Meh, it seems like a fine decision to make.

Now the swords will stay at walls/similar places as ornaments or at museums were they ought to be.

The legislation was it seems, meant mainly to stop youth from getting hold on cheap replicates and use 'em in violence.

why bother? Knives are far more common and more effective for people who don't know how to use weapons (longer, heavier blade= more chance to hurt yourself or a mate while swinging it around untrained) so whats the point in this ban?

they should ban other items that are more common.
anyone can spot a guy with a samurai sword in a middle of the crowd..so yeah it's unlikely for anyone to commit crimes..XDXDXD

how about banning drugs, knives as stated by other ppl above?

If you all haven't noticed drugs, guns and knives ARE banned, they still exist.
I don't greatly mind, my sword stays in my room anyway, the only time I ever held it outside was wehn I was moving. I mean, afterall it is a weapon and it can kill. Seems to make sense really.
