A FULL BAN ON HARMFUL SUBSTANCES (ACID)

A FULL BAN ON HARMFUL SUBSTANCES (ACID)

The UK Government should introduce immediate and emergency measures to ban all substances that have the potential to cause severe or life changing injuries. The ban should apply to all shops and online retailers so that these substances can't be purchased without a licence.

In addition any person who carries out an acid attack should be given a full life sentence instead of GBH.

Why is this important?

There has been a great increase in the UK of acid attacks on innocent individuals. Those people have suffered severe burns all over their bodies with substantial facial disfigurement. The injuries the victims have are life changing and have a severe negative impact on both physical and mental health.

The purpose of these attackers is to spread terror and fear amongst the general public causing people not to leave their homrs and changing their daily lifestyles. It's vital that the government introduces a strong ban on such substances.

Reasons for signing

  • The very thought of hurling acid into the face of someone walking down the street makes me feel sick and that is how everyone should feel. Ban the sale of corrosive substances on the open market and enforce the requirement of a license to buy- available only to senior professionals is advisable.
  • There is no justification for leniency or 'civil liberty' for such evil idiots. Make them pay severely for their random criminality. Consider the victims past, present and future. Protect society.
  • Protect the life of innocent people
