A lot of people may think this is a stupid idea due to possible stabbing incident rates rising, but let me tell you how letting anyone carry knives around would prevail justice.

First, stabbing incidents happen because a criminal has for whatever reason, brought a knife out to maybe mug someone or kill someone for some other reason. Now obviously the other person most probably wouldn't have a knife as it is illegal. Now baring in mind the criminal has a knife on him and therefore the law doesn't affect his decision, if carrying knives around everywhere became legal, this gives the victim a better chance of defending themselves as law will apply to them carrying around knives.

This could also lower the chances of stabbings as if criminals know it is legal, then there is a higher chance the criminal wouldn't try in the first place due to fear of getting stabbed by the victim.

I completely agree with this argument, so I'm excited to see where it goes! Also, I had no idea that carrying a knife was illegal in the UK.

Where is it illegal to carry a knife? I don't see how the argument is valid.
