Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
England has comprehensive gun control, the kind Democrats only fantasize about. London has a higher murder rate than New York City. Not with guns, with knives. The Mayor of London calls for knife control. When that fails to solve the problem, I expect it will be club control, lead pipe control, steel-toed-work-boot control and eventually, clenched fist control.
London police already have started on construction tool control:
How long until the average Briton wonders whether the problem is the tool, or the user?
Since they are reverting to Middle Ages rules and customs, including the barbarian hordes invading and attempting to conquer by jihad and systematic rape which the police from Rochdale to Rotherham are too politically correct to prevent, it’s time to propose Middle Ages solutions: all weapons must be peace bonded inside the city limits. Nobles and their retainers will be allowed to carry all normal weapons everywhere except in the presence of the Lord High Mayor, but they must peace bond their swords, guns, battle axes, and lances with a bright ribbon to signify that they will not strike first. Of course, in the Middle Ages the same rules would apply to the invading hordes, so that will be a welcome change to the law abiding public. The penalty for violating the bond is death, sure and swift, a consequence the invaders remember from the lands they left.
Time to be the strong horse.
