Wait a minute

How can this even be possible? I mean, I thought they had laws in the U.K. banning people from carrying knives in public, right?

Twenty teenagers have been stabbed to death in London alone this year. Last week, six people died in knife-related attacks in a single 24 hour period.

[...]

In the early hours of Sunday morning, a 23-year-old woman was found in the street in Cannock, Staffordshire, suffering from stab wounds. She is in a stable condition and two men were arrested in connection with the incident.

A 15-year-old boy has been detained over the stabbing of a 20-year-old in a skatepark, who was knifed in the legs, according to North Wales Police.

Another 20-year-old man is recovering in hospital after being stabbed five times outside a seaside pub in Blackpool. A 48-year-old man has been charged with attempted murder.

Meanwhile detectives were continuing to question two people following the fatal stabbing of a father-of-two, named locally as Johnny Derrick, in Bristol.

I mean, it's like the criminals aren't even paying attention to the law! Simply astonishing, isn't it?
