Saying there is never a reason to carry a knife is a completely ridiculous statement.
Current rules are that they must be non-locking and less than 3" unless you have good reason. That won't change. But the government are proposing to restrict sales and redefine flick knives (which are currently illegal to own) to include one-hand openers (flippers, maybe thumbstuds, etc.).https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/offensive-and-dangerous-weapons-new-legislationhttps://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/651830/Offensive_and_Dangerous_Weapons-Consultation-.pdfhttps://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/651760/IA_knives.pdf
Did you ask them for i.d certifying their “scumbag” status first?

a bit OT, but a few hours ago two men fought with a large knife and a machete on the streets of my city, on a not-so-good neighborhood known for its troublesome inhabitants. It was recorded on video, and one of them (the big recurve machete) was indeed a Zombie machete! I had a few of those back then when I didn't know anything about knives, they are 440 steel and had all the green, zombie and blood stains all over themso zombie knives can be a problem! though the real problem here was the mentally unstable man wielding it, all was over some drug deal that went wrong...one ended up in the hospital
Just enforce the smurfing laws we already have with a sensible number of properly trained, motivated police and a justice system setup to both deter and rehabilitate. It's not smurfing rocket science, but the moey grabbing shower of smurf we currently have in control of this country can't see past the end of their pudgy snouts.
I really do wish sometimes that we didn't have a smurfing swear filter.
... fix the rest of the accompanying system.
