Gun Control

Guess gun control is working ok in the UK:

Knife violence in London is now running as high as gun warfare in some US cities, it is claimed today.

One of Britain's leading trauma surgeons has told how one in three of his trauma patients is now a stabbing victim.

It look s like they have chosen to die by knife instead. . . not sure I would call that a step in the right direction. Personally I would rather have the option to carry a gun - knife fights are messy and the advantage is to the stronger thug not the average citizen for many reasons (training, surprise, number of attackers, strength, willingness to get into hand to hand, size, skill needed to defend oneself from a knife . . . )
