Trump thinks London "a knife-armed war zone"?

After the mass shooting at Sante Fe High school, Republicans were quick to roll out their usual "don't bother us now" reasons why people will keep getting killed needlessly by guns; it's a cultural thing. Change that and human nature in the next century, and we'll all be safer.

Wait, remember how concealed carry will deter the bad guys because they won't know who had a gun? Oh yeh, that didn't work.

One Democratic politician bottom lined it when he said mass shooters are only being encouraged, knowing Republicans will never make it harder for them to succeed.

Guns are like Knives? And then there's that ridiculous comparison. Thank god Trump, our 70-year old man-child president, continues to showcase America's gun lunacy in front of the entire astonished world with embarrassing statements like this: 
Trump managed to stoke outrage and anger in both London and Paris this weekend ... addressing the National Rifle Association convention in Dallas the president cited the rising number of knife attacks in Britain while speaking in support of gun rights in the United States ... about halfway through his 50-minute speech
“I recently read a story that in London, which has unbelievably tough gun laws, a once very prestigious hospital — right in the middle — is like a war zone for horrible stabbing wounds. Yes, that’s right, they don’t have guns. They have knives, and instead there’s blood all over the floors of this hospital. They say it’s as bad as a military war zone hospital.”

“Knives, knives, knives,” Trump added as he made a stabbing motion.

“London hasn’t been used to that. They’re getting used to it. Pretty tough. The one thing that has always stood between the American people and the elimination of our Second Amendment rights has been conservatives in Congress willing to fight for those rights. We’re fighting.”
Of course, the truth made Trump look like the silly orange clown that he is: 
Trump's comments immediately drew a backlash from Londoners on social media. Charlie Falconer, a lawyer and representative of the left-wing Labour Party in the House of Lords, favorably compared Britain's murder rate to the U.S. rate and added: “Trump lies on everything.”
