At first glance, you might assume that was a headline straight out of the satirical website The Babylon Bee.
But liberal lunacy regarding gun control took its next logical step – knife control.
A series of stabbings in London and a rising murder rate have prompted London mayor Sadiq Khan to get tough – not on those actually carrying out the attacks, but on the weapons used to carry them out.
Because in a liberal’s mind, it’s always the inanimate objects that are evil, not the criminals or terrorists.
“There is never a reason to carry a knife,” Khan said. “Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law.”
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. https://t.co/XILUvIFLOW

And here you thought once they were done targeting guns they’d be content and leave you alone, right? While today will be guns, tomorrow will be knives, next week will be any blunt instruments.
Today it will be your right to bear arms, tomorrow your right to free speech, next week your freedom altogether.

The concept of banning knives is next-level laughable. Naturally, Twitter responded to the mayor in kind with laughter and snark …

There are lots of good reasons to carry a knife. One is that you’ve filled your once peaceful city with stabby gangs. https://t.co/l22s2OOGg4

Yea, sad but true.
Part of Khan’s plan to implement ‘common-sense knife measures’ is giving law enforcement the ability to stop and frisk anyone they believe to be a threat.
“The Met Police has introduced targeted patrols with extra stop and search powers for areas worst-affected by knife crime,” according to the London mayor’s post.
Wait, does that still apply to suspected radical Islamists? ‘Cause here in New York, we’ve been told any actions along those lines are racist. Seems like Khan might be calling for profiling.
Why is the mayor concerned about a rise in these attacks anyway? This is, after all, a guy who once said terrorism is just a normal part of life and we should all get used to it.
After a bomb attack in New York City, Khan said such attacks on innocent civilians are “part and parcel of life in a big city.”
Bombs are just part of life, but knives … knives are the scourge of society and anyone carrying them must meet the full force of the law.
You can pry my knives from my cold, dead, really hungry for a sandwich, hands, Mr. Khan.
