British Doctors Call for Ban on Long Kitchen Knives to End Stabbings

December 27, 2012 By Daniel Greenfield

The good news is that if we ever do get that assault rifle ban, followed by a handgun ban, followed by a ban of anything that can shoot bullets, the “Banners” will still have a banner year of banning all the other ways with which people kill other people.

Violent crimes haven’t gone away with the UK’s gun control. They’ve actually gone up.


Britons suffer 1,158,957 violent crimes per year, which works out at 2,034 per 100,000 residents. The U.S., meanwhile, has a rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, which is lower than France’s, at 504

Instead of gun crime, the UK worries about knife crime. And has been practicing knife control.

The UK outlawed the switchblade and gravity knife in 1959.

In 1988 possession of a pocket knife with a blade larger than 3 inches in public became illegal.

In 1996, it became illegal to sell a razor blade to anyone under the age of 16.

In 2007, you needed a license to be able to sell “non-domestic knives.”

Despite all that knifepoint robberies rose by 10 percent this year and there are some 60,000 stabbings each year. So the push is on to outlaw long kitchen knives. Once that’s done, surely utopia will be at hand.

Snip

Take a good look America. This is where we’re headed under liberal dominion.

I get your point, but comparing stabbings to shootings is apples to oranges.

What is the murder rate? Britain is 1.7 per 100,000, US is 4.5 per 100,000. Despite the Brits having more violent crime, the murder rate is more than twice as high in the US.

If you want to make an argument against gun control, better to look at mexico. They have fairly strict gun control, but the murder rate per 100,000 is 22.7 - almost 5X higher than ours.

You can't get there from here.

I hope they don't forget to ban meat or bbq forks, these babies have a long reach and long stabbing tines. Also, a cheese grater across the face could be a very dangerous weapon when used by a thug.
Never mind the common household 2x4.

You got a good point. Less likely to be killed after a total gun ban, more likely to be raped, robbed, molested, tortured, bullied etc.

Why not amputate everybody's hands, so that nobody can be strangled to death. :banghead:

And here we have another example of an attempt to skirt regulations put in place for your safety by replacing outlawed pistol grips with "thumbhole" stocks on these lethal assault weapons. They even have de facto vertical foregrips and can accept relfills with 30 or more teeth!

Oh when, oh when will these affronts on our most treasured legacies of weapons bans dating back hours, if not days, cease?
