weapon of choice with little consequences compared to handgun
Perfectly legal yet deadly weapon for these hooligans to carry without repercussion, usually even after they stab someone, they are back on the street in a flash.
I think I’d rather be shot than stabbed if push came to shove.
The ghetto is getting more dangerous by the day, and not only after dark, now it’s even dangerous in broad daylight. It certainly makes no sense that they closed the police office there.
