The Right to Sever Arms

Last week, the British government outlawed the sale of samurai swords in a move that demonstrated the very same brand of despotism that led our own great nation to break away from the crown. The United Kingdom's Home Office made the move in response to a wave of recent crimes involving the weapons, including the murder of a member of parliament and a violent rampage that injured 11 in front of a Catholic church.
This should prove a very import point about gun control. A country that already outlawed most guns now has a sword epidemic. When will governments learn that they can't legislate away craziness. Samurai swords don't kill people, people with samurai swords do - very quietly.
