I'm watching CNN, and they aired a segment regarding the explosion of "knife crimes". They have 75 LEO's whose jobs are to reduce these "knife crimes".

What in the world are they thinking?

Here's a link to one of the stories: http://news.bbc.co.uk/cbbcnews/hi/uk/newsid_3753000/3753722.stm

For the sake of argument let's say they could outlaw all knives. What next? I can see the headlines now: Club Crimes On The Rise - What Shall We Do

Club Crimes On The Rise - What Shall We Do

Exactly....

They just don't get it...its not the weapons...its the nature of man.

They don't realize that most criminal ventures are capitalistic in nature. Were I to go into any kind of market,legal or otherwise,I would want the biggest advantage I could get. If my business was robbing people,it would probably be in my best interest to be armed better than my intended victims. Hence,knife crimes are on the rise,as were gun crimes a while back in both the UK and Australia. The bad guys were exploiting weaknesses.

A bunch of folks unclear on the concept. It's about hooligans and thugs, not the tools they use.
