Anyone who can do serious damage to a crowd of people with a pen knife doesn't need the penknife to be dangerous

Banning such jumped-up letter openers never protected us from violent terrorists. It just protected us from inept terrorists. Which (a) are not the people we need protection from and (b) is the entire point of the TSA theatre troop, when you think about it.

At this rate I expect solid evidence of h. sapiens' eyes migrating towards the sides of the cranium over the next few generations.

I am so stealing this idea if I ever write a post-apoc/far-future space opera comic book.*
