Is it time to introduce controls on the ownership of kitchen knifes?

    After the recent multiple stabbings, perhaps it is time to introduce controls on the possession of kitchen knives, or even confiscate them altogether?

    Because, just like guns, they can be so, so dangerous  . . .

    What do you think?

      I think it's a tired and senseless argument against gun control, the same as "Guns don't kill people, people do."

      I also think using coffins (or hospital beds) for soapboxes is a horrible, almost inhuman practice that shows exactly why humanity is failing at being human.

    You can have my kitchen knives when you pry them...from my cold...dead...fingers!!

    Nah, doesn't have the right ring to it. How about...

    If you outlaw kitchen knives, only outlaws will have kitchens!!

    Meh, forget it, I give up.

      None...yet.  From what I read, there were several that were pretty darn lucky.

    Wrong: the way to stop a bad guy with a knife is a good guy with a GUN.
    That way you don't have to be close in to engage....lesson from cop school... 1st week.
