The result of strict gun control in the UK: One machete crime every 90 minutes on Britain’s streets

Paging Piers Morgan…

From Daily Mail: Machete attacks are taking place every 90 minutes on our streets, figures reveal. Criminals are increasingly picking the jungle blades as their weapons of choice to instill terror in victims and rival gang members.

Police forces are dealing with rising numbers of machete-wielding thugs carrying out murders, rapes, robberies and burglaries.

In February, 20-year-old Sadiq Aadam was hacked to death in Belsize Park, north London, by a gang carrying the blades. A teenager has since appeared in court charged with murdering two young men.

Days earlier, father-of-two David Pugh suffered serious injuries after fighting off four machete-wielding robbers who broke into his home and started beating his 17-year-old son in Solihull, West Midlands.

And in March, a man was left with life-changing injuries after a ‘chilling’ machete attack at a bar in Manchester. The victim, in his 30s, had been at the nightspot with his friends when another man walked past him and shouted abuse at a group of people in the bar.

Police said when the victim asked him to calm down, the offender turned to his friend and asked for a machete before striking the victim’s hand.

The shocking statistics come after Home Secretary Amber Rudd launched the Government’s long-awaited Serious Violence Strategy, which aims to tackle knife crime, earlier this week. It came amid a shooting and stabbing spree that has claimed 56 lives in London so far this year.

Figures uncovered using freedom of information requests show that in the last two months of 2017 police dealt with 928 crimes involving machetes. This is an average of 15 a day – or one every 90 minutes. London saw 425 of the attacks, with 99 in Greater Manchester, 77 in the West Midlands and 29 each in Merseyside and West Yorkshire.

It represents a dramatic rise from just three years before, when the deadly blades were used in only 100 crimes a month over the same period.

The machete was originally intended as a tool used to cut undergrowth or sugar cane in Latin America and Africa. Critics say they have little legitimate use in the UK, but they are not on a list of banned blades such as butterfly or flick-knives.

Gangsters are increasingly carrying the fearsome blades as status symbols and to spread fear with gruesome attacks.

Machetes came to public prominence in May 2013 when British soldier Lee Rigby was butchered in broad daylight by two Islamist fanatics.

Figures from the Office for National Statistics show that in the year to September 2017 the police recorded 37,443 offences involving a knife or sharp instrument – a 21 per cent increase on the previous year, and the highest since records began seven years ago.

On Monday, Miss Rudd promised an Offensive Weapons Bill, which will ban online knife sales to under-18s and make it illegal to possess so-called zombie knives, with long, serrated blades with a maximum four-year jail penalty.

  6. And how is a machete not a form of sword? More evidence that this invasion is an act of war.

    • The only way to control this is to force people to commit suicide when threatened. It’s the only way. How else are they going to put the dark people where the white people belong? I’m sure it’s all in The Plan.

    • With the concept of banning knives,it occurs to me,they’ll face the very same issue as GUN banning-what is consider a knife/gun?
      Is a sword/assault rifle?
      Is a kitchen knife/deer rifle?
      See what I mean? Where will they draw the line? They MIGHT just have to ban ALL knives/guns.
      Good luck with that. And what will be the NEXT tool to be banned?
      It’s taken Centuries to evolve to this point,and now Liberalism,Socialism and all their mindless variants have turned EVOLUTION back to DEVOLUTION,purely because of a desire to control us far beyond our God given,Constitutionally protected RIGHTS,because of their irrational fears of specific TOOLS we’ve developed for specific jobs.
      The ONE thing that all these idiots share universally is that they act,not based on facts or logic,or even common sense (but I notice they ALWAYS include this foreign-to-them concept of common sense in the very same sentence as Gun Control-“It’s past time for ‘common sense gun control legislature’..” you know their call word for word by now.) Funny-this phrase qualifies them as “Masters of the Oxymoron”. They act on fear,want of control over all others,or simply on what their “Talking Heads” TELL them to act on.

    Are you sure the Brits got to vote when the Mayor was elected? His statement – GET USE TO IT – was certainly an “off color joke.” I bet the Brits are anxious for the next election to put a real mayor into office. This guy just walks around in his empty suit.

    • I think the problem may lie with the district boundaries and the demographics. They will never have another white mayor because there are insufficient whites there to elect one.

      The “City of London” encompasses a large swath of London. The area of London it encompasses has lots of Pakistanis and other Muslim “immigrants”. The most common name for boys in Britain now is “Muhammed”.

  10. At what point will they come up with the idea that people who are threatened by this degree of mayhem deserve to be able to protect themselves? This kind of sick mentality on the part of the British government is just plain evil.

    How many tourists are actually going to desire to go to London with a machete attack happening every 90 minutes? Unbelievable! I suppose pretty soon, all the Hollywood types to went to England so that they could live in a safe space . . . will decide that they want to return to the USA.

    All of the nitwits here who are against persons being able to protect themselves should have a high intensity workshop as to what happens in places like London where no one can protect themselves.
