Socialism is ALL ABOUT sharing, innit, Govner?)
For the 2nd month in a row, London has had more murders than NY City. This is one of those ideas the American patriotic 2nd Amendment crowd used to discuss maybe 10 to 25 years ago coming to the headlines on Drudge. (He linked to this article on The Daily Wire entitled "London's Mayor Declares Intense New 'Knife Control' Policies To Stop Epidemic Of Stabbings".) Be warned that there is a large photo of the new Moslem London Mayor on top. That guy comes into play here in this disussion.
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.We Americans were laughed at for the simple very-common-sense memes (though they weren't "memes" back in the 1990's) that "If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.", "God made men and women - Sam Colt made them equal", and "Next thing they'll have to do is start on knife control ..." although the latter didn't read as well on a bumper sticker, granted. These common-sense ideas are true, but it sure takes the anti-freedom crowd a long time to admit anything. They could rightfully be called learning-disabled, but as a voluntary form of stupidity, not genetic, we have no sympathy for the stupid fucks.
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.
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.
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.That's pretty much most of the short article so you don't have to look at the smarmy London
Hahahaaa! Hahahahahaaaaaa!Oh, and
WTF did we tell you 20 years ago, you British twits! I'm not one of those "I told you so" guys, but dammit, I! TOLD! YOU! SO!OK, now, one could very rightly point out that the major increase in violence up through murder in formerly-Great formerly Britain is due to the large influx of Moslem and other foreign people into the land over the last 20 years (especially). Yes, with 98% white British, as in the past, I doubt we'd see these numbers. However, how does that negate this example of Peak Stupidity? If the Brits had kept their guns AND not let so large an influx of un-assimilable foreigners in, there also wouldn't be very many murders. One can easily compare white murder (and other violence) rates, in the US, especially in areas that are (or were) almost all white and get the same numbers as old-timey England. It's the people, stupid! [/bizarro-Clinton]
"If it's JUST the people then does it even matter whether we have gun-control or not?" is the next question. Yeah, well, if you want the ability to keep the government beast somewhat wary and have a fighting chance to stop it's policies, yes, you need as much firepower as you have the money for. Oh, that's not to mention that "when knives are outlawed, only outlaws will have knives."
A couple of last points here:
I guess it's a good thing the British don't eat a lot of steak, right? I mean, who needs one of those assault knives anyway, when a butter knife will do? To stem the violence, I think that even the butter knives should be limited, maybe to a purchase of one per month. How many do you need!? After all, it ain't like the servants still steal the silverware like in Dickensonian times. The current stuff is not worth losing one's butler position for, as it's just cheap China-made crap, which, come to think of it, probably matches pretty well with the China. Much of the China nowadays is, well, errrr, just cheap China-made crap.
Regarding the mayor of London, now, I watched a short clip with Mr. Nigel Farage, British patriot, debating some crowd of smarmy British elite jackasses on a panel, with that per-Mayoral Khan on the panel. Man, he comes off as one smarmy jackass (and I'm really coming to like that word, oh, both "smarmy" and "jackass".) It's one thing to listen to the young people of various diverse roots talk in that posh English, as mentioned here with regard to Ann Coulter's audience at the Oxford Union. It's another thing for some Moslem sharia-prone smarmy adult jackass to talk like that. You'll really want to punch him, mark my words. (Yes, you CAN mark them, as I was one of the guys saying "pretty soon they'll be saying we need knife control, hahahaa!".)
