London Has Strict Gun Control – But It Now Leads New York City In Murder Due To Stabbings

London, England has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world. Many of their police don’t even carry guns. However, criminals who are intent on committing murder will find other ways to do it, even if they don’t have access to guns.

London’s stabbing problem has lifted its murder rate higher than New York City’s.

London murder rate beats New York as stabbings surge

London overtook New York in murders for the first time in modern history in February as the capital endured a dramatic surge in knife crime.

Fifteen people were murdered in the capital, against 14 in New York. Both cities have almost exactly the same population.

London murders for March are also likely to exceed or equal New York’s. By late last night there had been 22 killings in the capital, according to the Metropolitan police, against 21 in the US city.

Eight Londoners were murdered between March 14 and March 20 alone and the total number of London murders, even excluding victims of terrorism, has risen by 38% since 2014.

This morning, another person became a victim. A 20-year-old man was stabbed to death…

Criminals don’t care about or follow laws. It doesn’t matter how many gun control laws you pass. People intent on killing will find a way to do it.
