Over the past decade, China’s technological surveillance systems have strengthened the CCP’s grip on control over its citizens.
Its facial recognition systems can track most of its citizens and fine them for minor infractions like jaywalking, but people aren’t the only thing the CCP is tracking.
Since 2017, China has been tracking kitchen knives by putting QR codes on them.
Knives are predominantly tracked in the Xinjiang region, which is largely home to the Uyghur ethnic group.

A knife seller in Aksu City, interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, said he has spent thousands of dollars on mechanical machines that put a customer’s photo, ethnicity, ID number and address into a QR code. The blade of a knife.
CCP claims to place QR codes on knives that will return the knife to its owner if it is used for a crime.

Many China analysts believe that the QR code is being used to prevent any uprising against the government.
Anyone who advocates banning guns in the United States should be careful what they wish for because their kitchen knives may one day be tracked down if the 2nd Amendment is ever repealed.
