Knife control: First a joke, now a reality

As you, my astute readers, will remember, your humble WordBearer has been cataloguing the rise in knife related crime in Britain. See this post: Knife culture overtakes Britain

Well now the family of a young man murdered by a knife wielding assailant has called for stricter laws on carrying knives.

The Brits banned guns long ago. This illustrates the simple fact that people are violent, and they will find the means to kill one another. The tool does not matter. Gun, knife, it does not matter.

People kill people, not knives and guns.
