An epidemic of stabbings and acid attacks in London has gotten so bad that London mayor Sadiq Khan is announcing broad new “knife control” policies designed to keep these weapons of war out of the hands of Londoners looking to cause others harm.

London’s Mayor Declares Intense New ‘Knife Control’ Policies To Stop Epidemic Of Stabbings

The police will now stop and frisk people believed to be carrying knives.

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 dollars 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.

The mayor took to Twitter to announce his new policies.

Strangely enough, Khan is responsible for decreasing the number of stop-and-searches, having previously declared the tactic racist and potentially Islamophobic. It’s also not clear what local Londoners will now use to cut their food.

Parliament is also set to take up heavy “knife control” legislation when it resumes this week. The U.K. government is expected to introduce a ban on online knife sales and home knife deliveries, declare it “illegal to possess zombie knives and knuckledusters in private” — “zombie knives” are those defined as being manufactured for the purpose of being used as a person-to-person weapon — and ban sales of caustic materials to anyone under the age of 18, the Independent reports.

London has seen a dramatic uptick in murder rates, surpassing even New York City in the number of homicides every month since the beginning of 2018. It has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world, and, technically, knives carried “without good reason” are off limits to anyone under the age of 18.

    For years, Brits carrying any implement in public without a good reason (such as a screwdriver) are subject to questioning or arrest. Americans who think that complete global disarmament is not a goal are deceived. But, it’s going to be difficult to duct-tape our bare hands. Rah, Damain!

    We’ve had knife problems in London for over 60 years and the increase in knife crime since guns were outlawed. Khan instigated the reduction of “Stop and Search” because they were inherently racist. Now bringing them back. This is the consequence of serious flaws in the lack of rights to defend one self. Let’s check a few facts: criminals carry knives and and or guns. Citizens don’t. 10% of all murders in the England and Wales involved firearms. The rate of body harm from assault are over ten times higher than the USA. Why – UK citizens have very little options when comes to self defense. This is what we need to avoid at all costs here in the USA.

    So, Your not a load to protect yourself. Just roll over and DIE!!! Anybody who want to do harm is going to do it. If your not aloud to protect yourself witch is what i was told in the UK. You have to try to run away or call for help. Let me know how this workout for the person that needs to defend themselves.
    I am a USCCA Member and well trained in defense and fire arms. I will always defend and protect my family, myself and those around me. Pretty soon our army’s will not be aloud defend themselves.

    The UK “self defense” laws are anathema to us. They are allowed to defend themselves against bodily attacks, though I’m unsure to what extent. They are not allowed “self defense” against property crimes.

    People hear all sorts of things, these are the facts about the law in England regarding knives & the use of force:

    It’s illegal to:
    Sell a knife to anyone under 18, unless it has a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less.
    Carry a knife in public without good reason, unless it has a folding blade with a cutting edge 3 inches long or less.
    Carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife.
    Use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife).
    A person may use such force as is reasonable in the circumstances for the purposes of:
    self-defence; or
    defence of another; or
    defence of property; or
    prevention of crime; or
    lawful arrest.
    We ARE allowed to protect ourselves, but this is where the law is unclear. We can use REASONABLE force. But there is no clear definition. It does mean, however, that we can use whatever force is required if we believe our lives are in danger. It also means that if we knock some one out, we must not then stamp on their heads. reasonable force.

    PC politicians suffer from brain damage caused by head insertion into a tight sphincter, either their own or somebody else’s. To depend on them for our safety means we do the same. Teddy Roosevelt left us with some words of wisdom that I think are inherent in the SDTS,

    Speak softly and CARRY A BIG STICK; you will go far.
    Do WHAT YOU CAN, WITH WHAT YOU HAVE, WHERE YOU ARE.
    Don’t hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but NEVER HIT SOFT!

    Our safety is our responsibility! I am grateful to the SDTS for making our safety more likely!

    So the criminals, who do not obey the law now, will obediently obey the ‘no knives’ law?
    To paraphrase the proverb: “When knives are outlawed, only outlaws will have knives.”
    And, if more people die from automobile fatalities, we should outlaw automobiles . . .
