Eh? I take it you never do anything in the kitchen? I have half a dozen or
so knives that could kill easily - and I'm one of the most amateurish of
cooks.

I have only one knife that could perhaps do that. Lots of kitchen knive designs
are not ideally shaped for murder. That may even be intentional.

The Vermon murder rate (1.5/100,000) is exactly the same as in the UK.
Yet in Vermont citizens don't even need a permit to carry a concealed
weapon.

For violent crime the figures are truly shocking.

UK      -  2300   per 100,000
Vermont -   119.7 per 100,000

The US murder rate as a whole is BTW four times the UK average. So it's
misleading to simply compare the number of people killed with guns in
each country. The evidence suggests that in the UK people simply pick up
something else to kill people with, and there's no hard evidence that
lack of legal guns is protecting citizens. Indeed the Vermont data
suggests that guns protect US citizens from criminals to a significant
extent.

"An armed society is a polite society" certainly seems to work in
Vermont.
