Ok I admit I’m lost I’m not seeing much common sense here. I appreciate that some weapons were banned as they were associated and pretty much symbolised gang violence back in the day, like flick knives and knuckle dusters were closely associated with gangs of angry teddy boys. But balisongs and some others seem to have been banned just to ban them. I’m not even going to try and get my head around this replica vs airsoft vs co2 gas powered air guns that look like real guns, or the rules regarding samurai swords. What’s bugging me is I can’t buy a telescopic baton legaly, but I can buy a flick out spring cosh thing, I can’t buy an old school ebony police baton nor the riot batons, but I can buy a lead loaded cosh, slapper, stick designed to hit folks with (escrima sticks) a tonfa is ok, so why not a police baton? It makes no sense to me.
