Authentic Samurai Sword said...

I own a website that sells a variety of swords and weapons, and I have always been cautious as to who I sell my products to, (especially children, or those that ask if a sword can cut through a tree) but I might have to re-think my policies if adults are acting foolish as well. We didn't design our Authentic Samurai Sword section to sell items that would be used this way, but to provide the background of each piece and offer a chance to own the history (or fantasy) whichever the case may be.

Well my point to the post, is that people determined to do evil, will find a way. if they cannot aquire a gun, they may use a sword, or a can of gas, etc.
Banning somthing will not prevent it's misuse.
