Yeah, seems silly. I know a few people that collect swords for the sole purpose of collection. But silly if they were confiscated. But I'm sure there is more to the process then simply 'see it, take it'.

Are you kidding me? That's nothing, get a load of this. Extreme porn law goes live - are you ready? • The Register

Cant have porn on your hd anymore, not in scotland anyway.
Unless you are into:

It must contain certain specific imagery, including necrophilia, bestiality, activity depicting serious harm to breast, anus or genitals or life-threatening activity.

...then you have nothing to worry about.

As far as the knife thing goes, it looks like they're targeting teenagers that carry blades. That's just fine in my book. Even more okay with me is that they are targeting people dumb enough to take pictures of themselves brandishing weapons, sometimes in public places!! How retarded are these people? I'm all for cops going after dumb teenagers.

Here's my thought, as an example. I'm a knife and sword collector, as is a buddy of mine who is trained in their use (he has practiced martial arts since he was a little kid, and has been training in traditional sword techniques for about five years now). I've got a few pictures of me and him messing around with swords and knives, including video he uses as training aids to critique his methods (whereas I become the sparing partner). Now, lets say I put these up on facebook, so we can share our pictures and videos back and forth. Does that mean I risk getting, at the very least, a phonecall from the police, and at the most, our collections confiscated? (Assuming I live in Scotland.)

What's to stop them from going after baseball players showing off their latest bat or aspiring chefs showing off the set of Henckels knives they got for their birthday? Quite the slippery slope they've got going here. Is it really worth that much of an invasion of privacy? Think about it, it's the same as if you posted a drunk picture of you and friends on facebook and the cops came to your house to give you an underage ticket.

Maybe I'm alone in this, but it sounds a bit funky to me and I hope it doesn't become the norm here in the US.

Yeah, Mike, they're coming for you man.



If they do this in the US... Wow. I don't know what'll happen if they pick up something like this in the US... First off, it's unconstitutional, second off, it's absolutely retarded. ANYTHING can be used as a weapon. ANYTHING. A baguette can be used as a ****ing weapon. These politicians keep making ridiculous laws thinking they can stop crime. YOU CANNOT STOP CRIME! Crime might slow to a trickle if we made the death penalty the mandatory sentence for any people found guilty of a felonious crime or worse... But that might be considered "unethical" xD

This just pisses me off. "It's been such a resounding success that we're going to continue doing it"... haha. wow. bloody wanker
