Tory MP says every knife sold in UK should have GPS tracker 'fitted in the handle'


             MP for North Cornwall Scott Mann, the genius behind this idea.

No, this isnt a joke. This is what a British Member of Parliament is seriously proposing when he was debating UK’s “knife crime” problem.

Again, not a meth-crazed bum living under a bridge, but an elected British Tory MP, you know, the people that are supposed to be “conservatives” and “on your side”.
Tory MP says every knife sold in UK should have GPS tracker 'fitted in the handle'
Scott Mann said ‘If you’re carrying it around you had better have a bloody good explanation, obvious exemptions for fishing etc,’.
The proposal was suggested as a potential means of dealing with increasing levels of knife crime in the UK.
He said: “Every knife sold in the UK should have a GPS tracker fitted in the handle.”
“It’s time we had a national database like we do with guns. If you’re carrying it around you had better have a bloody good explanation, obvious exemptions for fishing etc.”
Just let that sink for a minute.

Seriously proposing a knife having a GPS attacked to it. He also wants a national database "like we do with guns".

Every single knife would cost at least 100 bucks. Every. Single. One.
You would have to CHARGE your knife.

Police would constantly be going after you every time you had a BBQ outdoors or forgot to charge your knife.

Last time I checked. People in freaking prison make shanks and knives rather easily. Whats stopping a criminal from grabbing any piece of scrap metal and making his own non-GPS registered knife?

Is this GPS knife dishwasher approved? Make that 200 USD per knife.

This man gets PAID (well north of 100,000 USD a year, plus a pile of benefits) for saying idiotic things such as these.

Again, this is coming from the Conservative (Tory) party, supposed to be the Right in United Kingdom.

Oh, he's also a brave man that wants to ban water as well since it nearly killed him once (he doesnt know how to swim)

Again, NO I am not kidding. This a a real person that exists in this planet and is an elected politician.

Loss of works as to how stupid this is.
Right up there with people that want to ban ALL sharp objects.
Have to end it there or I'll start ranting.

I'm guessing he owns stock in the company that will provide tiny gps units.

Good Idea! Most MPs couldn't find their ass in a blizzard. The GPS in the handle will locate their ass because that is where one of my knives will go.

Can you imagine how many batteries will be required to power all of these GPS units should this be enacted ? How will they be able to tell is someone transfers the GPS unit to another ?

So many what ifs . . .
