Anyone who thinks that gun grabbers will stop their campaigns aimed at disarming the citizens of any country once they have confiscated all the firearms except those owned by the military, police and bodyguards of the rich and famous is blind to the incremental nature of turning the citizenry into an unarmed nation of sheep ready for enslavement.
Britain has a history of turning citizens into subjects. Those who fought the American Revolution were quite correct in making the break absolute as the practice of disarming citizens has extended to those subjects living in what is called the Commonwealth.

Those bins will be in cities all over the U.K. as this call for people to turn in pointed knives continues.
