A team from West Middlesex University Hospital said violent crime is on the increase – and kitchen knives are used in as many as half of all stabbings.
They argued many assaults are committed impulsively, prompted by alcohol and drugs, and a kitchen knife often makes an all too available weapon.
The researchers say legislation to ban the sale of long pointed knives would be a key step in the fight against violent crime.
“The Home Office is looking for ways to reduce knife crime.
“We suggest that banning the sale of long pointed knives is a sensible and practical measure that would have this effect.”
Seriously, Revoistas. I have jackass fatigue. I would like to make some kind of a pithy, relevant observation here but I am just exhausted. Running non-stop on a treadmill of idiocy is tiring.
Actually, we are two laws away from utopia. Once we ban these, civilization will have achieved a higher plain.
