The Blade?

We aren't used to breaking stories here at Crime Spree. But for Christ's sake, why hasn't anyone in America touched the almost hilarious British War on Knives? The US Mainstream Media hasn't touched this one to our knowledge. Lord knows we've given them plenty of lead time, we've been linking to stories on this for weeks.
It's a natural for conservatives here: they got rid of all the guns in England, and, well, wouldn't you know it: people are still violent! It's almost as if, crazy as it sounds, human beings have a genetic disposition towards agressive behavior. But that's just nuts, right? That wouldn't work unless human beings somehow evolved in a state of nature where strength and violence would aid you in spreading you genes. So it must be the weapons' fault. Yes, of course. Best to ban guns. And knives. And, next up, baseball bats.

Are we pouring on the sarcasm a little thick?
