Their crime/murder rate isn't that good. In fact, in many ways it's much worse than the U.S., but more than that, they sort of have institutional lying. Like they don't count Scotland or Ireland's murder rate in their own.... and in their own, they don't count murders unless someone is charged, and other tricks like that. They're becoming a full on Socialist Country that lies for agendas.
Since they outlawed the right for people to defend themselves with guns, their murder crime rates shot up (while the U.S.'s fell, during the same period of time). To prove they didn't learn their lesson, since their stabbing rates are like 5-10x ours, they decided that the solution was knife-control. Seriously, don't stop rampant criminal immigration, or punish criminals, it's time to outlaw pointy sticks, and demanding cooling off periods before ordering cutlery (no express delivery for silverware).
While I wish it was a joke, California, UK and Oz (Australia) all have "knife control" to keep the public from having sharpened things. And they're adding more of these laws to protect us, all the time. Never mind that criminals ignore dumb laws by nature of them being criminals, so all the laws can do is punishing the innocent. Politicians are willing to turn law abiding citizens (collectors/practitioners) into criminals, and waste the courts time and money, and distract law enforcement from more serious issues.
They imprison you for flipping off the traffic cameras:
