When guns knives are…
When guns knives are outlawed, only outlaws will have knives.

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 research is published in the British Medical Journal.

The researchers said there was no reason for long pointed knives to be publicly available at all.

They consulted 10 top chefs from around the UK, and found such knives have little practical value in the kitchen.

None of the chefs felt such knives were essential, since the point of a short blade was just as useful when a sharp end was needed.

Never mind the nanny-ism going on here, but imagine that some folks would like 10 British chefs to tell the rest of the UK what kinds of knives they can and can’t have in the kitchen. Is this the kind of European “thinking” the gun-control left would like to see here?

Next on the list: knife sharpeners! Oh, the humanity.
