Are people in England so brainwashed that they gave a spoon and a butter knife to the police so they wouldn't 'fall' into the wrong hands? Yep! From March 2017 to March 2018, there was over 285 knife, spoon, or butter knife killings in England, while by September 2018 mindbogglingly there were only 20 deaths due to gun violence. It was a good thing that they banned guns not knives & spoons, BULLET DODGED..AHEM!

"A British police station this week lauded themselves with a picture on Twitter designed to showcase their efforts at tackling knife crime - but didn't quite scoop up the coverage they were hoping for thanks to the presence of a rogue spoon in the image."
"There were 285 killings by a knife or sharp instrument in the 12 months ending March 2018, Office for National Statistics analysis shows." https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-47156957
The total tally of murder victims in London had reached 92 by September 2018, with several of them the result of shootings. These include 17-year-old Rhyhiem Ainsworth Barton, who was gunned down in a drive-by shooting near his home in Kennington, South London, on May 5, 2018. 11 other people in the capital were shot dead last year, a Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed. Tanesha Melbourne, 17, Amaan Shakoor, 16, Kelvin Odunuyi, 19, Bulent Kabala, 41, Joseph William-Torres, 20 and Russell Jordan-Jones, 23, all died after they suffered gun wounds.
