    Sometimes, I guess I take the freedoms that (some) Americans still enjoy for granted. Brings to mind the old adage, "I complained about having no shoes, until I met a man with no feet." A country that goes to this extreme is just beyond belief.

    At this point in British history, I'm surprised it's still legal for the ARMY to have guns...:rolleyes:

    It aint just England...

    If I rememebr the code section right 12020 of the california penal code disallows shurikens (throwing stars), billy clubs, nunchucks, brass knuckles, and other such things..

    This happened because of all of the people in california that have been killed beause of rapant ninja assaults.....

    virtually anything can be used as a deadly weapon. Are they banning anything that isn't a plush toy?


    Actually, a high level ninja could even use a plus toy as a lethal weapon, but trust me you don't want to know how.

    I would have said that knives could be deadly weapons in the right hands, but that is me.
    Caine slew Able with a rock. Where the intent is strong, a way will be found.

    I believe they are equally bad or worse in Australia.

    Australian Customs guide for travellers:

    "...electric fly swatters [are]... prohibited or require a permit and safety testing before importation". Page 9.

    Whenever reading anything about England, I remember one thing: They used to be the most powerful nation in the world. These liberal policies have turned them into an also ran country. They are following the course of many other countries that adopted socialistic, liberal policies and policies which have taken individual freedom away from their citizens. Like all the countries that have done this before them, they are circling the drain.
