Damian's Law: Mandatory sentencing for knife-carriers
Petition Background (Preamble):
At present under Scottish Criminal Law, there is no mandatory sentencing for persons found carrying knives or other dangerous weapons in public. What possible defence can an individual give for carrying a knife at night in towns and cities across the country? And yet this practice goes on, detected but often unpunished.
A change in the law would be a major step towards eradicating the knife-culture that prevails in our society. It will allow ordinary law-abiding citizens to start to reclaim the streets from the knife-wielding thug.
We support Damian's Law: Mandatory sentencing for knife-carriers.
