Banning guns won't cut it

"Girl, 14, admits killing sister A 14-year-old schoolgirl stabbed her 16-year-old sister in the back with a carving knife after a row about a boyfriend, a court has heard."

I've said this before and I've said it again, the desire to harm another human being and the availability of firearms are not related. If somebody wishes harm upon another, he or she will find a way. Banning the means does not solve the problem, we must instead attack the cause, or in this case: the reason why these girls could not control their anger.

Two men have been arrested in connection with the murder of a man found stabbed to death in his home.

The 44-year-old victim was found by police on Monday in a flat in Paulet Road, Camberwell, south London.

The men, aged 22 and 25, have been arrested and are currently in custody after voluntarily attending a London police station.

Detectives are looking for up to five people who left the murder scene in a Ford Focus and a white van.


Hmm, disarmed criminals turn to to edged weapons and ganging up, who'd a' thunk it?
