Maybe when they lock us all up in padded cells we'll finally be safe.
I, for one, believe that it's not the objects that cause the violence-it's the people who use those objects. Unfortunately my viewpoint seems to be rather ignored.

The karetela is still in vogue, at least in Kalentong

Seriously, even in the Philippines kitchen knives are weapons of opportunity that have been used not only in crimes of passion, but in murders, robberies and hostage situations too. And let's not forget the ever-popular Philippine bolo, which is an even more lethal offensive weapon.
Regulating the sale of long pointed knives in not the solution however. People can produce makeshift knives from other flat pieces of iron, just ask the inmates at the local jail. Making people more accountable for their actions and assuring that citizens have effective means to defend themselves would be more potent safeguards.

Next they'll go after harsh language,
