People get stabbed here like anywhere else. They managed to virtually wipe out firearm related injuries and now they are trying to do the same with knives.

I see it as a good thing, no?

You can't guarantee it's going to work but since we have a taxpayer health system then for the price of a website if it stops one person from going to hospital then it has saved money and possibly a life

I'm actually considering becoming a violently and coercively religious martyr-zealot, and moving to the UK. It's now hard to imagine any easier or more advantageous situation in which to exist.

Gaia and the Wisdom Teachings is the new religion. You start off with yoga, and before you know it, you're believing in Reptilians and shit.

What am I going to cook with ?

Edit - what am I going to eat with ? Can't use a knife, can't use a fork (sharp pointy bits) ???

Just say no to safety helmets, they can be used as a concussive weapon.

But this appears to be the actions of a NGO (privately registered domain) to appeal to the millennial mentality of crowd association (#metoo, social media liking etc...). More social engineering because that is what we want...
Why not remove the enablers of knife crime, ie poverty, gang appeals etc... THEN suddenly people will see knifes are a tool.

So if something is an offence that should be enough? No, I applaud them for trying a different tactic. What is there to lose?

Yes it should be enough, society has been brainwashed enough as is.

A man has died after being stabbed to death on Sunday morning

Quote:
Officials are concerned about the uptick in fatal stabbings, fearing there is a dangerous surge in knife crime. ... Last year there was a total of 80 fatal stabbings in the capital - the most in almost a decade.


There were only 24 stabbing deaths in Chicago in 2017 according to heyjackass. You still need to work harder to unseat Chicago's total killings.

Everywhere left gains power the crime rates go up and prosperity level goes down. Why should it be different in UK?

Our newspapers are full of sensationalist stories about how "knife crime is an epidemic" and "stabbings are on the rise" and the one that I found funny: "London murder rate overtakes New York for first time ever after spate of fatal stabbings and shootings" which was for one month when 22 people were killed.

You are willing to assert that you do not care to be one of those few stabbing deaths? You know that just one is one too many.
