Scots opposed to ban on sale of swords
THE sale of swords in Scotland should not be banned, according to a consultation exercise on plans to tackle violent crime.
Details of the survey, published yesterday, also show the public appears divided over whether to license shops selling non-domestic knives.
The consultation, issued last June, set out a range of proposals to tighten the sale of bladed weapons, including introducing a licensing scheme for the sale of non-domestic knives.
Cathy Jamieson, the justice minister, said she would announce her final decision soon. She said: "We are determined to crack down on the knife-carrying culture, which has cut short too many young lives."
The desire to blame the weapon rather than the hand that wields it is almost a religion among the L³eft, and personal responsibility for one's own safety a heresy up there with human sacrifice.
Fortunately, at least for now, gun control is a dead issue in the United States (except in the Moonbat Hunting Preserve by the Bay). But the Brits lost the war on gun control in the '90's. Now they are coming for your knives.
