Well it finally happened, in London where they disarmed their law abiding citizens, violent criminals are now so out of control that London without guns has more homicides than New York has with guns. Apparently London's criminals didn't realize they were supposed to stop killing each other once the guns were gone, and moved on to knives. London Mayor Sadiq Khan has announced a crackdown on knives in response to the rising homicide rate. Per the mayor, "No excuses: there is never a reason to carry a knife. Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law." Folks I couldn't make this stuff up if I tried.
In Britain, its illegal to carry a knife longer than three inches in public "without good reason" punishable with up to four years in prison and an "unlimited fine." Think about that, you need a "good reason" to bring a small kitchen knife to the park, and don't try to give them any BS about needing it to cut up that fruit you've got with you, they will see right through that. Are they all insane?
I know they are just realizing there is no real link between homicidal criminals desire to kill, and gun laws, but I would think by now they would quit targeting the tools they use, especially when they are everyday items. It's the homicidal people STUPID, not the tools they use. Next are they going to outlaw baseball bats and shoe laces that they might be used for garrotes, after all no one needs shoe laces, velcro works just fine.
