BBC News is reporting that a team of doctors wants to ban long kitchen knives.
Yes folks, kitchen knives, the weapon of choice among British yutes. Apperently violent crime is on the rise and kitchen knives are used in as many as half of all stabbings.
This is yet another exposure to the blatent stupidity of liberal/socialist/communist policies. They assumed the problem with violence had to with the availability of guns. Well, guess what stupid? Many people have violent tendancies and will carry them out with whatever is at hand.
Carrying my theory a step further, I would wager that a violent criminal is less likely to use a gun in an assult than a knife. Shooting someone carries a weight to it that stabbing does not and calls for a greater consideration for the consequences. Stabbing someone may or may not be fatal. The act of stabbing seems less likely to trigger a pang of concience beforehand.
Bane? Any thoughts on this?
