NSW mulls tougher knife laws after Westfield Bondi Junction and Wakeley church ... trends now

A series of stabbings that shocked Sydney has prompted NSW premier Chris Minns to re-examine knife laws in the state. 

A tougher stance on knife laws in NSW could be under way as Sydney reels from three violent stabbing incidents in as many days.

Premier Minns said he is open to strengthening the state's knife laws and noted the violence had left the state's capital in a 'combustible situation'. 

A stabbing attack at a western Sydney church that hospitalised two clergymen on Monday is being treated as a terrorist act, with the teenager allegedly responsible having a history of knife-related crime.

In a separate incident, six people were killed after 40-year-old Joel Cauchi embarked on a stabbing rampage at a Sydney shopping centre on Saturday.
