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

    Attachment 10173

    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.

    I just read about that in a pro gun data thread. I guess the UK doctors do not understand, you can sharpen any piece of steel, like a screw driver. You can even put a point on a piece of wood. They must never have heard about baseball bats, axes, and hammers to just name a few. Who said doctors have common sense. They can not see that it is bad people that are the problem, not tools. That is why so many liberal solutions never fix anything. They do not understand the problem.

    LOL, Outstanding. Pretty soon they will remove any body part that can be made into a fist. Then elbows and knees. Sigh, finally they will arrive at the ultimate solution. An end to head buts - yeah, that will finally put an end to violence.

    When I first read the article I thought it was satire.

    The United Kingdom, the world's largest group home.

    That's the sort of infantilization that they're hoping for here.

    Britain has been held up as an example of what gun control can do for the country, but while they have successfully lowered the number of firearm-related murders, murders committed using other methods has actually increased, and Britain's overall incidence of violence has increased to the point where it has been declared the most violent nation in Europe for more than five years running; this Daily Mail report laments that Britain has a worse violent crime rate than either South Africa or the US (The most violent country in Europe: Britain is also worse than South Africa and U.S. | Mail Online). *The US has an incidence of violent crime of a little over 400 per 100,000 population. *The latest data indicates that Britain, on the other hand, has an incidence of over 2,000 per 100,000 population; that number has steadily increased in the years that have followed Britain’s own gun ban. *In taking away the citizens' right to defend themselves, they have turned themselves into a nation of victims, and they have also proven that those who wish to commit crimes will do so by any means available.

    Stick THAT in your pipe, Morgan!

    BTW, Sharpton began calling for knife control last year already Al Sharpton: Next Up, Knife Control | TheBlaze.com.

    Too bad that the hoards of muslims, who have literally taken over whole towns, believe their knives are "religious" ornaments so they will get a pass and when they start slicing the necks of the infidels, I wonder where the doctors will be then? Remember the recent brutalization of the Queens
    Guard soldier just a few months ago? They are more insane then we are and will follow all of Europe into a modern Dark Age--WE are not far behind.

    We may go into a new Dark Age, but we will go fighting. Unlike Europe that has given in to every demand of the left.

    What blows my mind is the fact that most of their police force (beat cops & detectives alike) don't carry sidearms either.

    WHAT "WE WILL GO FIGHTING"? With a moslem slimey socialist sch***k in the whitehouse how exactly is this "go fighting" suppose to happen? At the ballot box with millions of voters just wanting their obamamoney and nothing else matters except the color of his skin and illegals who will be getting whatever they want, which will probably include the vote? All I can say is I am 71, I have nothing they can do to me, I am not a sheep, and if someone comes to my door to tell me where I am going next or that I am not able to obtain healthcare, someone will go to hell before I go to heaven.
