Knife crime rose by 22% in England and Wales in 2017, according to the

He wants manufacturers to produce knives with rounded points for
domestic use and those with points to be sold under strict rules.

Or maybe buyers would have to register their sharp-pointed knives, for whatever
good that might do. It all makes sense, I guess, if you think the cause of
“knife crime” is knives.
