A box cutter is one of those tools. Many people have them, and businesses that need to open boxes tend to issue them to employees. They’re nice because they’re good at opening boxes, but are generally safer than knives. But then again, as we learned on the September 11th attacks they can also be used as weapons.
A South Korean man was arrested after allegedly attacking subway passengers with a box-cutter, injuring seven of them, police said.
The man, identified by his family name Yoo, was heading from Euijeongbu to Seoul when the incident happened, Yonhap news agency reported Saturday.
South Korea has a very low “Gun Death” rate…..but we NEED box cutters, so maybe we should just ban boxes???
