Once apon a time in place called the British Empire, Knights wandered the land defending the innocent. Today they would be imprisoned for sitting at home polishing their weapons.
And tell me this, since the last time we heard all this rubbish, when handguns were banned, how many other things have been banned?
It appears your slippery slope is a mere figment of your seemingly over active imagination.

And there was me thinking you were above that.
Histrionics are never very pretty.
We've also discussed your so-called "right" to own lethal weapons - you've never had that right, so I don't know why you keep banging on about them.
The electoral process is there for a reason - we may not always like it, but that's what we've got, and until you can find a way to change the law either within the current framework or by becoming an MP and trying to get it changed yourself, that's what you're stuck with.
Meanwhile, I still await answers to my questions.
And I'll add another - why do you think it's necessary to own a gun or sword to protect yourself?
Isn't your reaction a little out of proportion to the levelof violent crime in this country?
Or do you see yourself as a charles bronson style vigilante, killing all them bad guys?

my first thought was,I should buy a sword-I will not be able to after the ban!
Last month a gang of youths, one armed with a samurai sword, attacked a 15-year-old boy in Newry, County Down.

The article also says..
Exemptions will cover swords which are used for re-enactments or antique weapons kept on display by collectors.
I have no problem with this as I cant think of a single reason someone would want, or need a sword for any other reason than those two above.
