You guys are a little behind the curve.

It's already happened.

British Doctors Call for Ban on Long Kitchen Knives to End Stabbings




Instead of gun crime, the UK worries about knife crime. And has been practicing knife control.

The UK outlawed the switchblade and gravity knife in 1959.

In 1988 possession of a pocket knife with a blade larger than 3 inches in public became illegal.

In 1996, it became illegal to sell a razor blade to anyone under the age of 16.

In 2007, you needed a license to be able to sell “non-domestic knives.”

Despite all that knifepoint robberies rose by 10 percent this year and there are some 60,000 stabbings each year. So the push is on to outlaw long kitchen knives. Once that’s done, surely utopia will be at hand.

You can have my assault knife when you can pry my cold dead fingers from it!

You guys are over-reacting. They're not talking about banning all knives, just the ugly ones.

Example: The knife at the top of the pic will be banned, obviously, because it has a black, tactical, military-style stock:



The second knife in the pic will still be legal to oiwn, because Dianne Feinstein doesn't think it looks as scary as the other one, due to its wooden handle.
