A lot of progressives here in America are just simply enthralled by how countries in Europe, particularly the United Kingdom, have applied the principles of this horrific ideological system especially when it comes to guns.
The UK banned guns a long while ago, but it seems to have done very little to stop violent crime as a whole. Sure, shootings might be down, but knife attacks have reached insanely highly levels.
How insanely high? High enough that the powers that be in the UK have now started developing “knife control” policies — something liberals here laughed at when conservatives mentioned it, yet here it is — with one judge suggesting filing knives down because they are “too sharp.”
Pay attention, folks. This is where we are headed in the future if we don’t preserve the Second Amendment.
On Sunday, the U.K’s Telegraph reported that Madge proposed a nationwide program “to file down the points of kitchen knives” in order to address the nation’s “soaring knife crime epidemic.”Trending:
According to the Telegraph, the “latest figures show stabbing deaths among teenagers and young adults have reached the highest level for eight years,” noting that overall knife crime had risen 22 percent in 2017.
Madge said that in just the last two months, 77 knife-related “incidents” occurred in Bedfordshire, England.Advertisement - story continues below
Three of those “incidents” resulted in death.
According to The Telegraph, these crimes seem to lack any sort of discernible motive. In fact, a boy was stabbed due to an argument he had years before with someone at his junior high school.
Madge stated the vast majority of the knives being carried by young people are kitchen knives, stating “every kitchen contains lethal knives which are potential murder weapons.”
So, now, this guy wants to stop manufacturers, authorities, and shops from stop selling kitchen knives that are eight-to-ten inches in length in order to help curb these attacks.
Because all of the restrictions and bans on guns worked so well to stop violence, didn’t they?
This is pure insanity. You cannot outlaw tools as a means of stopping or controlling evil. This simply does not work because the problem is the wickedness of the human heart, not the tool itself.
Society has banned all talk of God and traditional morality from schools and other forms of culture. Those values are no longer taught at home, in the classroom, in churches, ect. This is what happens when you remove God and His law as your foundation for truth, justice, and right and wrong.
Banning stuff isn’t going to change anything. It’s just going to make criminals and psychopaths more creative.
How much more of this tomfoolery has to go down before people get it?
