Blades in the Streets of London By John Steele
Here is another problem for the gun banning lobby, because they should be arguing that majority non-white London, with some of the strictest gun control measures in the world, should be ultra-safe. But, it is not, for homicides in London are now greater than homicides in New York city (also with strict gun control), this year:
“London overtook New York in murders for the first time in modern history in February as the capital endured a dramatic surge in knife crime. Fifteen people were murdered in the capital, against 14 in New York. Both cities have almost exactly the same population. London murders for March are also likely to exceed or equal New York’s. By late last night there had been 22 killings in the capital, according to the Metropolitan police, against 21 in the US city. Eight Londoners were murdered between March 14 and March 20 alone and the total number of London murders, even excluding victims of terrorism, has risen by 38% since 2014.”
Banning guns has not solved the problem of violence, for now the goblins simply use knives, or illegal guns, as is done in Melbourne:

That old song seems strangely optimistic now.
