Yeah, some twerp in Worcester got arrested a couple of years back. He claimed it was discrimination because he was a goth, but I think it had more to do with the fact that he was wearing sword, rather than that he was also wearing a cape and makeup! ;D
Yeah, looking that gay in public should be a public offense punishable by arrest, or a good punch to the jaw would be just as affective. ;D
Anyone who disagrees with me is wrong, and obviously not metal.
The bottom-feeding pondlife that voted for Machine Head should all die alone, cold and hungry in a central-heating starved bedsit in Lozells.
You know there's a knife law stating you can't have a blade over 2 inches out with you... does that apply to swords? (blunted edge ones)
The uk weapon laws are quite slack compared to some countries, but there are still a lot of grey areas. For example you can buy some weaponry at a shop perfectly legally, but you can't carry it home! So carrying an ornamental sword around is probably frowned upon, even Sikh's have to carry small replicas these days. If only we lived a few hundred years ago, where wandering the streets in full armour with a huge sword or mighty axe was common place
Sometimes when I'm walking through the Hell that is Selly Oak, listening to Immortal or Dissection or some other fire-and-brimstone stuff, I do wish I could lay waste to the swathes of morons around me. Oh, you were in the Gun Barrels were you? And Darren was there, eh? And you got a pint? That's grounds for me to act as judge, jury and executioner as far as I'm concerned. Waiting at the cashpoint at Tesco Express, you get this pie-slice of a weird section of society that have nothing to say and yet they insist on talking, at loud volumes, while I just want some fucking cash.
Ha ha! I agree, Nicks rant is exactly why sword carrying is not a good idea. If guns were legal in this country I'd have shot some cock in a tracksuit and been locked up years ago. Plastic swords only at this show, I think!
Any sensible suggestions for Birthday activities for the night will be entertained, btw, but I don't want to do too much this year and take away from the bands.
Part of the Criminal Justice Act 1998 (Offensive Weapons) Order 1988 stated. In simple terms Ownership of one, even in your own home, is a criminal offense. However, antique swords, which are 100 years old or older, are legal.
3 Inches is the maximum in the UK hence why Sikh's are allowed to carry Karpins around but only under the circumstances that the other five laws are abode by ie Turbun,clothing and 2 other things
I would like to thank the West Midland Police for there 2 years of criminal law training for that one....
Oh yeah please only bring plastic things to Reanimator.
