London Mayor’s war on knives

My whole life, I’ve always wanted to visit London, England.

But not anymore.

If I want to visit a violent city crawling with Islamists where I’m defenseless and afraid, I’ll go to Mogadishu.

The accommodations are probably cheaper than London. And I doubt anybody is going to make me eat black pudding or bangers and mash.

As you’ve probably heard already, London has surpassed New York City in murders.

Knife murders are skyrocketing.

Which is odd because carrying a knife is illegal in the UK.

It’s almost as if murderers don’t give a crap about the law.

Huh. Who knew?

But rather than seek to solve the underlying problem, London’s hapless mayor Sadiq Khan is waging a war on knives.

There’s never a reason to carry a knife?

How about for self-defense?

They never think of that, do they?

Maybe if England stopped letting Islamists pour into their country there would be no reason to carry a knife.

But so long as London welcomes people from violent sh*tholes who refuse to assimilate to a Western city, Londoners should be allowed to protect themselves.

To me, that’s simply common sense.

But then again, I’m one of those gun-happy Americans.

For the record, I live in an area of the US where obtaining a conceal carry permit is virtually impossible. Hell, just getting the pistol permit necessary to simply buy a handgun is onerous in Onondaga County. This may come as a shock to those idiots carrying signs about how easy it is to get a gun. But the application process for the pistol permit alone takes more than a year.

As a result, I carry a folding knife clipped to the inside of my front pocket every time I leave the house.

If I lived in London, I would be breaking the law.

The fact is, in England it is illegal to carry any weapon for self-defense. Knives, guns, Tasers, collapsible tactical batons – nothing is allowed. Because anything that is used as a defensive weapon could also be used offensively. And carrying “offensive” weapons is illegal in the UK.

Hell, you can’t even carry pepper spray.

Why?

Because in the UK pepper spray is classified as a “firearm.”

I’m not sure how they feel about sporks.

London

Well, the last one certainly wouldn’t fly.

Basically, in England you’re a sitting duck.

Now perhaps back when most everyone in the UK shared the same culture, history, traditions and values this wasn’t a big deal.

But that’s not the case anymore.

So maybe instead of cracking down on knives, the UK should crack down on the people who don’t give the hairy ass of a rat about “offensive” weapons bans.

But that’s not going to happen in the present environment, is it?

Instead, Mayor Khan will wage your his against knives while ignoring the underlying problem.

As long as the UK refuses to have a zero tolerance for seventh century barbarians, Khan’s zero tolerance for knife crimes won’t make a damn bit of difference.

And pay attention, America.

Because this is exactly the predicament the American Left wants to put us in as well.

    Onondaga County? It’s probably easier than downstate. I live in Suffolk County which is no cake walk but it’s a piece of cake compared to the People’s Republic of New York City where you are expected to sue the City when the ignore your application for a target permit.

    I, too, always wanted to visit England, but not anymore. Ireland maybe.

    Knives are just part of the problem. Hundreds of people yearly choke on food. Food needs to be banned. And their enablers, the fork and spoon, must be brought to justice!

    Dianny,
    I concur with this and think you are definitely on to something. Having lived in England for 3 years in the early 2000s, there was a pronounced legal bias against self-defense. It was almost as though the legal system was designed to overthrow any idea of self-sufficiency and well-being. They wanted the people clamorous to Big Brother to solve all their worries. I think somehow the people missed that 1984 was a cautionary tale and not an example of good governance.

    I did have one problem in your article. I don’t usually quibble at typos, as I feel if I can make out what was meant than communication was successful, but the line “Instead, Mayor Khan will wage your his against knives while ignoring the underlying problem.” defeated me. I have a feeling there was a text-to-speech or auto-correct issue or you edited something and didn’t quite get the words to where you were looking for.

    Sadly only too true, in Britain even a tube of toothpaste can be considered an offensive weapon!!!
