Stupid Weapons

As any good Irishman knows, a bottle can make a pretty good improvised weapon, when made out of glass and smashed against a bar.  It’s been enough of a problem in other parts of the British Isles that there’s been legislation considered.

I’m pretty sure these bottles, however, are no threat to anyone, except perhaps to the pocketbooks of those who want to pretend to take responsibility for their own security without actually doing so.

    I guess the British will next want to try legislating which materials can be used to make pub furniture and cue sticks in the UK, since all of these things have long been wielded as weapons in barroom brawls.

    Let’s not forget the dart board, either, since the darts could be thrown at someone, and then the dart board itself could be smashed over that same someone’s head.

    Are there any burly men working as bouncers in bars and nightclubs in the UK any more, or did the British already ban that too?

    You are totally unprepared for the dehydration aspects of self defense. Sure you have a handgun but what if you are in danger AND thirsty?

    In all truth if this cap was compatible with the rail system on an AR15 they would sell thousands, and somebody would decide it’s the must-have tactical accessory.

    I’m thinking grenade launcher, only instead of a grenade it launches a water bottle topped with the cap-o-death.

    This device is bound to give new meaning to the words “pop a cap”…or is that phrase unknown in the U.K.?

    Cap o’ Death … I’m imagining a great honking chromed Picklehaub spike.

    With tassel.

    The idea of making it pickatinny rail compatible has merit as well.
