    "It is simply far too easy at present for these weapons to be bought and sold."

    Just another irresponsible law repeating the unneccessary mistakes of nmine years ago.

    I find it an insult that people this thick were ever elected. Says a lot about our voting people, doesn't it?

    ++Edit: Anyone know any computer shops/repair places that would hire a person with an HND in Tech Support?++

    Disgraceful. That's all I can say really. Good news is that it's all so fluffy that it won't make any difference to anyone really, not even the law abiding. 'Reasonable steps'? So:

    "Excuse me, you going to murder someone with this?"

    "Nope."

    "Ok, here you go."

    From what I've read, it looks like the sellers will have to make a note of the customer's name and address.

    Seeing as this is the Scottish Parliament, it won't affect me . . . yet! :what: I hope that this is not attempted here in England.

    This is absolutely moronic, and I will say no more on the matter, because my words would all be of the curse variety. :cuss:

    Given that the Scots drink more and do more violent crime than anyone in Western Europe, hmm. Nope. They should still be allowed to buy swords. We should probably just put a big fence at Hadrian's Wall and around some of the British urban areas and warn innocent people away :scrutiny:

    It amazes me that scots are going to let themselves be disarmed even symbolicly (sp), they've been through this before, and it didn't go well for them at that time either.

    Most of the people still in Scotland are to Drunk/High to care in the slightest.

    Unfortunately you can count on it happening, What happens first in Scotland, Happens Later in England.
    (You need look no further than the Extreme gun Control resulting From Dunblane for an example)

    If I were you, I would be making plans to Imigrate to the US, the US has it's problems to, but it's still WAY better than the UK.

    Only the Lowlands of Scotland are like that, The Midlands and Highlands are an entirely Different Story, Albet a somewhat blind most of the time to things that are going on.

    An ovservation.

    I have noticed that everytime someone poses a bbc article or other UK article on any weapons ban, especialy all these knife things...

    ... the article NEVER has any dissenting opinion. The closest to it is the one guy who says somthing along the lines of "this law will not fix the problem, we need even more!"

    What? Even the US media isnt that obviously biased. That story quoted 5 people who agreed that the policy was a sound one.

    Where is the guy who said "This is effing ridiculous!!!"?

    Or does he really not exist? :uhoh:

    It's a Combination of many British giving up on expressing Descent, and the BBC "Censoring" most comments.

    To most British people, a knife (or sword or macheteetc) is a weapon, nothing more. Nobody uses proper knives (except a handful of bushcrafters, hunters, outdoorsman etc, and knife collectors of course) so they have lost all connection with practical use. The only time they see a folding knife or a machete is on the news when someone has been killed with one so gradually they have come to thhink of knives only as weapons.

    It's interesting to note however that most stabbings in the UK involved cheap kitchen knives, not 'tactical' knives or machetes etc. Somehow, people have managed to ignore the fact that they use knives in the kitchen everyday, split them into two seperate worlds - evil knives that everyone else has, and my kitchen knives.

    Then, years of media and government talk of 'too many people are carrying weapons' people have just been engrained with this idea that weapns are evil and need to be banned. It's genius really because now we have a situation where only outlaws and thugs carry weapons, so when someone like me calls for everyone to be able to, people immediately think everyone will end up like those thugs and outlaws.

    I'd like to see a poll from the majority of people in Scotland and see their opinions on this matter.I suspect that the majority support this,since the vast majority supported the various other bans.
    The fact is that this will only change if the views of the majority change.
    Call tyranny of the majority if you will,but it's a myth that this is being forced on them by parliament.If the majority wants it,then let them have mob rule.

    OTOH,I'm glad our founding fathers understood that mob rule doesn't work.

    I don't think we'll see this anytime soon in England. Some MP called for a ban on swords here in England and was shouted down as an idiot lol.
