London Mayor Hints At Knife Ban As Murder Rate Soars Past New York

London Mayor Targets Knives As Murder Rate Soars

In London, Where they Only Have 51 legally owned guns, the murder rate has soared past the rate of murder in New York city.  This, despite the fact that New York has millions of more legally possessed guns and likely tens of thousands more that are illegally posessed.

In wake of the non-stop stabbing murders in London, mayor Sadiq Khan is now pursuing a ban on knives.  This is not a joke and you are not reading the ‘Onion.’ This is absolutely real as absurd as it sounds.

Recently, the UK doctors have called for an all-out ban on knives with sharp tips and a ban on home deliveries of knives has been imposed.  You also have to be 18 years of age in the UK to purchase any kind of knife.

Most of the city’s murder victims have been by stabbings, If the bloody trend continues, London will far surpass the 130 murders in 2017

In February and March, London hit the unwanted milestone of recording more homicides than New York, the first time in modern history, as Fox News previously reported.

The cities are roughly the same size, with more than 8 million people, and have similar extremes of poverty and wealth, but London has never recorded more murders in a year than the U.S. metropolis. New York had 290 homicides in 2017, the lowest number in decades.
