possession of a lock knife in a public place without reasonable excuse is an offence.
Possession of a multi-tool incorporating a prohibited blade/pointed article is capable of being an offence under this section even if there are other tools on the instrument which may be of use to a person in a public place (screwdriver, can opener). It is for the person to prove on the balance of probabilities that he/she had good reason for possession

P.S In terms of guns in the UK to own a shotgun you have to have a policeman check your house, you have to have a docter certify that you are alowed to have one and on top of that have a justifiable reason

What is up with your Government? They really got you guys on lockdown. If I were over there I would store all the legal stuff that I can, and Option A: obtain a firearm under the cover of night, then hide it in my house, and never tell or show anyone.. or Option B: wait until a SIT X happens and go grab one off of a dead cop or military personal... Or Option C: find out where I could get one (illegally) if I wanted to but hold off until I think somthing would happen where I would need one. I sure do hope nothing ever happens in your country like "28 days later" the infected really tear you guys appart.
For instance in the UK:
Firearms are illegal (effectively)
Tasers are illegal
Lock Knives are illegal (Yes its true, if you have any knife which locks no matter what the blade size its illegal)
Knives with blades over 3 inches are illegal (unless they are kitchen knives and one or two other exceptions)
Blank firing replicas are illegal (with some exceptions)
Stun batons are illegal (and I think normal police batons are classed as offensive weapons and hence illegal)
