    When umbrellas are outlawed....ah, you know how it goes.

  3. Oh... here's one.... if it starts to rain, you can only legally deploy your umbrella if there is no other means of reatreat from the rain available!

    The umbrella was most likely imported! Ban all imports of umbrellas until manufacturers design safety devices and serialized so all sales can be track

And carrying an umbrella would require strong supervision; supervisors would, of course, require additional training. Manufacture and sale of these devices would need an entire design and inspection system, with strong government control of both manufacture and sale. I believe we're talking about an entire new industry here, and we can get in on the ground floor!
    I get your point, but be careful the wording that you use.

    There are many firearms that are not intended to cause bodily injury/death. Target pistols, target rifles, plinkers, training firearms, etc. Also, many knives are not intended for that purpose either: fillet knives, steak knives, carpet knives, utility knives, etc.

    Your summation give the anti's fuel to demonize firearms and knives even though for some makes and models their intended use is not to harm.
