How about a national knife registry?
Editor: It was with great sadness that I listened to media reports of the Richmond murder trial of Jean Ann James, who was convicted of killing her best friend with a boxcutter in 1992. We saw the horror that boxcutters caused in the wrong hands on Sept. 11, 2001.
All of the knife owners reading this should be ashamed. How many more lives must be wasted before our government takes action?
I encourage everyone to write their MP and demand, at the minimum, a large RCMP bureaucracy for coast-to-coast registry of these weapons.
In addition, there ought to be a law which limits the capacity of the handles to a maximum of two disposable blades, and another law mandating that the blades be stored separately from the handle, all under lock and key.
