Northamptonshire Police shows what happens once your guns are gone

Police in Northamptonshire are hoping to take hundreds of dangerous knives off the streets with the start of a month-long knife amnesty, launched today.

During March, anyone can drop off a knife in a designated ‘blade bin’ without fear of prosecution.
The mobile police station will be in specific locations over the coming weeks with one of the bins, listed below.

Knifes can be dropped into one of these bins, or a scheduled appointment can be made by calling101, and arranging for a police officer to come and take the knife away.

The campaign is part of Operation Limit, the force’s crackdown on violent crime, and also forms part of the national ‘Save a life’ campaign being run nationally.

Blades from forces across the country will be melted down to create an angel statue in Trafalgar Square in memory of those who have lost their lives to knife crime.

The sculptor, Alfie Bradley, said the statue would show ‘the emotion and pain of using knives’.

Took their guns and ask for their knives. Smdh. Knives don't cut like guns don't kill. The idiots around here would cheer if the police took our guns and asked for this. No need for guns unless your a thug! Right Wicomico?
