More knife violence
Yesterday I posted on articles reporting that "stabbings have become an epidemic in Britain" and in Canada. Today comes word of a fellow who "went on a stabbing rampage in Tokyo's premier electronics and video game district, killing six people and wounding 12, authorities said." [Update: seven dead are now reported]. It also notes:
"Once rare, stabbing attacks have become more frequent in Japan in recent years as violent crime has increased. In one of the worst attacks, a man with a history of mental illness burst into an elementary school in Japan in 2001 and killed eight children."
Hat tip to reader Jim Kindred...
Instapundit may be right: the next legislative priority will be to ban assault knives. We can require that blades have no points, limit sharpness, restrict sharpening to licensees who know the limits, remove military ("Swiss Army") and paramilitary ("Boy Scouts") models from the market, etc.. Oh, and fundraise like hell!
