    That is pathetic. Those folks don't have enough to do.

    It says they also have a ban in Salem and Saugus. As I recall, when I was in Salem they didn't really enforce this except on Halloween - In fact the Army Barracks sells knives and swords and daggers right in down town Salem (Corner of Washington St. and Essex St.) and nobody ever stops people.

    We did have a kid busted for carrying a knife once on Halloween after he threatened some of my staff at an event. (It was actually hilarious when the Boston Mounted Cop cornered the kid with a horse) I think they eventually used the posession of a knife thing to get the kid.

    The problem with laws like this is they can decide at anytime to enforce them against everyone.

    Well this is the State that put trigger locks on the 1700's Brown Bess muskets they had displayed in the State House, or some other public venue.

    RH got it right, "Never underestimate the power of human stupidity."

    Only now, I'm starting to think that he, along with Mr. Murphy, was actually something of an optimist.

    There must be links and so influences, thru associations with UK and Aus Gov's - as the ''ban for no good reason disease'' is obviously alive and well. Flourishing in fact.

    Free thinking sensible people would not do this! Would they?! Guess they did

    machetes, sabers, swords, knives, ice picks and other similar weapons with 2.5-inch or longer blades capable of penetrating a police officer's vest are banned in Lawrence.
    Geez, I would be instant poor there. I have about 5 machetes (I get tired of shapening them when I do blackberry control in the summer around the house), 2 real civil war sabers, 1 sword (don't know if it's real or not but it came sharpened and it is sharp), about 10 knives way over 2.5 inches including two autos of which one I carry almost 24/7, 2 ice picks (I buy blocks of ice, cheaper and my ice machine doesn't work on the fridge so I chop it up and put into it), and a Klingon knife to boot (as well as a couple of boot knives).

    What morons. Hell, both of my sabers are worth more then they will make in their lifetime, maybe I should put my name on the ballot to be "king". Geez.

    (Oh, on the sabers which my dad has at the moment, one is reported to be from a great, great, great (forget how many greats) relative on my fathers side (Southern) and the second is the same but from a relative a couple of times removed (never understoon that removed stuff) also on my fathers side but Northern. Been in the family for countless years.

    Not that the Second Amendment means anything to the hand wringing weapon banners. However, in colonial times "arms" usually meant weapons that could be carried. This included knives, swords, rifles and pistols. So "to keep and bear arms" would have inluded these weapons.
