But none of those are as efficient as a gun. I would bet that while stabbing incidents may have increased, the number of victims per incident has decreased. A standard clip in a Glock 9mm yields 15 victims in less than 10 seconds. Can't do that with a knife or a bat or a tree branch or a heavy ornament.
This is about deterrence and reduction. Elimination, sadly, is not a realistic goal.
I agree. Maybe I watched to many (criminal minds TV shows) but knife murders are very very up close and personal and carries a risk to the perp. Normally means serial killer or gang related -- gun murders are committed by cowards from a safe distance.
