He added: "Today's figures also show that the vast majority of killings involving knives are carried out indoors by perpetrators under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and not on our streets.

HOMICIDE STATISTICS

79% of killers were under the influence of alcohol or drugs
88% knew their victim
64% of killings happened in houses
63% of victims were killed with a sharp instrument
79% of victims were men

"Let me be crystal clear - tackling knife crime is an absolute priority for this government and Scotland's prosecutors and courts have my backing in using the full force of the law to punish anyone who carries or uses a knife.

"Tough enforcement backed by education is key to tackling knife crime.

"Ending Scotland's knife culture is not going to be an easy task - every incident or life lost, as these tragic cases show, is one too many. However, we are working hard to tackle the problem across the country and there will be absolutely no let up in our efforts."

Knife Crime? Gun Crime? Gun Culture? Knife Culture? Blame the instrument!

You don't NEED a knife. Have the butcher cut your haggis or cod into small pieces.

It seems to me that alcohol and drugs seems to be the main factor. Just like mental illness and mass killings seem to be related.

    An ever stronger relationship: every single mass killer is male.

    Not to be a traitor to my gender, but there definitely seems to be a correlation between testosterone and murder.

    One answer is to require every adult female to carry a loaded gun at all times, with no males being allowed to carry guns ever.

    Many people are just animals. They have not evolved. A civilized male will not do such a thing.

    Not necessarily true. Until recently, when tribal systems prevailed, men and nations were constantly at war, where killing each other was normal. You had to get past the men to get to the women and children. Now it is different.

    Here is a list of women serial killers/mass murderers

    It is also believed that in our country, that mothers kill kids under 5 more often than fathers.

    Then of course there is this 41 year old Russian mother of two who went around and killed 17 pensioners by breaking into their houses and bashing their skulls in with a hammer or axe. Her excuse-her husband Yuri didn't give her money to buy vodka.
