Review the laws concerning knife crime

Petition Details

Make the laws so severe if you injure or kill somebody using a knife.
Using a knife should mean life people are scared to walk the streets or enjoy themselves

Additional Information

I feel there is an imbalance in our law system the punishment and the powers the police have is far to weak .
I feel that if the punishment is so severe then these young people in gangs might just think again about carrying weapons or giving in to peer pressure to commit a crime.
We have armed forced veterans living on streets homeless why not set up camps give these service men/women jobs and put these offenders in them where they can learn discipline and be educated.
