Blades Don't Kill People, People Kill People
The UK government is about to make a huge mistake, even huger than letting the Beckhams emigrate to the U.S. They are going to ban samurai swords because the weapons are deemed "too dangerous". Naturally, the NSA (National Samurai Association) is reeling and people are vowing to to defy the ban with bold statements such as, "You can have my sword after you pry it from my cold, dead hands." Apparently samurai swords are the second favorite weapon of choice for organized gangs, right after guns. Thankfully, the goverment is providing a loophole for geeks. Members of groups such as the To-ken Society of Great Britain and the British Kendo Association will still be permitted to own them.
