    And in all honesty, wouldn't even a properly functioning Machete be a "laceration hazard?"

    I'm very upset about this. Taking recalled machetes out of the hands of babies is tantamount to taking away their constitutional rights. Just think of all the toddlers who will no longer be able to clear a path in the jungle:-( First, recalled machetes. What's next, children's meat cleavers? I hope the NMA gets involved soon!
