Man in court for having potato peeler in public place (Actually he went to JAIL)

That’s right. A potato peeler. In the UK they’ve banned all the guns. Now, and I’m not kidding, they are trying to take people’s kitchen knives and apparently potato peelers.

You know if you take all the potato peelers from law abiding citizens only the criminals will have potato peelers.

(From Dumfermline Press)

A MAN ended up behind bars after being found in a Dunfermline street with an offensive weapon, a potato peeler…

…He admitted that on Saturday in Appin Crescent, a public place, he was in possession of an object that which had a blade or was sharply pointed, namely a potato peeler.

This is in a Western country with Common Law. I guess Brits really are subjects.
