So, Will London Be Outlawing Pencils Next?

Written by Andrew Linn on April 16, 2018

Due to the fact that London’s crime rate has surpassed that of New York City, London’s Muslim Mayor Sadiq Khan has announced a crackdown on knives within the city limits, a policy that the British Government plans to implement. Never mind the fact that the increase in crime is in partly due to Britain gun control laws, as well as an increase in the number of Muslims living in Britain (a significant portion of them engaging in jihad and calling for sharia law). By the way, under sharia law, non-Muslims are not allowed to own weapons. Needless to say, Muslims are likely to support any type of ban on weapons, especially since they get a majority of their weapons from the black market in order to carry out jihad.

This crackdown on knives is just a continuation of the right to bear arms in Britain. First, there was the systematic gun control policies in the course of over a century. Then the authorities forbid British citizens from defending their homes in the event of a burglary, home invasion, etc. (and this is the country where the concept of a man’s home being his castle originated). Thus, anyone whose home is being broken into has to wait for the police to come to the rescue. The only problem is that by the time the police arrive, the perpetrators are long gone.

Meanwhile, supposedly there are attempts in Britain to do away with the concept of trial by jury and allow hearsay in criminal proceedings.

And now the British authorities want to come for people’s knives, including kitchen knives. I wouldn’t be surprised if butter knives and plastic knives are also outlawed. Supposedly there might also be a crackdown on cleaning solutions, on the grounds of acid attacks. However, a majority of such attacks are committed by Muslims, who in turn are responsible for some of the crime throughout Britain, whether it be an act of terrorism or gangland jihad.

Apparently archery is still allowed in Britain, although it could only be a matter of time before a ban is enacted on bows, arrows, and crossbows. Meanwhile, swords are also restricted if not illegal, as is pepper spray and stun guns.

The next thing you know, any type of sharp instrument will be illegal in Britain. Such items would include saws, chainsaws, axes, screwdrivers, pencils, pens, and even eyeglasses (some of you might recall the scene from the Godfather Part III where Don Lucchesi is stabbed in the neck with his own eyeglasses).

Then anything used as a potential bludgeon could be outlawed. That would include not just golf clubs, baseball bats, and crowbars, but also books (especially phone books), canes, etc.

Any object that can be thrown (e.g. brick, ball) could also be allowed.

When it comes down to it, virtually any object can be used as a weapon. Which is why the knife ban and the gun restrictions in Britain need to be reversed. Otherwise, Britain will continue its slippery-slope into tyranny.
