    There's also a fencing foil (where they've cut off the the blunt end in the picture), several bbq forks, a sharpening rod, and a letter opener.

    Prior to posting I searched the forum to find out if anyone had posted this.
    It's remarkable, how the search results demonstrated the situation in the UK getting worse and worse.
    Stifling of the free speech was (and is) closely following the tightening noose of tool control.

    If they get into a bind again and need to arm their people to defend the island I vote for not sending them any of our guns this time.

    Not even so much as a Red Ryder. They can stew in their own pee.

    Here's another gem, this time from the Lancashire Constabulary.
    https://www.lancashire.police.uk/help-advice/safer-communities/knife-crime/


    Don't be a victim

    If you feel you are in immediate danger from knife crime there are a number of steps you can take to protect yourself:

    • Move away from the situation towards a public place (shop, house, restaurant etc.) as quickly as possible.
    • Make as much noise as you can.
    • Instead of carrying a knife, carry a personal alarm.
    • Don't fight back.
    In 1990, Kleck analyzed 378 cases of rape, and conclusively demonstrated that any resistance reduces the rate of completed rape from 48% to at least 25%.
    https://www.researchgate.net/publica...and_Resistance

    Kleck:
    Further, both offering advice when it could be hurtful and remaining silent when the advice could be helpful entails risks to victims.
    Shame on the UK police. They are either blissfully unaware, and therefore incompetent, or well-informed, and thus deliberately betray their people.
    But then again, the people appear to support these policies, by and large.

    I believe that in the UK, defending yourself can land you in jail. I remember an article about an elderly guy who fought off a mugger with an umbrella and he wound up being arrested. A really sick society.
