I am  are  creating this petition today due to attack in streatham this weekend to ask the government to setup safety and tighter measures on the way  knives are sold to members of public .And for all retailers to be licensed to sell to knives and for them to be securirty tagged in all there stores to keep our communities safe and knife free.

By doing this simple thing would help reduce the knives being stolen from there stores . 

With the high level of knife related incident we have seen over the last year and level of knife crime we have seen last month as well indicates that something needs to be done about the retailers and platforms sell knives to public. 

As retailer do have duty to ensure that community they serve  is keep safe .

I realise it will not stop incidents happening but it would certainly help reduce a number of incidents happening on our streets .

The punishment for taking someone life by a knife should be hightest sentence that courts can give to ensure that a clear message is send out to to those who commit these crimes you will serve a custodial sentences for your crime .
