Cracking dual use table there Guppy!!I like it!
Its really pretty silly I think,I mean the thing is it is not the non sentient piece of forged steel that kills people is it?
Come on UK GOV lets ban human BRAINS!!!
Thats where the problem lies...
My mate who is a UK police officer and martial arts enthusiast has owned swords in the past.Even he would now struggle to buy a sword legally in the
UK(even though he is a man of discipline,and would never use a sword against a fellow human.).Heck he wouldn't need to with the stuff the cops carry
However,as he said to me concerning the April 6th ban:
"Nothing is mentioned in the amendment which prohibits the ownership of samurai/curved blades.
The Law just bans the sale/import/lending of any curved blade over 50cm long."
So its not an offense to own a curved blade,only to buy one after the ban(april6).Thats according to my Buddy whos a Cop anyway.
I re read the document,and I agree with him,no mention of ownership being a criminal offense.
Read the doc. and tell me if you think i am right or wrong please folks.
Its a small .PDF.Worth reading.
