The reason knives can't be banned is that they're too prevalent. Everyone has at least one. Rather than this being a point for less gun control, as the gun enthusiasts argue, this is an argument for making guns less prevalent.

I'm sure the cops are looking at the guy who found her, among others.

Yeah, right! Ban knives? She was attacked inside her apartment! Are you suggesting knives she be banned from inside apartments too? Let's hope the perpetrator and the motive are discovered soon.

RIP... time for Japan to outlaw carrying knives, if it doesn't already do so.
