As you may or may not know, banning guns dramatically reduces crime. Because if there’s one thing we all know it’s that criminals follow laws.
With that kind of sound reasoning, it makes perfect sense that the United Kingdom would enforce a strict gun policy. In fact, in order to obtain a gun in the UK, you must apply then submit to a number of interviews and even an inspection of your property and even then it must be deemed that you have a good reason to own the firearm.
Even approximately 90 percent of London’s police force do not carry guns. It would be funny, if it wasn’t real.
But hey, the Brits are protecting themselves because, you know guns kill and if you limit guns, you limit the amount of murder/crime, or as they would have you believe.
Well, recently London has seen an absurd surge in the amount of deadly knife attacks. According to the “failing” New York Times, 50 people have been the victims of fatal knife attacks since the beginning of the year.
But keep in mind, if you get rid of the object, crime/murder will go away and criminals will magically follow the laws. Anyway, this brings us to Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London.
Khan, using all of his brainpower, has said it will now become virtually impossible to own a knife in his city.
No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife. Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law. https://t.co/XILUvIFLOW

Again, it would be hilarious if it wasn’t real.
Dude, must have a tough time with sarcasm. When people mockingly said “ban knives,” it wasn’t a serious policy suggestion, this genius must have thought otherwise. And here, I always thought it was the Germans who didn’t have a sense of humor.
Like banning guns didn’t stop murders, I don’t think limiting banning knifes will help much, either.
Just think, if they come for your knifes, what’s next? Your spoon? Your chopsticks? The always confusing sporks?
