The UK is so foreign to me in terms of disarming their citizens. The London mayor basically chastised any citizen who believes they need a knife for self defense right at the time his city is experiencing a rise in murder-by-knife. Yes Mayor, now is the time to disarm myself?

Conversely it seems the police are armed with little more than stern words and cross looks.

How is he any different than Rahm Emanuel in Chicago?

Or the lunatics running San Francisco?

Those mayors espouse an ideology, hence it has no merit to be viewed in any logical context. In an ultimate case of idealistic irony, of course, they all have armed protection details...
