Jail knife carriers, says Cameron
Anyone caught carrying a knife without a good excuse should expect to be sent to prison, David Cameron says.
Prime Minister Gordon Brown has argued that anyone over 16 caught with an illegal knife should be prosecuted, rather than escaping with a caution.
But Mr Cameron says the presumption should go further - so anyone convicted of carrying a knife should be jailed.
Jack Straw says ministers will review sentencing guidelines on knife crime when they come into force on 4 August.
Currently, around a third of those found with offensive weapons receive only a caution or final warning.

My father is 88. I don't think he'd do well in prison. :(

What kinds of knives are they talking about banning? Butter knives? Daggers, like the one I have from my wicca days?
How about banning baseball bats?

they'll take my knife from my cold dead hand. Right after I shoot at them.

I hate to say it but I think England is lost. Unfortunately we will not be far behind.

That's when I lost my love of grammar and English lit. I didn't include it in the list in the lounge of things white people love. :D
