Call to ban knife sales by Trading Standards

"Mystery shopper research found as many as four out of five online stores were prepared to sell knives to children aged under 18, and in one case a 15-year-old boy was able to purchase four knives, including a large machete, using a debit card..."

  1. this is really good news the info is really good as well keep it up

  2. Stop punishing law abiding citizens for the actions of a few individuals. I very much doubt many kids actually buy knives over the internet. Id like to see them trying to explain to their parents why they a getting a knife through the post. Besides any kid can just walk into their kitchen and get a knife, oh yeah your precious anti stab knives stop that dont they? But then again the kid could just go into his dads shed and use the grinder to make a pointed knife. So are you going to ban grinders and metal files too? How is it so difficult for you nannies to realise that criminals dont obey laws? It just makes things harder for the majority of people who use knives legitimately.

  3. Wow, you brits have really become a bunch of weak kneed quivering cowards. Quick! Ban everything! OOOOH NOOO, what's that I hear is next?? Fork crime! Hey, maybe your football stars can have adverts telling the proletarians that forks are not the answer! Sporks for all! Think of the children.
