"London Mayor Sadiq Khan targets knives as murder rate spikes: 'There is never a reason to carry a knife'

London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced a tough crackdown on knives Sunday as the city reels from a spike in stabbings that have led its number of homicides to top New York City's for two straight months.

He tweeted: “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.”

The tweet also included an action plan to boost police power and prevent future violence (Rugian note: this includes an expansion of the city's stop and frisk program)."

I heard once that right after the Chinese revolution only one kitchen knife was allowed for ten families.

There are plenty of legitimate reasons to carry a knife. If you are going to restrict public carry of knives, you should base it on the length of knife. A 2-3 inch pocket knife is not that likely to cause fatalities. Also, the type of knife should come into account. If it's a swiss army for instance, chances are you can't pull it out and open it during a fight.

I think it's common sense that no one wants assault knives, fully automatic knives, or knives with bump stocks on the streets.

I had a keychain knife that I had to go across the street and hide it before I could enter a government building.
