Have your say about sword and knife laws

The Government has launched a site asking for ideas as to which laws etc people would like to see changed. This is possibly a unique opportunity for those who enjoy collecting and using knives and swords for legitimate legal purposes to have our say.

It only takes seconds to sign up to use the site and to propose your own ideas and rate and comment on those already proposed.

The site is here:

There is a current proposal to overturn the poor case law (or ammend S.139 CJA 1988) to allow people to carry sub 3" lock knife as an "Every day carry" knife, without the "good reason" necessary at the moment. I would ask you all to support this if you agree. Link here: ... fic-reason

Also one for redefining gravity knives to prevent lock knives being seized by HMRC when they clearly are not gravity knives. ... definition

there doesnt seem to be a proposal about swords yet. maybe one for Loz ?

Many Thanks

Good post kiri.

Remember, the sqeaky wheel gets oiled!
You can't wait for the next guy to do something, because the next guy is also waiting for the next guy!
Make the next guy, YOU!!!

If you want something done, do it yourself!!

Also, just like in the U.S. the people trying to take your weapons away from you are a minority, who think they know what's best for everyone.
You let them do this, what will be next?
And there will be a next.

Our governments are so worried about the rights of minorities,
while trampling on the rights of their own citizens!

If you speak up, Loudly!
Let them know how many of us there are!
and how we will vote them out of office, if they continue with these laws!

How do you think Donald Trump got elected as President of the U.S.
Don't complain. if you don't do anything!
