File This One Under "You Got Bigger Problems"

Ok, while on the face of it this story about a knife getting through airport security is a bit worrying (if not particularly surprising), it's the other part of the story that has me thrown:

[Katrina Bell, 27,] had put the knife in her bag "just in case" before going on a blind date earlier that week, her sister and travel companion, Tikisha Bell Gowens, 30, said in The Sunday Star-Ledger of Newark.

Yeah, what a great idea! I'll stick a big horking knife in my bag. There's no chance I'll fall down, or bump into something, or reach the wrong way and hack a finger off. Nope, no chance at all.

Yep, and her problem is the nannies in the NJ legislature and police departments don't think she's mature and responsible enough to carry a firearm. How do I know this? Because they don't think anyone is mature and responsible enough, unless they work for the state.

In an emergency, a butcher's knife isn't as good as a gun, but it's a d*mn sight better than being unarmed.
