Banur, I imagine most robbers would be deterred by the relative difficulty of committing a robbery with a knife compared to a gun, but I can't back it up. What do you think?
That`s not to say we don`t have robberies here. They are just a lot less dangerous, seing as the only guns involved belong to the police.

In my country, where we have weapons control, the situation would have played out like this: Robber doesn't have gun and doesn`t attempt stupid robbery. I doubt that. The robber wants to rob and he will get a weapon to increase his leverage. Not being able to get a gun will not stop him to utilize a knive or whatever is available to him.
