    Same story, different people. If someone wants to do harm to someone else they will find a tool to do it with.

    Read on down in the article, apparently this guy collected axe handles.

    They both shared an interest in Islam, but neither of them were Muslims.

    Gee, and I collect firewood too. In fact, I have a whole arsenal of the stuff (though not yet enough for the coming winter).

    I suppose you could ask why does one man needs that many chunks of assault wood ?

    Jack the Ripper and Lizzie Borden never used guns.

    Obviously these hatchets and knives are too dangerous for commoners. I decree Britons shall hereby be forced to cut wood by karate chopping with their hands hereafter.

    Why don't they just get it over with and ban any object more than 6" long or anything pointy. We're watching a train wreck in progress.

    Especially those guys who try claim thier hands are registered as lethal weapons. After all, they are assault hands!

    A picket fence? All they see is 237 stabbings waiting to happen! Why, you are nothing more than an arms dealer! :D
    Call me crazy, but I find axes and pickaxes are much more effective tools with the actual axe head attached. Did they already ban them over there or did this guy just like doing things the hard way?

    Was this a White Pine Saturday night special or a real Hickory handle?

    What caliber was it?

    Was it carried concealed or was it in the glove compartment?

    Was this a recent purchase of a family heirloom, handed down from his grandpa?

    Was the aggressor trained in proper axe handle use or was he using this weapon for the first time?

    Was the axe handle a full automatic or single swing?

    Was it an assault handle (IE painted black) or was it unstained?

    :)
