Every death on the streets of London is an utter tragedy, and I am deeply concerned about the rise in knife crime over recent years. It is time for a new approach. We must send a strong message that carrying a knife is completely unacceptable, and is more likely to ruin your life than to save it. I hope that today’s summit will help us to harness the knowledge and insights of all those who have experience of knife crime, so we can help rid our communities of this terrible violence.

Knife Crime Summit 2016
[The cure to “knife crime” is to enable the potential victims to own and defend themselves with guns. But apparently the mayor has led a very sheltered life and never hear the admonition to “Never bring a knife to a gun fight.”
But of course this is the path the anti-gun crowd in our country is leading us down.—Joe]
