So who are the ones who use these knives to assault people? What are the gun laws in Britain? Maybe I should research that.

You're right of course, Scotsman, and I've always enjoyed it when you dispel the silly myth that guns are outlawed in the UK.

But I'm curious about a couple things: First, my own specific handgun (best handgun ever made IMO), the Ruger New Model Blackhawk .357 revolver:

https://www.riflegear.com/images/product/medium/5603_1_.jpg

Is this legal in the UK?

And my second question concerns storing and carrying: Can you carry this handgun, loaded, concealed, in public in the UK? And can you store it, loaded, in the night-table drawer right next to your bed? I mean, what's the point of owning a gun if you can't have instant access to it in a sudden emergency?

Good questions.
Ruger Blackhawks are fine firearms. I have four - an 'old "Three Screw" Model' (.357 Mag), two 'new model' in .357 Mag (4 5/8" and 7 1/2" barrels) and a .45 Colt 7 1/2" barrel.

I assume that the "22" in Scotsman's poster is referring to .22 Rimfire being 'OK'.

Yeah, .22 doesn't necessarily tell the whole story. There are varieties of .22.

And sounds like a nice collections of handguns. (Lots of people might've said "pistols" but I know better. ;))

Amid Surge in Knife Violence, British Supermarket Chain Pulls Kitchen Knives off Shelves
BY JOHN ELLIS
MARCH 9, 2019
PJ Media
<More Surprise Here>

In the face of rising knife violence rates in the UK, supermarket chain Asda will no longer be selling individual kitchen knives. This comes on the heels of the company's decision in 2016 to securely package all knives after a customer was stabbed inside a Poundland, another British grocery chain. For their part, Poundland stopped selling knives altogether last year. The grocery chains aren't entirely incorrect England does have a growing knife violence problem. However, regulating knives won't stop the violence. And, boy, does England have a growing knife violence problem.

Over the first three months of 2019, England, with a population of just under 56 million, has seen 41 people killed by a knife based on this BBC report. According to the LA Times, "There were 285 knife homicides in England and Wales from April 1, 2017, to March 31, 2018, the highest number since comparable records began in 1946."

That same article bluntly states, "Knives are the most common weapon used in slayings in the U.K., where guns are tightly restricted. About 40% of the country's homicide victims were stabbed to death last year, while only 4% were shot."

Drilling down into the stats even further, The Guardian ran an article this past week bemoaning the rising knife violence in the UK. While putting forward possible reasons, including cuts to police forces across the island country, the article gives the grim fact that nearly 40,000 knife-related crimes were committed in England in 2018.

The BBC article linked to above goes on to add:

Single kitchen knives are the most frequently stolen knives, Asda said, prompting the decision to stop their sale by the end of April. Nick Jones, Asda senior vice-president, said the company had "a responsibility to support the communities we serve". "Whilst we have already taken steps to restrict the sale of knives to ensure that they do not fall into the wrong hands, we felt there was more we could be doing to support those looking at how to bring this issue under control", he said.

Obviously, the UK needs to address the growing knife violence. Sadly, like leftists in the United States, England seems determined to continue to ignore the actual problems, choosing instead to blame an inanimate object that can easily be substituted for another inanimate object.

I am having visions of people wearing trench coats in dark alleys and whipping them open to show their wares to beleaguered home cooks and chefs everywhere so that they can get their hands on a reasonable set of implements so they can cook at home.

Okay, I'm gonna play the girl card here and admit that I know nothing about guns, other than the fact that she's a Ruger, .44 Magnum, and my father was always amused that he had his before Dirty Harry made it popular.

However, I will get into my hope chest to see if I can find out any other information from the box so that I can relay it.

Dirty Harry carried a Smith & Wesson Model 29, not a Ruger Super Blackhawk.
