First They Came For The Guns...

I don't often "steal" other's posts, but occasionally there are some too good not to share. Like this one from Monkey in the Middle.

First They Came For The Guns...
And took them out of their hands in Great Britain. They promised the population that they would be safe, that crime would reduce to almost nothing. It didn't happen. In fact, crime increased. Crime with knives increased. So now they will ban the knife.

The good news is that if we ever do get that assault rifle ban, followed by a handgun ban, followed by a ban of anything that can shoot bullets, the “Banners” will still have a banner year of banning all the other ways with which people kill other people.

Violent crimes haven’t gone away with the UK’s gun control.
They've actually gone up.

Britons suffer 1,158,957 violent crimes per year, which works out at 2,034 per 100,000 residents. The U.S., meanwhile, has a rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents, which is lower than France’s, at 504.

Instead of gun crime, the UK worries about knife crime. And has been practicing knife control.

Read the rest of the post here to see how they're discussing banning kitchen knives now!
