Knives, clubs, and sharpened wood seized by police in UK
DEADLY weapons were seized by police as a crackdown on violent behaviour got under way in Inverclyde. Officers carried out 186 searches and uncovered 10 weapons during swoops over the weekend. They targeted ?hot spots? and stopped and searched gangs of young people acting suspiciously.
During the searches they confiscated:
Four lock knives
One Stanley knife
One kitchen knife
Two baton-style clubs
Three bits of wood that had been fashioned into weapons.
Greenock police Inspector Charlie Paul said: "The fact we got 10 weapons out of more than 180 searches is a good result."
This article has inspired me to rename my "Gun Control" category to Arms Control. Because guns aren't the only weapons that matter.
