I trust that assists.

Or not, perhaps.


It is of some use in illustrating the almost complete lack of such knives being used in crime. (One murder that I am aware of, by someone that would have just used a carving knife if no zombie knife was to be had)

I realise that most firearms crime will be of a passing interest to a magistrates court, but you are likely to hear the basic facts. You will have heard even less about .50 calibre rifles being used in crime. In fact, I am certain that neither you, nor any UK magistrate, has heard of a .50 calibre rifle being used in any criminal enterprise. But, our shepherds felt the need to introduce a law protecting the sheep from such abominations, while practically ignoring the real problems. I think I'm seeing a trend there.
