Minimum 5-year sentence for knife possession and 10-years for use of a knife
We want the Government to introduce minimum sentences for carrying/possession of a knife in public, and for using a knife.
The Government should introduce a minimum sentence of 5 years for possession, and a minimum of 15 years for use of a knife to cause harm to another person. Too many knife crimes are happening at the moment across the UK and especially in my home town of derby. Enough is enough.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
