If Only They Had Knife Control

Kitchen knives used in domestic threats, violence Oh, sorry, they do have knife control. Just not enough. Does anyone need more than one kitchen knife? Maybe we should limit purchases to one knife per month.

On another note, it seems that restraining orders are also worthless in New Zealand. The existence of the court order didn't stop this attack.
[The bad guy] broke into the house anyway and found the woman hiding inside. He punched her until she fell, and then kicked her, and told her he was going to kill her.

He threatened her with two knives from the kitchen and stabbed one of them into the floor beside her.
She got away, but it wasn't because the police arrived. Relying on the system doesn't seem to work in NZ any more than it works here.
