I have seen Scots were stuffed down their socks or even those great big Claymores that they sometimes carry when in full regalia.
"I thought there was a law in this country about carrying knives - it should apply equally to all - those that don't want to comply are free to leave."
I regularly carry a knife - a very sharp one with a hooked end - for trimming the hooves of my horses and sheep and being a responsible citizen I store it a home not at the stables. As I was born and bred in this country where do I go to?
The said article has a sentence in the middle as follows: "The only time he takes it off is when he boards a plane." In other words it is removed when there is a potential perception of risk associated with it being carried. So, given the laws of the land, which includes "risk" in public places in general, including schools, this is a no brainer to me with a ban being essential.
