The recent threads re. the anti-gun and now anti-knife laws in England reminded me of the Safety Bedside Table:
http://www.jamesmcadam.co.uk/portfolio_html/sb_table.html

I first came across this a few years ago and am amazed it is still offered. I guess their press isn't aggressive as ours is in pushing to close "loop-holes." If the law changes, the English might experience a revival of the 1970s' "Pet-Rock" fad (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pet_rock), but with a different motivation. :D

Seems like their Socialists (our "Progressives") want to push us back down the evolutionary scale, at least in terms of self-defense technology. :mad:

Looking at the other objects on that site, it looks as if this is a design concept, rather than a manufactured item.

I like it though, even though your clock might break as you sweep it to the floor.

Irony: That table would get you jail time in California.

...wonder if they'd make one with a short sword instead of a bat...? :D

Ever since I first saw that table, I wanted one. Sadly, after a long search, they are not being offered. Anyone with wood working skills here willing to put one together?

Thats the beauty of it, it's not a short shotgun anymore, it's furniture. They can't ban furniture, can they?

Fighting back in the UK will likely end up with YOU going to jail. Just be good sheep, hand over your valuables and kindly throw yourselves down the stairs, that's a good chap. :rolleyes:

Yeah, but a sword would be legal here. A baton is not. :rolleyes:

I think I'll start a new thread re this.

Exactly. It's a slap in the face of the British government if you defend yourself in Great Britain. You're basically saying that the government is incapable of keeping the peace. Oh well, those people deserve the government they have.
