Is it Time to Ban “Assault Knives”?

Update

Contrary to Mr. Bloomberg’s outlook on what is dangerous (soda pop, salt, and guns), the stabbings continue.  Once again, another stabbing attack from a Moslem in London:

A man has been shot dead by armed cops today after stabbing two people in a knife rampage terror attack on a London high street…Security sources have said it is being treated as an “Islamist” attack – after tentative cops were seen approaching his body.

Another stabbing spree.  This time in Colorado:

A man allegedly stabbed eight people at several locations in Colorado Springs, Colorado, early Monday morning in what police said was a random spree of violence.

What do you know?  Another murderous knife attack by a Moslem in London:

Usman Khan, 28, convicted of “terrorism offenses” in 2012, killed two people, injuring three others before bystanders held him at bay — one wielding a narwhal tusk and the other a fire extinguisher.

Are you surprised?

U.S. Air Force Col. Rob Maness (ret.) observed that attacks of this nature would be less likely if the right to keep and bear arms weren’t curtailed.  “Why is a right to keep and bear arms essential to a free society?” he asked.  “Because citizens should not be forced to pick up a narwhal tusk and fire extinguisher to stop a terrorist, that’s why.”   

An example occurred one day after the London attack, when an attempted armed robbery of a Hardee’s restaurant at an Atlanta suburb was thwarted by an armed bread delivery truck driver.

Let’s check in on France and see how they’re doing:

Four police officers have been killed by a fellow employee in a knife attack at the force’s headquarters in Paris, says a union official.  The 45-year-old attacker, who was said to have worked for the police for 20 years, was shot dead at the scene.

Let’s check in on England and see how they’re doing after outlawing weapons:

Britain has been battling a knife crime epidemic with fatal stabbings as deaths are at their highest level since the Second World War.

Violent crimes have surged in the capital since Sadiq Khan took office as mayor, with 2018 the bloodiest year in a decade.

The staggering statistics come a day after a report revealed that super-criminals who are caught carrying knives and committing crimes several times are STILL escaping jail.

This is from an older CBS new story that despite the complete ban on guns, murders in London now outpace murders in New York City.:

A surge of stabbings in London was blamed Monday for the city overtaking New York’s monthly murder tally for the first time in modern history. Fifteen people were murdered in London during February, compared to 14 in New York, according to police figures… London’s murder rate has grown by nearly 40 percent in three years, while police figures show that New York’s has fallen by 87 percent since 1990

The Leftists in America appear to forget the 85 deaths in France from a truck intentionally running over pedestrians, or the 132 deaths in England from people being stabbed by knives…  Just a day ago, a crazy man in California stabbed 4 people to death.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man who was “full of anger” went on a two-hour stabbing and robbery rampage in Southern California, killing four people and wounding two others, authorities said Wednesday… The brutal and puzzling attack came just days after a pair of mass shootings in Texas and Ohio left 31 people dead and stunned the nation.

Given this dose of reality, why aren’t the Democrats calling out to ban trucks and knives?
