Doctors' Want Kitchen knives Ban in UK



Doctors' kitchen knives ban call

A&E doctors are calling for a ban on long pointed kitchen knives to reduce deaths from stabbing.

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.

The researchers said a short pointed knife may cause a substantial superficial wound if used in an assault - but is unlikely to penetrate to inner organs.

It's not just Britain

it's the natural progression of "do-gooding"

Britain just started earlier, so they're more advanced on the trajectory from real world to "nerf bat" safety foam future

maybe we can ban paper next, and stop those nasty paper cuts...

Goddamnit with any type of knife ban. Ok say you carry for self defense, but unlike guns there's nothing to trace, and there's noway to know if a guy is carrying unless he already committed a crime. So if illegal and carrying a knife I can't use cause obviously stab marks show evidence, but criminals carrying would stab and run so no evidence if carrying gloves. God fuck that so much like in Cali everything over 3 inches is banned, like a pussy blade like that would be a deterrent.

We need to keep this bumped, guys, seriously.

This is an example of what will come to the US if we don't watch out.

The Brits let their guard down and now look.

It's really very sad.

Sorry for rubbing it in guys - seriously. If I've offended any of you British I'm sorry.

You already have to be over 18 to buy a kitchen knife.

You can't buy a pack of paracetomols with more than 16 in it .. then you can't buy more than two packs at a time.

You would have to go into every chemist to get a good supply of paracetomols.

Think of all that waste packaging.
