After knife attack, New Zealand adopts ‘knife control’ policy, removes knives from supermarket shelves

DM

New Zealand truly is the land of sheep. Something has happened there, a mass psychological disturbance that has the populace supporting a government that reacts hysterically to perceived threats. For one, there’s locking down an entire country and isolating it from the rest of the world (and thereby slowing the spread of herd immunity), as if the virus would simply skip the isolated archipelago. Now, with few Kiwis having recovered from COVID and herd immunity nowhere near, cases are skyrocketing. […] With its human population imitating its more numerous sheep neighbors, New Zealand now is making real a joke that has been told for years. In the past, Second Amendment–supporters have joked that if guns are outlawed, people will just turn to knives. “What are you going to do? Outlaw knives?” New Zealand has answered “yes!” OAN reports: Knives and scissors have been removed from supermarket shelves in New Zealand after a recent stabbing attack. Supermarket chain Countdown said on Saturday, a partial “knife control” would be in effect for several weeks to prevent stabbing attacks going forward. […] What’s next? Banning rope because it can be used to strangle people?
