The takes in here are amazing. It takes about 5 seconds and a search engine to find out that in the UK, it's illegal to carry a knife in public "without good reason" unless it's a folding knife with a blade 3 inches or less in length and the blade is non-locking.

Okay, so at first I thought this was just my uber conservative friends posting memes that were not factual, but then I googled and went to the Mayor of London Twitter feed and there it was. However, I'm still in disbelief and I'm posting it up here to see if I'm somehow taking this out of context? I mean I've checked a few other sources, including ATS, and can't seem to find anything that leads me to believe it's not true.
So, we all know that the US usually follows the EU trends, so this sure is a wake up call to say the least.
