No such thing as a PC trap confused2

I've heard of Mouse traps though ;);)

Try telling that to ANY politician or ANY police office. Then, while doing that, just carry one in your pocket and 10 times out of 10, you will find yourself being in trouble with the law.

That is fact!! smokin:

You don't seriously believe that anybody with bad intentions would buy a jacket just because it came with a knife with a 2.5 inch blade, surely?


If T.K Maxx was allowed to sell that Jacket - "let's just say"??

Then that would open a loophole for anyone purchasing that jacket to also have a knife in their possession.

That would be reason enough imo for people to purchase that jacket - just for that reason. Makes sense.

Quote:
Or that in purchasing that jacket someone would turn to using the knife for evil purposes?


It could happen, couldn't it?

It's not too far from realistic, is it?

Like your other post and comments, this is yet another opportunity for the doomsayers in the media to add to the fears of the general public - something that you so vehemently condemned.


I think that a store as well known as T.K Maxx made a serious error in judgement by allowing a Swiss jacket to occupy their stores housing a weapon, ie: Knife.

That is enough for me to complain and say how I feel about it okay :)

Well...this recent event is causing a MASSIVE stir...I can tell you :o

It is just DISGUSTING!!!

Read This :(

How can any store be that stupid?

How can anybody in their right mind come up with an idea like this?

"Any teenager who bought one of the trendy hooded coats would be instantly “tooled up” with a 2˝in blade."

Read the comments on this story here

Here is one comment,

"Posted by: Kippersmcgee

It seems like a good idea. I remember always losing my gloves at school but my friends mum had his attached to his coat through a similar cord system. Those small knives are easily lost otherwise."
