KNIFE CONTROL: UK to Ban Home Deliveries of KNIVES, BRASS KNUCKLES, ACID

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.09.18

The UK government unveiled its new “knife control” measures Sunday following months of escalating violence and skyrocketing murder rates; banning all residents from having knives delivered to their homes and preventing sales of “acid” to anyone under 18 years of age.

The new legislation -expected to be voted on within weeks- also bans the possession of so-called ‘Zombie Knives,’ elaborate stabbing weapons that can be over one feet in length as well as brass knuckles.

“This government has always stood for law and order and to tackle violent crime effectively, robust legislation and powerful law enforcement must be in place,” said the UK Home Secretary.

“That’s why we will introduce a new offensive weapons bill that includes a new offence of possessing acid in public without good reason, prevents sales of acids to under 18s and stops knives being sent to people’s homes when bought online,” added the official.

The escalating murder tally means the homicide rate in London has risen by 40% in just three years; the stark opposite to New York City’s crime statistics which have fallen by nearly 90% since Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s harsh crackdown in the 1990s.
