Well, the Irish are NOT subjects they are citizens of the Republic of Ireland. Britons are citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain & Northern Ireland take a look in a modern passport....Either way it's no use basking in some imagined idea of citizen as a free agent any more. The laws in Ireland on this are clearly unhinged, but they are the law. If you can't sharpen knives then how can you have kitchen knives, how can these two men actually sell any knife to anybody in the Republic of Ireland?? It's all about control of people for the sake of control, soon knife forums will be closed down or access to them forbidden as undesirable. As Orwell said, when a country declares war it primarily declares war on its own people.Thank you for this.... it is much like what I saw in my goober search... that's why I wanted other folks' opinion, to verify whether it's really that restrictive.... apparently it is.
Guess that's what becomes of being subjects, instead of citizens. ... the US is headed that way politically, as well, I'm afraid...
