George Wallace said:As the just of their argument is that this is "for Public Safety", are they considering the kirpan a dangerous weapon? If they are, then they may want to take a look around the room that they are sitting in. There are hundreds of objects in the room that can be used as a weapon. For instance, you can take your pen/pencil and use it to jab and kill someone who may annoy you in the next cubicle. Are we now going to ban pens and pencils?
I'd say they're also concerned that it is a weapon and looks like a weapon - it's not something improvised like a pencil that could be used in the heat of the moment. It's a knife.
