Why not ban naggers there?

the question is...
why would you want a katana, or any other type of sword in the first place?

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.


when was the last time you saw some stupid kid running around hitting people with a katana?
this law has no practical use


If you read the link that was given in the start of the post, you'll see there has been several cases of teens using katanas. And I don't live in UK, and Asian culture ain't as well known up here, so no never seen anyone run with a katana.

I read the article.
It's stupid but because of some people who can't be responsible, in my opinion, I think it's needed. It's a shame though. Katanas aren't toys to play, but to display as an art or something to defend yourself.

there's good reason for them being banned, I'm sure if I searched harder than for 1 minute I could find more.
