Cuts Like a Knife . . .

The truth, that is. England banned guns in 1997; in 2002, this piece noted that the crime rate skyrocketed thereafter.

Now, today's London Telegraph bemoans the "deadly rise in the culture of knives."

Gee, who would have thought? Once guns were banned, everyone was supposed to live in peace and harmony. How was anyone to know that violent killers would find a way to, well, kill violently? What next? Ban knives? The entire country can try to make do with the plastic versions that we get on airplanes these days.

That would put a little crimp in Nigella's style, wouldn't it?

Maybe they can ban bombs next....That'll get the Jihadists to stop for sure.

We have the same stupidity here, though.
