The letter to the editor from Ian King is silly. [“Northwest Voices: Cutlery ban?” Opinion, Aug. 26.]
Cutlery is only dangerous at very close range, while guns can be used from a distance. Drive-by shootings and bank robberies use guns. I have not heard of a drive-by cutlery robbery.
King does not seem to appreciate the serious situation that Mayor Mike McGinn is addressing.
