    Laws designed for Hackney do not work in places like Cornwall. Every fisherman, farmer, & gardener carries a knife and is in danger of arrest in these days of no common sense.

    When all the publicity over knife crime started we were told that possession of a knife in public would lead to a mandatory prison sentence. Sadly all too many cases where the offender has been let loose to carry on have been allowewd to occur. If the mandatory prison sentence was to come back it just might act as some sort of deterrent to the idiots who carry knives in public and make the public that bit safer.
