London Mayor Sadiq Khan has decided to enact serious “knife control” policies after the murder rate in London has skyrocketed in recent months. There were 23 murders in London for the month of March.  They already have rigid gun control (and some of the murders were people who were shot, but I digress).

According to  Emily Zanotti  at The Daily Wire,

The “tough, immediate” measures involve an incredible police crackdown, a ban on home deliveries of knives and acid, and expanding law enforcement stop-and-search powers so that police may stop anyone they believe to be a threat, or planning a knife or acid attack.

Khan announced Friday that the city has created a “violent crime taskforce of 120 officers” tasked with rooting out knife-wielding individuals in public spaces, and is pumping nearly $50 million into the Metropolitan Police department so that they can better arm themselves against knife attacks. He’s also empowering the Met Police to introduce “targeted patrols with extra stop and search powers for areas worst-affected,” according to a statement.

London is targeting youth and gang violence for their method to lower the crime rate. You can read about their project in full here. Many of the victims and perpetrators of the violence are youth.

The issue became part of a Twitter comment-a-thon.

Maybe you should have considered who you were allowing into the country first, before imposing more restrictions, on both speech and ordinary objects. You funneled wolves into the sheep paddock, and then got tough on the sheep if they caused a fuss.


Next they will ban martial arts and surgically remove your muscles for you.

Here you go, kids. For posterity.

Oh it is no parody…Knives in London have become self aware and able to seek out targets and become lethal projectiles…

So if confronted with a violent attacker in UK… you’re only option is to die like a good subject?

Criminals by definition do not obey the law, even laws prohibiting concealed weapons. What you’re essentially doing is enabling or even encouraging criminals, by removing all barriers to submission by victims. You are essentially CREATING victims.

Just a reminder: The UK is the reason the US has a 2nd Amendment.

You know, last time your country tried to disarm people, America won our freedom because we will not allow tyrants to take away any defense. Clearly you don’t seem to understand that criminals are not called so because they follow the law.
