Guns...check; Knives...check, Next?

Fox news article

Furious anti-knife crime campaigners called last night for the judge to be fired.

“Enough is enough – we need to get tough on knives in this country and our judges should be handing out tough sentences, not brandishing their own.”

This stands out for some reason to me. I suppose when guns are banned and people still murder each other, we need to find something else to ban. This is to be expected when we reject the Biblical view that people are totally depraved, and instead focus on the external tools.

Here's a hint to world leaders out there: you'll never make a perfectly safe, perfectly peaceful society because you aren't dealing with perfect people. You might be able to remove liberty and oppress your people as you try though.
