    Wait, what? A getaway skateboard? Like “Back to the Future” with criminal assault? What next? Don’t answer.

  • Brass knuckles should be outlawed, that would stop criminals from using them… o wait. Maybe they should put up a sign making it a knuckle free zone that would work.

    • Brass knuckles & butterfly knives are illegal in California but are still sold

      • we all know that people who want weapons will always have access to them. always. to me that’s scary.
        ok, any asshole who knows i have weapons ( or assumes it), at my ready, and they are getting prepped to run a home invasion me – are they go to come in prepared to shoot me before i can shoot them?
        am i in more danger having self protection?
        a gun – not to protect my chattel, but to protect my person.
