Not planning on necessarily 'doing' anything with them.

So CS Gladius , Couple of Latino style Machetes , Sjambok , Tomahawk or Two.

If these things are now illegal ( I maybe misreading ) how then is it still possible to purchase them?

Before you get worried, have you waded through reading the legislation? If you have, which part do you think your items fall foul of?

On my reading, none of those items appear to be featured in the new legislation.

TeeDee, I suggest you go to post #1, click on the link and go straight to the appendices - it will only take a minute to read and I'm sure it will allay all your concerns. Anything any of us say is just Chinese whispers.

"....from people's bedsides and behind the front door?" I can see a desire to take them out of a criminals hands but why on earth would you want to take away what sounds like a last ditch defense from a homeowner/renter?
The aim of the act is to reduce the amount of such weapons in circulation generally.

Mod hat on:

19 assorted posts have been trimmed from the thread, five of which were mine. I am sorry that I contributed to the drift.
This wasn't meant to be a thread about the use of weapons for self defence. It shouldn't have become a thread about shootings in America.

If I see posts going that way again, rather than be drawn into a debate, I will just move them elsewhere. If any member thinks that there is value to the community in a thread about the differences between the US and the UK regarding self defence, blades, guns, gun controls and mass shootings, let me know and we will consider starting a thread in the Full Members area.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Chris

Why is this thread now discussing shootings in America?

I tend to agree, although I find the debate interesting and am a Firearms owner myself this thread has now gone awry.

Please can both parties return to a more UK centric debate.

Thanks for the apology Chris. I just find it frustrating that quite an important issue to some of us turns into debating something totally irrelevant to the subject in hand. If discussion on gun crime and shootings in America is wanted and seen as relevant to bushcraft in the UK, maybe a separate thread could be started.

Let me see what I can do.

Edit. Done. Posts moved elsewhere. I am afraid there were one or two that were somewhat collateral damage, but most didn't belong here.

See my post #78.
There have been several points where the thread departed from useful advice, facts and serious questions. Some going quite a way off topic. I have left those, but from here on this will be a UK only thread about the legislation.

Sorry @Stew. I tried to avoid it but the comparisons are inevitable when the main points of either discussion are:
1) Will the legislation have any real impact on reducing violent crimes
vs
2) Will the legislation impair legitimate pursuits by citizens (and indeed, just defining what is “legitimate.” As has been stated in many, many previous threads by many members; bushcraft just isn’t considered by the public as anything more than an eccentricity.
